Ernst Haeckel #nice #famous #quotes

Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919)

” /> Haeckel, E. 1899. Riddle of the Universe at the Close of the Nineteenth Century.

Biography of Haeckel

Ernst Haeckel, much like Herbert Spencer, was always quotable, even when wrong. Although best known for the famous statement “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”, he also coined many words commonly used by biologists today, such as phylum. phylogeny. and ecology. On the other hand, Haeckel also stated that “politics is applied biology”, a quote used by Nazi propagandists. The Nazi party, rather unfortunately, used not only Haeckel’s quotes, but also Haeckel’s justifications for racism, nationalism and social darwinism.

Although trained as a physician, Haeckel abandoned his practice in 1859 after reading Darwin’s Origin of Species. Always suspicious of teleological and mystical explanation, Haeckel used the Origin as ammunition both to attack entrenched religious dogma and to build his own unique world view.

Hackel studied under Carl Gegenbauer in Jena for three years before becoming a professor of comparative anatomy in 1862. Between 1859 and 1866, he worked on many “invertebrate” groups, including radiolarians, poriferans (sponges) and annelids (segmented worms). He named nearly 150 new species of radiolarians during a trip to the Mediterranean. “Invertebrates” provided the fodder for most of his experimental work on development, leading to his “law of recapitulation”. Haeckel was also a free-thinker who went beyond biology, dabbling in anthropology, psychology, and cosmology. Haeckel’s speculative ideas and possible fudging of data, plus lack of empirical support for many of his ideas, tarnished his scientific credentials. However, he remained an immensely popular figure in Germany and was considered a hero by his countrymen.

Haeckel’s Scientific Thought

While materialists and utilitarians were shaking away traditional beliefs in England, German thinking was decidely more idealist and romantic during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The influential philosopher Goethe, who like Haeckel lived for a time in Jena, stressed the importance of the spirit as a creative, organizing force. German morphologists, influenced both by Goethe and by Hegel’s idealistic philosophy, believed in progressive perfection of both the universal plan of creation and the recapituation of that plan in the growth of the embryo.

Haeckel was influenced both by the German idealistic tradition and by the works of Darwin. After reading Origin of Species. Haeckel became one of the more prolific and vociferous supporters of evolution, but was less supportive of natural selection as the mechanism by which evolution occured. Hacekel was certainly an evolutionist but less so a Darwinian.

An extremely common misperception is that natural selection and evolution are the same thing. In fact, Haeckel is one of many thinkers who believed that all species were historical entities (lineages) but did not share Darwin’s enthusiasm for natural selection as the main mechanism for generating the diversity of the biological world. Haeckel instead believed that the environment acted directly on organisms, producing new races (a version of Lamarckism ). The survival of the races did depend on their interaction with the environment, a weak form of natural selection. Haeckel’s mechanism of change required that formation of new characters diagnostic of new species occured through progressive addition to the developmental trajectory. For example, most metazoans go through a developmental stage called a gastrula — a ball of cells with an infolding that later forms the gut. Haeckel thought that at one time an organism called a “gastraea” existed that looked much like the gastrula stage of ontogeny. This hypothesized ancestral metazoan gave rise to the rest of the multi-celled animals.

The “law of recapitulation” has been discredited since the beginning of the twentieth century. Experimental morphologists and biologists have shown that there is not a one-to-one correspondence between phylogeny and ontogeny. Although a strong form of recapitulation is not correct, phylogeny and ontogeny are intertwined, and many biologists are beginning to both explore and understand the basis for this connection.

World Environment Day 2015: Top ten inspirational quotes from famous personalities

World Environment Day is observed every year on 5 June Sanjay Kanojia/AFP/Getty Images

World Environment Day is observed every year on 5 June – a day designated by the UN to raise awareness of environmental issues.

The theme of World Environment Day 2015 is ‘Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.’

Italy will serve as the host of the 2015 event, and the celebrations will be organised at the Milan Expo.

“It is an honour for Italy to work together with UNEP in leading the global celebrations for World Environment Day 2015,” Italian Minister for the Environment Gian Luca Galletti said. “This year, WED will focus on the need to respect the carrying capacity of the planet and to manage natural resources efficiently—all aspects that are of utmost importance if we really want to ensure prosperity and wellbeing globally.”

On the occasion, IBTimes UK has picked up the top ten quotes to mark World Environment Day 2015.

