Good Words: Life of Pi

Brian and I watched Life of Pi tonight while I folded four loads of laundry. That movie was much to think about, and unbelievable characters and imagery. I had to post my favorite dialogue:

Writer: So, you're a Christian, and a Muslim?

Adult Pi Patel: And a Hindu of course.

Writer: And a Jew, I suppose?

Adult Pi Patel: Well, I do teach a course on Kabbalah at the university. And why not? Faith is a house with many rooms.

Writer: But no room for doubt?

Adult Pi Patel: Oh plenty, on every floor. Doubt is useful, it keeps faith a living thing. After all, you cannot know the strength of your faith until it has been tested.
