Movie Quote of the Day (‘A River Runs Through It,’ on a ‘Work of Art’—and Life)

Older Norman Maclean (narrating) (voice of Robert Redford): “My brother [Paul, played by Brad Pitt] stood before us, not on a bank of the Big Blackfoot River, but suspended above the earth, free from all its laws, like a work of art. And I knew just as surely and just as clearly, that life is not a work of art, and that the moment could not last.”—A River Runs Through It (1992), screenplay by Richard Friedenberg, based on the novella by Norman Maclean, directed by Robert Redford
