20 minnesvärda citat från Woody Allens filmer

Filmmakaren ger sin syn på sex, Gud och döden.
Brooklyn-födda filmmakaren Woody Allen har blivit känd för sin neurotiska syn på livet. Med sin kvicka hjärna och vassa tunga har han serverat mängder av oneliners. De flesta handlar om sex, Gud och döden - tre av Allens favoritämnen. 

Här är 20 av de minnesvärda citaten från Woody Allens filmer.

"What a world. It could be so wonderful if it wasn't for certain people."
Radio Days (1987)

 "Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television."

"Sex without love is an empty experience. But as far as empty experiences go, it's one of the best."

"Hey, don't knock masturbation. It's sex with someone I love." 
Annie Hall (1977)

"Sex is better than talk. Ask anybody in this bar. Talk is what you suffer through so you can get to sex."

“That sex was the most fun I've ever had without laughing.”

“You know a lot of geniuses, you know. You should meet some stupid people once in a while, you know. You could learn something.”

“Talent is luck. The important thing in life is courage.”
Manhattan (1979)

"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."
Annie Hall (1977)

“No, I don't think you're paranoid. I think you’re the opposite of paranoid. I think you walk around with the insane delusion that people like you.”

"There's an old joke... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says 'boy, the food at this place is really terrible'. The other one says 'yeah, I know, and such small portions'. Well, that's essentially how I feel about life."

"There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?"
