The Words of Life



The scene above is probably my favorite scene from the Clint Eastwood movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales" and is one of my favorite movie scenes of all time.

The message from the scene is simple but compelling. We can either fight each other or recognize that we each have the right to live. The message is also couched in humanistic language rather than invoking a god. The Indian chief Ten Bears tells Josey Wales that the "iron", or truth, "must come from men." Enjoy.

Great movie, and great fucking scene.

Too bad that Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer had to have been born, huh?
