Quote by Stephen King
Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I'm not gonna hurt ya. I'm just going to bash your brains in.
This quote is a chilling and ominous line from Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of Stephen King's novel, "The Shining." It encapsulates the descent into madness of the character Jack Torrance, as he menacingly approaches his wife Wendy with a distorted mix of affection and violence. The quote juxtaposes the terms of endearment with a horrifying threat, showcasing the unsettling duality of Jack's mindset and foreshadowing the impending danger Wendy faces.
Do not let yourselves be discouraged or embittered by the smallness of the success you are likely to achieve in trying to make life better. You certainly would not be able, in a single generation, to create an earthly paradise. Who could expect that? But, if you make life ever so little better, you will have done splendidly, and your lives will have been worthwhile.
