They didn't put the first of my favorite quote from my favorite film. So I'll post the full quote here. #355, Orson Welles' Harry Lime in the Third Man, "In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

I love this, and it is a new one to me. Emminently true and widely applicable, I think, as well.

In truth, I haven't gotten through the whole list myself yet.

As it happens the Third Man was written by my favorite (fiction) author, Graham Greene so it's his writing.

Ewww ... drunken, pseudo-Marxist, whiny expatriate stuff. I read "The Power and the Glory" about 20 years ago - and it was good - but not good enough to encourage me to read more.

P.S. I much prefer Graham Greene (the actor).
