deeds

They [Young People] have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things -- and that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning -- all their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything -- they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The effects of our actions may be postponed but they are never lost. There is an inevitable reward for good deeds and an inescapable punishment for bad. Meditate upon this truth, and seek always to earn good wages from Destiny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The explanation of the propensity of the English people to portrait painting is to be found in their relish for a Fact. Let a man do the grandest things, fight the greatest battles, or be distinguished by the most brilliant personal heroism, yet the English people would prefer his portrait to a painting of the great deed. The likeness they can judge of; his existence is a Fact. But the truth of the picture of his deeds they cannot judge of, for they have no imagination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Happy is the man whose deeds are greater than his learningMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What a wonderful faculty is memory! -- the most mysterious and inexplicable in the great riddle of life; that plastic tablet on which the Almighty registers with unerring fidelity the records of being, making it the depository of all our words, thoughts and deeds -- this faithful witness against us for good or evil.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I would give all the wealth of the world, and all the deeds of all the heroes, for one true vision.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Though it is possible to utter words only with the intention to fulfill the will of God, it is very difficult not to think about the impression which they will produce on men and not to form them accordingly. But deeds you can do quite unknown to men, only for God. And such deeds are the greatest joy that a man can experience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The ideal life is in our blood and never will be still.

[from extended version]
Pippin: [to himself] *WHAT* were you thinking, Peregrin Took? What service could a hobbit offer such a great lord of men?
Faramir: [approaching] It was well done. Generous deeds should not be checked by cold council. So, you are to join the tower guard?
Pippin: [sheepishly] I didn't think they would find any livery that would fit me.
Faramir: It once belonged to a boy of the citadel. A very foolish one; who spent more time slaying dragons than attending to his studies.
Pippin: This was yours?
Faramir: Yes. My father had it made for me.
Pippin: Well, I'm taller than you were then. Though I'm not likely to grow anymore... except sideways.
[both laugh]More [03/21/2007 12:03:00]
Masonic Governor: You stand before your peers, masons and doctors both.
Sir William Gull: I have no peers present here.
Masonic Governor: What?
Sir William Gull: No man amongst you is fit to judge... the mighty art that I have wrought. Your rituals are empty oaths you neither understand nor live by. The Great Architect speaks to me. He is the balance where my deeds are weighed and judged... not you.More [04/12/2007 12:04:00]
Dalton Russell: I'm no martyr. I did it for the money. But it's not worth much if you can't face yourself in the mirror. Respect is the ultimate currency. I was stealing from a man who traded his away for a few dollars. And then he tried to wash away his guilt. Drown it in a lifetime of good deeds and a sea of respectability. It almost worked, too. But inevitably, the further you run from your sins, the more exhausted you are when they catch up to you. And they do. Certain. It will not fail.More [04/23/2007 12:04:00]

Lancelot: [voiceover] And as for the knights who gave their lives, their deaths were cause for neither mourning nor sadness. For they will live forever, their names and deeds handed down from father to son, mother to daughter, in the legends of King Arthur and his knights.More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]
Arthur: Deeds themselves are useless unless they are for some higher purpose.More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]
Hodge: Ah, so it's a test you're looking for. We don't do tests!
Tyrian: No, of course not. They never do tests. Not many real deeds either. Oh, conversation with your grandmother's shade in a darkened room, the odd love potion or two, but comes a doubter, why, then it's the wrong day, the planets are not in line, the entrails are not favorable, "we don't do tests"!More [09/28/2007 12:09:00]
Gen. 'Stonewall' Jackson: In the Army of the Shenandoah, you were the First Brigade! In the Army of the Potomac you were the First Brigade!

You are the First Brigade in the affections of your general, and I hope by your future deeds and bearing you will be handed down the posterity as the First Brigade in this our Second War of Independence. God Speed!More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]

Sam Deeds: He ever accept cash for a favor?
Otis Payne: I don't recall a prisoner ever died in your daddy's custody. I don't recall a man in this county - black, white, Mexican - who'd hesitate for a minute to call on Buddy Deeds to solve a problem. More than that, I wouldn't care to say.More [08/08/2008 12:08:00]
Fenton: Buddy Deeds said a thing, he damn well backed it up. Never be another one like him. You know, that boy of his can't cut it. You ask me, he's all hat and no cattle.More [08/08/2008 12:08:00]
Sheriff Sam Deeds: Mrs. Bledsoe?
Minnie Bledsoe: That's me.
Sheriff Sam Deeds: I'm Sheriff Deeds.

Sheriff Sam Deeds: Yeah, that's the story of my life.More [08/08/2008 12:08:00]
Louise "Babe" Bennett:
[Taking Mr. Deeds to see Grant's Tomb] To most people, it's an awful let-down... To most people, it's a washout.



Longfellow Deeds:
Well, that depends on what they see.



Louise "Babe" Bennett:
Now what do you see?



Longfellow Deeds:
Me? Oh I see a small Ohio farm boy becoming a great soldier. I see thousands of marching men. I see General Lee with a broken heart surrendering. And I can see the beginning of a new nation, like Abraham Lincoln said. And I can see that Ohio boy being inaugurated as President. Things like that can only happen in a country like America.

[reading Babe's first column about Deeds]



MacWade:
"At two o'clock this morning, Mr. Deeds held up traffic while he fed a bagful of doughnuts to a horse. When asked why he was doing it, he replied, 'I just wanted to see how many doughnuts this horse would eat before he asked for a cup of coffee.'"

The Prosecutor:
Never, never in the history of jurisprudence have such terrifying deeds been brought to light. Gentlemen of the jury, you have before you a cruel and cynical monster. Look at him!