  • “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.” – Mahatma Gandhi
  • “The environment is everything that isn’t me.” – Albert Einstein
  • “The earth is like a beautiful bride who needs no manmade jewels to heighten her loveliness.” – Khalil Gibran
  • “God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.” – John Muir
  • “Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off his left.” – Aldo Leopold
  • “I can find God in nature, in animals, in birds and the environment.” – Pat Buckley
  • “We must return to nature and nature’s god.” – Luther Burbank
  • “If we do not permit the earth to produce beauty and joy, it will in the end not produce food, either.” – Joseph Wood Krutch
  • “Birds are indicators of the environment. If they are in trouble, we know we’ll soon be in trouble.” – Roger Tory Peterson
  • “We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.” – Margaret Mead

Janis. You dirty little liar!

Cady. I’m sorry, I can explain.

Janis. Explain how you forgot to invite us to your party?

Damian. Janis, I cannot stop this car. I have a curfew.

Cady. You know I couldn’t invite you. I had to pretend to be plastic.

Janis. Hey, buddy, you’re not pretending anymore. You’re plastic. Cold, shiny, hard plastic.

Damian. Curfew, 1:00 AM, it is now 1:10.

Janis. Did you have an awesome time? Did you drink awesome shooters, listen to awesome music, and then just sit around and soak up each others awesomeness?

Cady. You know what? You’re the one who made me like this so you could use me for your 8th grade revenge!

Janis. God! See, at least me and Regina George know we’re mean! You try to act so innocent like, “Oh, I use to live in Africa with all the little birdies, and the little monkeys!”

Cady. You know what! It’s not my fault you’re like, in love with me, or something!

Janis. See? That’s the thing with you plastics. You think everybody is in love with you when actually, everybody HATES you! Like, Aaron Samuels, for example, he broke up with Regina and guess what? He still doesn’t want you! So why are you still messing with Regina, Cady? I’ll tell you why, because you are a mean girl! You’re a bitch! Here. You can have this. It won a prize.

[ Damian drives away with Janis, yelling out the window ]

Damian. And I want my pink shirt back! I want my pink shirt back!

[ Mr. Duvall is introducing Cady to the class ]

Mr. Duvall. Her name is Cady. Cady Heron. Where are you, Cady?

Cady. That’s me. It’s pronounced like Katie.

Mr. Duvall. My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Janis. [ to the female student body ] Okay, yeah. I’ve got an apology. So, I have this friend who is a new student this year. And I convinced her that it would be fun to mess up Regina George’s life. So I had her pretend to be friends with Regina, and then she would come to my house after and we would just laugh about all the dumb stuff Regina said. And we gave these candy bar things that would make her gain weight, and then we turned her best friends against her. And then. Oh yeah, Cady – you know my friend Cady? She made out with her boyfriend, and we convinced him to break up with her. Oh, God, and we gave her foot cream instead of face wash.

Janis. God! I am so sorry Regina. Really, I don’t know why I did this. I guess it’s probably because I’ve got a big *lesbian* crush on you! Suck on *that*! AY-YI-YI-YI-YI-YI!

Kevin Gnapoor. [ rapping ] Yo, yo, yo. All you sucka MC’s ain’t got nothing on me, from my grades to my rhymes you can’t touch Kevin G. I’m a mathlete, so nerd is inferred but forget what you heard I’m like James Bond the third. Shaken not stirred I’m Kevin Gnapoor. The G’s silent when I sneak in your door. I make love to your woman on the bathroom floor. I don’t play like Shaggy, you’ll know it was me, cuz the next time you see her she’ll be like “ohhh Kevin G.”

Damian. She always looks fierce. She always wins Spring Fling Queen.

Damian. I care. Every year the seniors through this dance for the underclassmen called the Spring Fling. And whosoever is elected King and Queen automatically become head of the Student Activities Committee and since I am an active member of the Student Activities Committee, I would safely say, I care.

Janis. Wow, Damian, you’ve truely out-gayed yourself.

Cady. [ voiceover ] The weird thing about hanging out with Regina was that I could hate her, and at the same time, I still wanted her to like me.

Regina. [ to Cady ] Okay. you have really good eyebrows.

Regina. [ pushing Gretchen ] Move.

Cady. [ voiceover ] Same with Gretchen: the meaner Regina was to her, the more Gretchen tried to win Regina back. She knew it was better to be in the plastics, hating life, than to not be in at all. Because being with the plastics was like being famous. people looked at you all the time and everybody just knew stuff about you.

Girl. That knew girl moved here from Africa.

Girl. I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip flops, so I bought army pants and flip flops.

Boy. That Cady girl is hot. she might even be hotter than Regina George.

Mr. Duvall. I hear Regina George is dating Aaron Samuels again. The 2 were seen canoodling at Chris Isen’s halloween party. they’ve been inseparable ever since.

