A River Runs Through It quotes

Rev. Maclean: Each one of here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

Norman: The world is full of bastards, the number increasing rapidly the further one gets from Missoula, Montana.

Older Norman: (narrating) It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us.

Paul: Hello, Jess.
Jesse: Hey, Paul.
Paul: How's your brother?
Jesse: You both left him alone.
Paul: Well, I'm sorry about that. That was my fault.
Jesse: Well, you're not forgiven.
Paul: Was Norman forgiven?
Jesse: Norman's not funny.

Older Norman: (narrating) They were Methodists, a denomination my father referred to as Baptists who could read.

Older Norman: (narrating) I am haunted by waters.

Older Norman: (narrating) That was the only time we fought. Perhaps we wondered after which one of us was tougher. But if boyhood questions aren't answered before a certain point, they can't be raised again. So we returned to being gracious to one another, as the church well suggested.
