Quote of the day: From the film 'Rushmore'

(Speech to the students of Rushmore Academy): "You guys have it real easy. I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget that. Thank you." – spoken by the character 'Herman Blume' as portrayed by Bill Murray in the film Rushmore.

Yes. It was one of those Murrayisms that make his movies memorable.

It is a totally original movie. It is quirky and funny. Many funny lines that stay with you after watching it. Is that Latin?
