Quotation by A.I. Bezzerides

This is just a job like any other job. I do it the best I can. It's never enough but I do it. When I go home, I don't take this stuff with me, I leave it outside. But you, the way you carry it around inside, you must like it! Maybe you think that makes you a good cop. The way you're going you won't be good to anybody! Not even yourself! Somebody had to tell you. To get anything out of this life, you got to put something in it. From the heart!
A.I. (Albert Isaac) Bezzerides, U.S. screenwriter, and Nicholas Ray. Officer Bob Dailey (Charles Kemper), On Dangerous Ground (1952).

Based on an adaptation of Gerald Butler s novel "Mad With Much Heart" by Bezzerides and Nicholas Ray (1911-1979).