[all heads turn to face Verdoux, who turns around himself to look behind.]



The Prosecutor:
Observe him, gentlemen. This man, who has brains, if he had decent instincts, could have made an honest living. And yet, he preferred to rob and murder unsuspecting women. In fact, he made a business of it. I do not ask for vengeance, but for the protection of society. For this mass killer, I demand the extreme penalty: that he be put to death on the guillotine. The State rests its case.



Judge:
Monsieur Verdoux, you have been found guilty. Have you anything to say before sentence is passed upon you?



Henri Verdoux:
Oui, monsieur, I have. However remiss the prosecutor has been in complimenting me, he at least admits that I have brains. Thank you, Monsieur, I have. And for thirty-five years I used them honestly. After that, nobody wanted them. So I was forced to go into business for myself. As for being a mass killer, does not the world encourage it? Is it not building weapons of destruction for the sole purpose of mass killing? Has it not blown unsuspecting women and little children to pieces? And done it very scientifically? As a mass killer, I am an amateur by comparison. However, I do not wish to lose my temper, because very shortly, I shall lose my head. Nevertheless, upon leaving this spark of earthly existence, I have this to say: I shall see you all...very soon...very soon.

Amos Hinchley:
[giving eulogy for John F. Black] And so, my friends, we find ourselves gathered around the bier of Mrs.... er... Mr.... You Know Whom... this litter of sorrow, this cairn, this cromlech, this dread dochma, this gart, this mastaba, this sorrowing tope, this unhappy tumulus, this, this... what is the word?... this... er, coffin! Never could think of that word. Requiescat in Pace, Mr.... um... Mr.... the memory of your good deeds will not perish with your untimely sepulture.

Othello:
I pray you, in your letters; when you shall these unlucky deeds relate, speak of them as they are. Nothing extenuate, nor set down aught in malice. Then must you speak of one that lov'd not wisely but too well.

Mowgli:
[to the unconscious Baloo] Baloo, get up. Oh, please get up.



Bagheera:
Mowgli, try to understand.



Mowgli:
Bagheera, what's the matter with him?



Bagheera:
You've got to be brave, like Baloo was.



Mowgli:
You... you don't mean... Oh, no. Baloo.



Bagheera:
Now, now. I know how you feel. But you must remember, Mowgli. Greater love hath no one than he who lays down his life for his friend.


[At this point, Baloo starts waking up, unbeknownst to Bagheera and Mowgli]



Bagheera:
Whenever great deeds are remembered in this jungle, one name will stand above all others: our friend, Baloo the bear.



Baloo:
[sniffing] He's cracking me up.



Bagheera:
The memory of Baloo's sacrifice and bravery will forever be engraved on our saddened hearts.



Baloo:
Beautiful.



Bagheera:
This spot where Baloo fell will always be a hallowed place in the jungle, for there lies one of nature's noblest creatures.



Baloo:
I wish my mother could have heard this.



Bagheera:
It's best we leave now. Come along, Man Cub.



Baloo:
Hey, don't stop now, Baggy. You're doing great! There's more, lots more!



Bagheera:
[Angry] Why, you big fraud! You-you-you four-flusher! I-I'm fed up!...

Merchant Banker:
[on phone] Hello? Ah, Mr. Victim, yes, I'm glad to say I've got the go-ahead to lend you the money you require, yes. Uh, we will, of course, need as security the deeds to your house, of your aunt's house, of your second cousin's house, of your wife's parents' house, and of your granny's bungalow - and we will, in addition, need a controlling interest in your new company, uh, unrestricted access to your private bank account, the deposit into our vaults of your three children as hostages, and a full legal indemnity against any acts of embezzlement carried out by any members of our staff during the normal course of their duties.

The Oracle of all knowledge:
[the Keeper has summoned the Oracle of All Knowledge from it's well and before Sinbad and his comrades, surrounded by licking flames, appears an image of a face like a bearded man with horns like a ram growing from it's head, a thick mane of hair and a demonic smile that shows it's rotting teeth] Two tablets brought forth to the light, yet a third remains from sight. A final place must still be found, a place that lies deep below the ground...



Sinbad:
It speaks in riddles!



The Oracle of all knowledge:
No race is lost until in fact it's won, and close behind you comes the black and evil son spawned by the devil, suckled upon black milk of human form... Clad in robes of silk... Destiny... Destiny... Destiny is invisible and yet visible, and men may try to hide yet it's waters mark it clearly like a rainbow in the sky. Destiny is a place where both good and evil wait, and yet their very equality that bates their power, for it is the deeds of weak and mortal men that may tip the scales one way or the other, and then the WORLD shall KNOW and YOU shall KNOW which way the fates have chose you shall GO... GO... GO now... Go north...



Sinbad:
Go north?



The Oracle of all knowledge:
North to barren lands of pagan places... The pagan barrens... Before a goddess cast with many limbs and death to all intruders is their whim. In that sacred place HID from the eyes of man is the third gold tablet that completes the plan... GO now... GO now... Go north... Go north...


[the voice and image of the Oracle fade away and returns in a burst of light into the well below it]

Snow White Charming:
Mother, you shouldn't be doing bad deeds this close to Christmas, you want to be on your best behavior for Santa.



Queen Lillian White:
Santa? You two still believe in Santa? Oh this is rich.



Snow White Charming:
Why shouldn't we believe in him?



Eric Charming:
Hasn't he come every year on Christmas Eve?



Queen Lillian White:
This is not the Enchanted Forrest, this is the Twentieth Century. There are no wishing wells, no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and certainly no Santa Claus.



Sally Miller:
[knocks on the door, then enters] Hi, you guys want to come to the mall to see Santa Claus?