Gretchen. [ in her English class essay, after being humiliated by Regina ] Why should Caesar get to stomp around like a giant, while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? What’s so great about Caesar? Hm? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar. Brutus is just as smart as Caesar. People totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar. And when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody, huh? Because that’s not what Rome is about. We should totally just *stab* Caesar!

Cady. [ Voiceover ] Gretchen Wieners had cracked.

Cady. [ after seeing Regina in mirror ] Regina, wow, you look really beautiful.

Regina. I’m wearing a spinal halo.

Cady. Look, I’m really sorry about the bus. I feel like it’s all my fault.

Regina. Stopping making this about you. I’m the one that got hit by the bus.

Cady. I’m really sorry about all the other stuff too.

Regina. Okay, I’m going to forgive you because I’m a very Zen person. and I’m on a lot of pain medication right now.

Regina. You know Aaron really does like you. He’s always talking about how unusual you are and it really pissed me off. Like this one time, I got this really expensive doll house from Germany, but I never played with it. So my mom wanted to give it to my cousin. But even though I didn’t want it.

Cady. You begged your mom to let you keep it?

Regina. No. I threw it down the stairs.

Regina. I didn’t want anyone else to have it. But that’s just me.

Mrs. George. Regina! There about to announce the queen.

Regina. Can you believe my f-ing mom is here?

Regina. [ Cady and the Plastics are getting into their start positions for Jingle Bell Rock ] Uh, Gretchen? Switch sides with Cady.

Gretchen. But I’m always on your left!

Regina. Well, that was when we were three of us, and now the tallest go in the middle.

Gretchen. But the whole dance will be backwards! I’m always on your left!

Regina. And right now, you’re getting on my last nerve! Switch!

[ Gretchen reluctantly swaps sides with Cady in the positions ]

Gretchen. I mean no offense, but how could she send you a candy cane? She doesn’t even like you that much. Maybe she feels weird around me because I’m the only person who knows about her nose job. Oh my god, pretend you didn’t hear that.

Girl in wheelchair. I don’t hate you because you’re fat. You’re fat because I hate you.

Regina. [ On the phone ] I know your secret.

Cady. [ to herself ] Oh god, busted! Just start apologizing and crying. No, play it cool.

Cady. Secret? What are you saying about?

Regina. Gretchen told me you like Aaron Samuels. I mean, I don’t care, do whatever you want, but lemme just tell you something about Aaron, all he cares about is school and his mom and his friends.

Regina. But if you like him, whatever. I mean I could talk to him for you if you want.

Cady. Really? You would do that? I mean nothing embarassing though, right?

Regina. Oh no, trust me, I know exactly how to play it. But wait, aren’t you *so* mad at Gretchen for telling me? Because if you are you can tell me, it was a really bitchy thing for her to do.

Cady. Yeah, it was pretty bitchy, but I’m not mad, I mean I guess she just likes the attention.

Regina. See, Gretch? I told you she’s not mad at you!

Gretchen. [ Suddenly appears in the same phone conversation ] I can’t believe you think I like attention!

Regina. [ to both Cady and Gretchen ] Ok, love you, see you tomorrow!

Life Before Death – Consultations with Death – The Last Word – Quotable Death Quotes

Posted on by 0 comment

While so many people avoid talking about death and dying like it is the plague, some of our finest philosophers, poets and scholars have waxed lyrical about it. From cynical to profound, reflective to encouraging, inspiring to downright funny… they try and make sense of the eventuality we all have to face.

“Live as you would have wished to live when you are dying.”

– Christian Furchtegott Gellert, German poet (1715 – 1769).

“You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”

— Dame Cicely Saunders, nurse, physician and writer, and founder of hospice movement (1918 – 2005).

“The nearer she came to death, the more, by some perversity of nature, did she enjoy living.”

– Ellen Glasgow, American novelist (1873-1945).

“Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.”

– Henry Van Dyke, American short-story writer, poet and essayist (1852 – 1933).

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.”

– Isaac Asimov, American science fiction novelist scholar (1920 – 1992).

“Death helps us to see what is worth trusting and loving and what is a waste of time.”

— J. Neville Ward, Methodist minister (1915 – 1992).

“The question is not whether we will die, but how we will live.”

– Dr Joan Borysenko, medical scientist and psychologist (b.1945).

“As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well used brings happy death.”

– Leonardo da Vinci, Italian polymath (1452 – 1519).

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

— Mahatma Gandhi, Indian philosopher (1869 – 1948).

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”

– Mark Twain, American novelist and humorist (1835 – 1910).

“Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others.”

– Morrie Schwartz, American educator and writer (1916 – 1995).

