Weekly Quote

When I was over at The Stitchy Life, I realized yesterday was Woody Allen's birthday. So in honor of him, I give you a couple of my favorite Woody quotes.

Annie Hall

There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly.

Love and Death

Sonja: Judgment of any system, or a priori relationship or phenomenon exists in an irrational, or metaphysical, or at least epistemological contradiction to an abstract empirical concept such as being, or to be, or to occur in the thing itself, or of the thing itself. Boris: Yes, I've said that many times.

Hannah and Her Sisters

I'm going through a period of my life where I just can't be around people.

I grew up watching his films. Woody Allen is definitely my favorite director. I think I can thank him for my sense of humor and for my husband wanting to go on a second date with me. I've tried to declare my favorite film of his, but I just can't narrow it down. I seriously could have put 100 quotes in this post, but I'll save some for another day. Do you have a favorite Woody Allen quote or film?

Oh yes, I did a post a while back on Diane Keaton. You can check it out here.
