Quotation by Samuel Fuller

Why don't you take a good look at yourself! What do you see?! A doctor, a scientist, a businessman? You see a scar-faced ex- con, a two-bit safecracker, a petty thief who don't know when he made the big time. Where do you come off to blast her! No matter what she's been, what she's done. She's a giant! And you wanna know why? Well, I'll tell ya. Because she sees something in you worth saving. If only one tenth of one percent of all the good in her could rub off on you, you'd be a giant too! But you're a midget! In your head, in your heart, in your whole makeup! You're a midget!
Samuel Fuller (b. 1911), U.S. screenwriter. Sandy (Beatrice Kay), Underworld U.S.A., to Tolly Devlin, who has forsaken the love of his girlfriend, Cuddles (Delores Dorn) (1961).
