Schindler: There’s no way I could have known this before, but there was always something missing. In every business I tried, I can see now it wasn’t me that had failed. Something was missing. Even if I’d known what it was, there’s nothing I could have done about it, because you can’t create this thing. And it makes all the difference in the world between success and failure.

Emilie: Luck?

Schindler: War.

Schindler’s List (1993)

Valmont: Now, yes or no? It is up to you, of course. I will merely confine myself to remarking that a “no” will be regarded as a declaration of war. A single word is all that is required.

Merteuil: All right.

Merteuil: War.

Dangerous Liaisons (1988)

How do you prefer your “War”?

  • With Liam Neeson’s suave amorality in Schindler’s List
  • With Glenn Close’s vindictive divadom in Dangerous Liaisons

Mention your pick in the comments below!

2 Comments to ““War.””

  1. I wish I could write random posts like this!

    Surprisingly enough, I’ll go with Neeson because this diva-ish behavior is a little predictable and not very smart, since we know how it ended.
    Neeson on the other hand reminds us that business is business and it doesn’t have room for morality.

  2. Um, yeah, I just noticed it wasn’t a random post but a part of a blogathon that I’m now going to explore!
