The 90s: Arguably The Best Decade In History For Top 100 Movies




  


Lately I’ve been writing blogs, stopping around the 2/3 mark, and moving on to another subject. Sometimes I think writer’s muses catch viruses akin to the flu, or maybe a better comparison is a computer virus; everything works fine for a while and then, progressively, chaos ensues, and the mind wanders away, confused.


Nonsensical comparisons aside, and explanations notwithstanding, this has b

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
“There is something in natural affection which will lead it on to eternal love more easily than natural appetite could be led on. But there's also something in it which makes it easier to stop at the natural level and mistake it for the heavenly. Brass is mistaken for gold more easily than clay is. And if it finally refuses conversion its corruption will be worse than the corruption of what ye call the lower passions. It is a stronger angel, and therefor, when it falls, a fiercer devil.”

“down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world.

“He will take no man’s money dishonestly and no man’s insolence without a due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him.

“The story is this man’s adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.”
Raymond Chandler

“Perserverance: Outlasting the most rash, pessimistic, cowardly naysayers; those first in line to deny us the dreams never tried. Ourselves.”
R. S. Guthrie

“The most profound, life-altering gift you can offer the Indie writer you love is to TELL as MANY avid readers as you are able.”
R.S. Guthrie

“People want to believe in the good that exists within them. Many do what is expected of them, day upon day, until one of two things happens: they fail or they die young, before they can fail. It’s not a pretty truth, but, as imperfect beings, humankind was destined to miss the mark. At least occasionally.”
R.S. Guthrie, Dark Prairies
