A few years ago, I wrote down a line of dialog from a movie, so I could mull it over. I didn’t understand it then, and I still don’t, which is the reason the words are memorable.
“We never renounce; we replace.”
The line was Catherine Deneuve’s in Les Voleurs, a movie I can’t recommend, because the plot, though dismally forthright, was difficult to follow. There’s no need to hear the words in context to appreciate their meaning. Does anyone else hear something ominous?
