Hi Everyone! Through the years movies have perhaps played a role in our lives - there is a power in words, story lines, images -- a way of learning that goes back to even childhood. Still recall BAMBI and the lesson being taught to one of the characters, 'Thumper': "If you can't say anything nice, then don't say nothing at all." Today I have brought some movie quotes to the Sandbox -- meanings behind the words. Wishing everyone a beautiful Sunday. As I was writing this post, I did think of each of you and wondered what lines and quotes of a movie stays with you? I mentioned a few posts back that I was late to seeing the movie, 'Saving Private Ryan.' Perhaps most of us remember the words on the bridge and at the cemetary..... Jane
