friday movie quote

Danilov Joseph Fiennes

“I’ve been such a fool, Vassili. Man will always be man. There is no new man. We tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there’d be nothing to envy your neighbor. But there’s always something to envy. A smile, a friendship, something you don’t have and want to appropriate. In this world, even a Soviet one, there will always be rich and poor. Rich in gifts, poor in gifts. Rich in love, poor in love.”

-Danilov (Joseph Fiennes), Enemy at the Gates (2001)

One thought on “friday movie quote

  1. John D.:
    You found a movie that I haven’t seen (again)…but one which I do PLAN to see as soon as I can.
    The quote is a wonderfully profound one.
    Makes me want to watch the movie JUST for the context on the quote.

    Good call.

    Have a great weekend & roll safe out there.
