What Every Man Need To Know

" Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good. That honour, courage and virtue mean everything ; that power and money ... money and power mean nothing. That good always triumphs over evil. And I want you to remember this.... that love....true love never dies ! Remember that boy ... remember that. Doesn't matter if it is true or not, a man should believe in those things , because those are the things worth believing in...... got that ? "

Hub McCann (Robert Duvall) - Second Hand Lions

My favorite scene from one of my favorite movies.

I really liked that movie, it had some good lessons in it as well as entertainment. I mean come on, who doesn't love Robert Duval??

Jamie White said...

I like that he is willing to take "small" roles that have true real life content and power. My favorite Duvall movie - Tender Mercies where he won the Oscar

I haven't seen that movie, but I'll buy that bit of advice. In fact, my grandfather gave me a similar rule to live by.

"My boy," said he. "Whether he does it often or rarely, a man should know how to grill a steak."

And then he taught me how.
