Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Lola (1981)

Esslin: He who has no house shall not build one. 
He who is alone shall long remain so... 
Lola: Why do you only read me sad poems? 
Esslin: Poetry is always sad. 
Lola: And why's that? Why can't it be funny for once? 
Esslin: Because a poem comes from the soul. 
And the soul is sad. 
Lola: Is it? And why is that? Nitwit. 
Esslin: Because the soul knows more than the mind. 
That's why it's sad. 
Lola: Strange. For me, it's the other way around. 
For me, the mind knows more than the soul. 

Rainer Werner Fassbinder was born on this day in 1945.
