friday movie quote


“It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow men. If it goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. It is doomed to wander through the world — Oh, woe is me! — and witness what it cannot share, but might have shared on Earth and turned to happiness!”

-Jacob Marley (Michael Hordern), A Christmas Carol (1951)
