The Green Mile quotes,The Green Mile (1999)
Director: Frank Darabont,Stars: Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan, David Morse |
Mostly, I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world…
Your name is John Coffey?
Yes sir,boss. Like the drink, only not spelled the same.
I’m tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world every day. There’s too much of it. It’s like pieces of glass in my head all the time.
Paul Edgecomb: On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say? That it was my job? My job?
John Coffey: You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. I know you hurtin' and worryin', I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I'm tired, boss. Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?
John Coffey: He kill them wi' their love. Wi' their love fo' each other. That's how it is, every day, all over the world.
John Coffey: People hurt the ones they love. That's how it is all around the world.
Old Paul Edgecomb: We each owe a death – there are no exceptions – but, oh God, sometimes the Green Mile seems so long.
Paul Edgecomb: I've done some things in my life I'm not proud of, but this is the first time I've ever felt in real danger of hell.
