  • Quotes

    • Laura: (about Nellie and Willie) They said awful things, dumb things. They said you couldn't get a decent job, and that all you could do was clean up after the animals, and that you smelled bad.
      Charles: Well, they were right two out of three. I do clean the stables. I come home from working all day, and I don't exactly smell like a bottle of lemon verbena, now do I? Well, do I?
      Laura: (smiles) No.
      Charles: All right, then. Now, as for a decent job, that's a whole other thing. Any job a man can get to make his way in this world is a decent job, as long as he works hard and does his best at it. You know, God didn't put sweat in a man's body for no reason. He put it there so he could work hard, cleanse himself, and feel proud. And don't you ever forget that. Hard-working folks only smell bad to folks who have nothing better to do than stick their noses in the air. I think you and I both know who they are.
