Today's quote is from Woody Allen -
"I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens."
I'm a big fan of Woody Allen. My favorite movie of his is the classic comedy Annie Hall from 1977. It is one of the few comedies to have won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Woody also received the Oscar for Best Director and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen. Diane Keaton won the Best Actress Oscar for her wonderful performance. Evidently Woody wrote the part of Annie for Diane. Her real name is Diane Hall.
Another favorite Woody Allen movie is the lesser known film Love and Death from 1975. It's a satirical take on Russian epic novels. I remember seeing it in the theater when I was in high school and recently watched it on DVD. It's really funny and unique. Here is a funny quote from the film -
"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness."
I recommend both Annie Hall and Love and Death highly if you haven't seen them.
