To Jim – Thanks For Your Insights

This reminded me of this move of Peter sellers

He offers simplistic responses to the most difficult questions, such as:
First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.
Some of the amusing remarks he makes, almost Yogi Berra-isms, hint that he might actually be insightful:
  • On looking out a car window: "This is just like television, only you can see much further."
  • On planting seeds: "Spring is the time for planting."
  • On economics (actually on gardening): "In a garden, growth has its long as the roots are not severed, all is well, and all will be well in the garden."
  • On watching TV (his most famous line, misinterpreted by Eve as an invitation to sexually stimulate herself while he watches her): "I like to watch (TV)."
  • On death: "I've seen this before. It happens to old people."
The last line of the film is a quote from the late Mr. Rand, read at his funeral: "Life is a state of mind."
