One of the jolly good things about life is that, in most occassions, one can re-start anew. How lucky of us!! WELCOME THE NEW ONES AND 'RE-WELCOME' THE OLD LADS AND LADIES


1.- (My favourite)
(Victor Fleming, 1939)

Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'hara
"As God is my witness, as God is my witness, they're not going to lick me! I'm going to live through this, and when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again - no, nor any of my folks! If I have to lie, steal, cheat, or kill, as God is my witness,
I'll never be hungry again."

'A Dios pongo por testigo que no podrán derribarme. Sobreviviré, y cuando todo haya pasado, nunca volveré a pasar hambre, ni yo ni ninguno de los míos. Aunque tenga que mentir, robar, mendigar o matar ¡a Dios pongo por testigo que jamás volveré a pasar hambre!

"Casablanca", (Casablanca, 1942), Michael Curtiz;

'Tócala una vez Sam', 'Louie, creo que éste es el principio de una gran amistad', 'De todos los cafés del mundo, tuvo que elgir el mío' y 'Después de todo, siempre nos quedará París'
"Play it again Sam",  (Play it Once..., play it, Sam)

Ilsa: Play it once, Sam. For old times' sake.
Sam: I don't know what you mean, Miss Ilsa.
Ilsa: Play it, Sam. Play "As Time Goes By."
Sam: Oh, I can't remember it, Miss Ilsa. I'm a little rusty on it.
Ilsa: I'll hum it for you.
Da-dy-da-dy-da-dum, da-dy-da-dee-da-dum...
Ilsa: Sing it, Sam.
Sam: You must remember this A kiss is still a kiss. A sigh is just a sigh. The fundamental things apply As time goes by. And when two lovers woo, they still say, "I love you" On that you can rely No matter what the future brings. As time goes by...
Rick: Sam, I thought I told you never to play...

"Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks in to mine" Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart)  and "We'll always have Paris", "Here´s looking at you kid"
"Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship" (Casablanca ending),

(Louis Armstrong)
You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by
And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you"
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate
Woman needs man
And man must have his maid
That no one can deny
it's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by...

"NOBODY'S PERFECT" - 'NADIE ES PERFECTO' Some like it hot' o 'Con faldas y a lo loco (1959. Billy Wilder)


Osgood: I called Mama. She was so happy she cried! She wants you to have her wedding gown. It's white lace.
Daphne: Yeah, Osgood. I can't get married in your mother's dress. Ha ha. That-she and I, we are not built the same way.
Osgood: We can have it altered.
Daphne: Oh no you don't! Osgood, I'm gonna level with you. We can't get married at all.
Osgood: Why not?
Daphne: Well, in the first place, I'm not a natural blonde.
Osgood: Doesn't matter.
Daphne: I smoke! I smoke all the time!
Osgood: I don't care.
Daphne: Well, I have a terrible past. For three years now, I've been living with a saxophone player.
Osgood: I forgive you.
Daphne: [Tragically] I can never have children!
Osgood: We can adopt some.
Daphne/Jerry: But you don't understand, Osgood! [Whips off his wig, exasperated, and changes to a manly voice.] Uhhh, I'm a man!
Osgood: [Looks at him then turns back, unperturbed]: Well, nobody's perfect!!!

The 10 Commandments - God's Revelation in the Old Testament

The 10 Commandments are found in the Bible's Old Testament at Exodus, Chapter 20.
They were given directly by God to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai after He had delivered them from slavery in Egypt:

"And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God…

ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'

TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'

THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'

FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'

FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'

SIX: 'You shall not murder.'

SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'

EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'

NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'

TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'
