Movie lines I love:



Little girls! I am in the business of putting old heads on young shoulders, and all my pupils are the crème de la crème. Give me a girl at an impressionable age and she is mine for life.


Deep in most of us is the potential for greatness or the potential to inspire greatness. 

-from The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969), Jean Brodie addressing her class


Sandy, please try to do as I say and not as I do. Remember, you are a child, Sandy, and far from your prime.
-spoken by Miss Brodie

A man with a wife and six children plus a schoolgirl for a mistress can be called any number of rude names, but "coward" is not one of them. 
-spoken by Teddy Lloyd


JEAN BRODIE:  It was you who betrayed me!
SANDY:  I didn't betray you - I put a stop to you!

1970: Best Actress in a Leading Role
Maggie Smith in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

I love the quotes, especially the last two. I have never seen this movie.

Lovely movie - and if you are a fan of Maggie Smith she has recently starred in an excellent period drama which was serialised over her "Downton Abbey."