“When you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”

– Morrie Schwartz, American educator and writer (1916 – 1995).

“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”

– Norman Cousins, American political journalist, author, professor, and world peace advocate (1915 -1990).

“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.”

– Pope Paul VI, Italian Pope (1897 – 1978).

“. almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

– Steve Jobs, American Entrepreneur, Apple co-Founder (b.1955).

“Every man dies – Not every man really lives.”

– William Ross Wallace, American poet (1819 – 1881).

“Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

– William Saroyan, American writer (1908 – 1981)

“I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”

– Woody Allen, American screenwriter, film director, actor, comedian, writer, musician and playwright (b.1935).

“For mortals vanished from the day’s sweet light. I shed no tear; rather I mourn for those who day and night live in death’s fear.”

40 Mean Girls Quotes That Make Everyday Life Worth Living

Mean Girls

Quoting Mean Girls isn’t just a sport. It’s a national pastime. Mean Girls is how we make sense of the world, giving the chaos of the universe a recognizable template by which to understand it. More than any writer of her age (and I’m serious), Tina Fey has changed the ways that young people speak and interact with each other, introducing lovely new phrases into the vernacular like “fetch” and “that’s not a thing.” If I had to go an entire day without using a Fey-ism, I don’t know if I could do it. Tina Fey gives me life. She is my reason for being.

With that in mind, I compiled a list of my most-used Mean Girls quotes, in no particular order. This list is in no way an objective compilation, and you may find that your favorite quips vastly differ from mine. That’s one of the great things about it: it’s an endless source of humor to pull from, a veritable Bartlett’s for our age. Do you have favorites I didn’t include? (Hint: I purposefully left a couple favorites off, to give you something to feedback about.) Leave them in the comment section below.

1. “Get in loser. We’re going shopping.”

2. “Ex-boyfriends are off-limits to friends. That’s just, like, the rules of feminism.”

3. “Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by Regina George.”

4. “We only carry sizes one, three and five. You could try Sears.”

5. “That’s why her hair is so big. It’s full of secrets.”

6. “It s like I have ESPN or something. My breasts can always tell when it s going to rain. Well they can tell when it s raining.”

7. Janis: “We gotta crack Gretchen Wieners. We crack Gretchen, and then we crack the lock on Regina s whole dirty history.” Damian: “Say crack again.” Janis: “Crack.”

8. “But you re, like, really pretty… So you agree? You think you re really pretty?”

9. “I’m a mouse, duh.”

10. “Can I get you guys anything? Some snacks? A condom? Let me know! Oh, God love ya.”

11. “I don t hate you ‘cause your fat. You’re fat ‘cause I hate you!

12. “I wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school. I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy.”

13. “One time, she punched me in the face. It was awesome.”

14. “I want to lose three pounds.”

15. “I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.”

16. “ Cause she s a life ruiner. She ruins people s lives.”

17. “Regina George is not sweet! She s a scum-sucking road whore, she ruined my life!”

18. “If only you knew how mean she really is, you d know that I m not allowed to wear hoop earrings, right? Yeah, two years ago she told me hoops earrings were her thing, and I wasn t allowed to wear them anymore. And then for Hanukkah my parents got this pair of really expensive white gold hoops and I had to pretend like I didn t even like them. It was so sad.”

19. “On Wednesdays we wear pink.”

20. “Made out with a hot dog? Oh my God that was one time!”

21. “Did you see nipple? It only counts if you saw a nipple!”

22. “Why should Caesar get to stomp around like a giant, while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? What s so great about Caesar? Hmm? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar. Brutus is just as smart as Caesar. People totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar. And when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody, huh? Because that s not what Rome is about. We should totally just stab Caesar!”

23. “You smell like a baby prostitute.”

24. “I m sorry I called you a gap-toothed bitch. It s not your fault you re so gap-toothed.”

25. “I guess it s probably because I ve got a big lesbian crush on you! Suck on that.”

26. “Somebody wrote in that book that I m lying about being a virgin because I use super jumbo tampons, but I can t help it if I ve got a heavy flow and a wide set vagina!”

27. “Everyone in Africa can read Swedish.”

28. “Oh my God, Danny DeVito! I love your work!”

29. “I can’t go to Taco Bell. I’m on an all-carb diet. God, Karen, you are so stupid!”

30. “If you re from Africa, why are you white?”

31. “There are two kinds of evil people in this world. Those who do evil stuff and those who see evil stuff being done and don t try to stop it.”

32. “I m not a regular mom, I m a cool mom.”

