Movie Quote of the Day – About Schmidt, 2002 (dir. Alexander Payne)


Sister Nadine Gautier: Dear Mr. Warren Schmidt, My name is sister Nadine Gautier, of the order of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. I work in a small village near the town of Embeya in Tanzania. One of the children I care for is little Ndugu Umbu, the boy you sponsor. Ndugu is a very intelligent boy and very loving. He is an orphan. Recently he needed medical attention for an infection of the eye. But he is better now. He loves to eat melon and he loves to paint. Ndugu and I want you to know that he receives all of your letters. He hopes that you are happy in your life and healthy. He thinks of you everyday. And he wants very much your happiness. Ndugu is only 6 years old and cannot read or write. But, he has made for you a painting. He hopes that you will like his painting. Yours sincerely, Sister Nadine Gautier.
