„Мне стыдно говорить об этом, но «Крёстного отца» я написал исключительно из того, что мог найти в другой литературе. Я никогда не встречал настоящего честного гангстера...“

„I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.“ The Godfather


„Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family.- Don Corleone“ The Godfather

„Great men are not born great, they grow great...“ The Godfather

„Never hate your enemies. It affects your judgment.“ The Godfather

„Revenge is a dish that tastes best when served cold.“ The Godfather

„A friend should always underestimate your virtues and an enemy overestimate your faults“ The Godfather

„Do you believe a man can truly love a woman and constantly betray her? Never mind physically but betray her in his mind, in the very "poetry of his soul". Well, it's not easy but men do it all the time.“ Fools Die


„I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse.“ The Godfather

„A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.“ The Godfather

„The lawyer with the briefcase can steal more money than the man with the gun.“ The Godfather

„You cannot say 'no' to the people you love, not often. That's the secret. And then when you do, it has to sound like a 'yes'. Or you have to make them say 'no.' You have to take time and trouble.“ The Godfather


„I don't trust society to protect us, I have no intention of placing my fate in the hands of men whose only qualification is that they managed to con a block of people to vote for them.“ The Godfather

„Italians have a little joke, that the world is so hard a man must have two fathers to look after him, and that's why they have godfathers.“ The Godfather

„Tom, don't let anybody kid you. It's all personal, every bit of business. Every piece of shit every man has to eat every day of his life is personal. They call it business. OK. But it's personal as hell. You know where I learned that from? The Don. My old man. The Godfather. If a bolt of lightning hit a friend of his the old man would take it personal. He took my going into the Marines personal. That's what makes him great. The Great Don. He takes everything personal Like God. He knows every feather that falls from the tail of a sparrow or however the hell it goes? Right? And you know something? Accidents don't happen to people who take accidents as a personal insult.“ The Godfather

„He smelled the garden, the yellow shield of light smote his eyes, and he whispered, "Life is so beautiful."
...
Yes, he thought, if I can die saying, "Life is so beautiful," then nothing else is important.“
The Godfather
