Humphrey Bogart in Sahara (1943)
My first morning home I was having breakfast in bed when Bogie went off for work. Before he left, he stopped in to see his son- I had the intercom on and suddenly heard in a soft, new voice, "Hello, son. You’re a little fella, aren’t you? I’m Father. Welcome home." It was so unexpected- so moving. He’d never been faced with a tiny creature of his own before. He wasn’t sure what to say to him or how to say it. He was just letting him know that he was there- that he’d do his best and was glad to have him. Lucky Steve. Lucky me.

I haven’t lived a good life. I’ve been bad, worse than you could know.