33. Damian: “My Nana takes her wig off when she is drunk.” Ms. Norbury: “Your Nana and I have that in common.”

34. “Gretchen, I m sorry I laughed at you that time you got diarrhea at Barnes Nobles. And I m sorry for telling everyone about it. And I m sorry for repeating it now.”

35. “She doesn’t even go here!”

36. “I hear she does car commercials in Japan.”

37. “And on the third day, God created the Remington bolt-action rifle, so that Man could fight the dinosaurs. And the homosexuals.”

38. “Whatever, I m getting cheese fries.”

39. “I have this theory, that if you cut off all her hair she d look like a British man.”

40. “This is Susan from Planned Parenthood, I have her test results. If you could have her call me as soon as she can. It s urgent. Thank you.”

Касабланка (1942) – Quotes #brain #quotes #com

Posted on by 0 comment


Rick. Last night we said a great many things. You said I was to do the thinking for both of us. Well, I’ve done a lot of it since then, and it all adds up to one thing: you’re getting on that plane with Victor where you belong.

Rick. Now, you’ve got to listen to me! You have any idea what you’d have to look forward to if you stayed here? Nine chances out of ten, we’d both wind up in a concentration camp. Isn’t that true, Louie?

Captain Renault. I’m afraid Major Strasser would insist.

Ilsa. You’re saying this only to make me go.

Rick. I’m saying it because it’s true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You’re part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

Ilsa. But what about us?

Rick. We’ll always have Paris. We didn’t have, we, we lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.

Ilsa. When I said I would never leave you.

Rick. And you never will. But I’ve got a job to do, too. Where I’m going, you can’t follow. What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.

[ Ilsa lowers her head and begins to cry ]

[ Rick gently places his hand under her chin and raises it so their eyes meet ]

Rick. Here’s looking at you kid.

Ilsa. Play it once, Sam. For old times’ sake.

Sam. [ lying ] I don’t know what you mean, Miss Ilsa.

Ilsa. Play it, Sam. Play “As Time Goes By.”

Sam. [ lying ] 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.

[ Sam begins playing ]

Sam. [ singing ] 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-.

Rick. [ rushing up ] Sam, I thought I told you never to play-.

[ Sees Ilsa. Sam closes the piano and rolls it away ]

Rick. Don’t you sometimes wonder if it’s worth all this? I mean what you’re fighting for.

Victor Laszlo. You might as well question why we breathe. If we stop breathing, we’ll die. If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die.

Rick. Well, what of it? It’ll be out of its misery.

Victor Laszlo. You know how you sound, Mr. Blaine? Like a man who’s trying to convince himself of something he doesn’t believe in his heart.

Rick. [ Rick is drunk ] Uh-huh. I saved my first drink to have with you. Here.

[ passes her a drink ]

Ilsa. No. No, Rick, not tonight.

[ he pours a drink ]

Rick. Why did you have to come to Casablanca? There are other places.

Ilsa. I wouldn’t have come if I’d known that you were here. Believe me Rick, it’s true I didn’t know.

Rick. It’s funny about your voice, how it hasn’t changed. I can still hear it. “Richard, dear, I’ll go with you anyplace. We’ll get on a train together and never stop – “

Ilsa. Don’t, Rick! I can understand how you feel.

Rick. [ scoffs ] You understand how I feel. How long was it we had, honey?

Ilsa. [ on the verge of tears ] I didn’t count the days.

Rick. Well, I did. Every one of ’em. Mostly I remember the last one. The wow finish. A guy standing on a station platform in the rain with a comical look in his face because his insides have been kicked out.

Ilsa. Can I tell you a story, Rick?

Rick. Has it got a wow finish?

Ilsa. I don’t know the finish yet.

Rick. Well, go on. Tell it – maybe one will come to you as you go along.

Ilsa. It’s about a girl who had just come to Paris from her home in Oslo. At the house of some friends, she met a man about whom she’d heard her whole life. A very great and courageous man. He opened up for her a whole beautiful world full of knowledge and thoughts and ideals. Everything she knew or ever became was because of him. And she looked up to him and worshiped him. with a feeling she supposed was love.

Rick. [ bitterly ] Yes, it’s very pretty. I heard a story once – as a matter of fact, I’ve heard a lot of stories in my time. They went along with the sound of a tinny piano playing in the parlor downstairs. “Mister, I met a man once when I was a kid,” it always began.

Rick. Well, I guess neither one of our stories is very funny. Tell me, who was it you left me for? Was it Lazlo, or were there others in between or. aren’t you the kind that tells?

[ Ilsa tearfully and silently leaves. Rick’s face falls in his hands sadly, knowing that he’s said all the wrong things ]
