Living at the level of F-You!
I like to watch movies since I was little kid. Loved the creativity, taking new ideas, learn different concepts and above all awesome quotes.
Last weekend I’ve been watching a lot of tv, little bit of American Horror Story which was great first season, and little bit of movies such as The Gambler.
It wasn’t a great film or even good one, but it got one of the best lines I’ve heard lately. John Goodman telling Mark Wahlberg how to live on the level of Fuck You! …
And I quote “You get up two and a half million dollars, any asshole in the world knows what to do: you get a house with a 25 year roof, an indestructible Jap-economy shitbox, you put the rest into the system at three to five percent to pay your taxes and that’s your base, get me? That’s your fortress of fucking solitude.
That puts you, for the rest of your life, at a level of fuck you.
Somebody wants you to do something, fuck you. Boss pisses you off, fuck you! Own your house. Have a couple bucks in the bank. Don’t drink. That’s all I have to say to anybody on any social level.
A wise man’s life is based around fuck you.”
It is a very comfort level, a level were you don’t have to care about others.
