“ made me smile happily, cry a little feeling my soul's getting generous and revealed, and, yeah, it's worth watching again and again. and the great number of charming sayings!
Alvy Singer: "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. The... the other important joke, for me, is one that's usually attributed to Groucho Marx; but, I think it appears originally in Freud's "Wit and Its Relation to the Unconscious," and it goes like this - I'm paraphrasing - um, "I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member." That's the key joke of my adult life..." ” - Relleterofa

“ Do kraju tego, gdzie kruszynę chleba
Podnoszą z ziemi przez uszanowanie
Dla darów Nieba....
Tęskno mi, Panie...

Do kraju tego, gdzie winą jest dużą
Popsować gniazdo na gruszy bocianie,
Bo wszystkim służą...
Tęskno mi, Panie...

Do kraju tego, gdzie pierwsze ukłony
Są, jak odwieczne Chrystusa wyznanie,
"Bądź pochwalony!"
Tęskno mi, Panie...

Tęskno mi jeszcze i do rzeczy innej,
Której już nie wiem, gdzie leży mieszkanie,
Równie niewinnej...
Tęskno mi, Panie...

Do bez-tęsknoty i do bez-myślenia,
Do tych, co mają tak za tak - nie za nie,
Bez światło-cienia...
Tęskno mi, Panie...

Tęskno mi owdzie, gdzie któż o mnie stoi?
I tak być musi, choć się tak nie stanie
Przyjaźni mojéj...
Tęskno mi, Panie...
C. Norwid ” - Relleterofa
