I Bet You Think This Post Is About You

Saw No Country For Old Men last night. Two quotes stick out.

The first is the sheriff’s (played by Tommy Lee Jones) response to his deputy’s inquiry, “It’s a mess, ain’t it sheriff?”

“If it ain’t,” the sheriff replies, “it’ll do ’til the mess gets here.”

The second is near the end of the film after the mess arrives, and comes in the form of advice given to the sheriff from an old man. “Can’t stop what’s coming. It ain’t waitin’ on you. That’s vanity.”
