from the movie "enemy at the gates"
man will always be man. there is no new man. we tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there'd be nothing to envy your neighbor. but there's always something to envy. a smile... a friendship. something you don't have and want to appropriate. in this world- even a soviet one- there will always be rich and poor. rich in gifts... poor in gifts. rich in love... poor in love
