Favorite Woody Allen Line

After viewing Sleeper on TCM last night I tried to arrive at my favorite Woody Quote.

I have loved Woody for years but this was challenged due to his "personal problems". His latest film, Midnight In Paris has restored my faith in him. While I still have issues with his personal life, there's no denying his talent. Like with many brilliant artists, I believe it's not necessary to agree with every detail of their personal lives to appreciate their art.

Love Midnight, but also adore Annie Hall and Manhattan. Dang he made some great movies.

I used to really like his earlier movies. However, the quality started going down and his personal life got just a bit too creepy for me. My favs were Play it Again, Sam and Annie Hall.

There are too many outstanding quotes to choose just one. Among my favorites:

More than any time in history mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction. Let us pray that we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

Love Annie Hall.

I don't know if it is my favorite but it is the most memorable.

I feel that life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That's the two categories. The horrible are like, I don't know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life. It's amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you're miserable, because that's very lucky, to be miserable.

Another flawed person. Very flawed. Doesn't mean we can't appreciate his art. Important to remember him realistically. The good, the bad and the ugly. Lots of all three with him. I've had serious issues with his personal life for sure. Who wouldn't?

Paraphrasing:

Wife: well maybe I can't get pregnant because you've damaged yourself from excessive masturbation!

Woody: What? Now you're knocking my hobbies?
