I Love You To Death

Daughter - I'm arrogant because I forgive people?

Father - My God, can't you see how condescending you are when you say that?
You have this preconceived notion that nobody, listen, that nobody can't possibly attain the same high ethical standards as you, so you exonerate them. I can not think of anything more arrogant than that. You, my child, my dear child... you forgive others with excuses that you would never in the world permit for yourself.

Daughter - Why shouldn't I be merciful? Why?

Father - No, no, no, you should, you should be merciful when there is time to be merciful. But you must maintain your own standard. You owe them that! You owe them that! The penalty you deserve for your transgressions, they deserve for their transgressions.

Daughter - They are human beings!

Father - No, no, no. Does every human being need to be accountable for their actions? Of course they do! But you don't even give them that chance. And that is extremely arrogant! I love you, I love you, I love you to death. But you are the most arrogant person I have ever met. And you call me arrogant! I wanna make this world a little better.

Thanks to Dogville
