A movie quote

Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars.
I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it.
Joker, from The Dark Knight

Hi Thinker,
I really liked that sentence. It struck me when I saw the movie, I could really imagine the dogs, barking, running, not knowing exactly what it is that makes them behave the way they do. It's true for us too, sometimes.

Yes, Joker has a few quite interesting quotes, i also liked this one: "Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push."
I usually get sceptical about blockbuster movies but this one was great, thanks again for your recommendation.

Yes, I really liked the movie, and I am glad you liked it! I seldom like blockbuster that much.
I found the "gravity" quote very powerful too. And listened carefully to the dialogues about power and justice, something like "you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the vilain".

In our previous chat about this movie you said that it is about enduring. Now when i saw it i totally agree with you, it shows how hard it is to preserve persistence, to keep fighting and believing.
And I would say that dreams and values of our lives are real and true only if they can endure.
