Movie Quote of the Day – The Straight Story, 1999 (dir. David Lynch)

Alvin Straight: You don’t think about getting old when you’re young. . .you shouldn’t.
Cyclist #1: Must be something good about gettin’ old?
Alvin Straight: Well I can’t imagine anything good about being blind and lame at the same time but, still at my age I’ve seen about all that life has to dish out. I know to separate the wheat from the chaff, and let the small stuff fall away.
Cyclist #2: That’s cool man. So, uh, what’s the worst part about being old, Alvin?
Alvin Straight: Well, the worst part of being old is rememberin’ when you was young.
