‘It takes fierce will to get ahead in this world’ – The Tree of Life (2011)

Two Ways Through Life - The Tree of Life (2011) Film Enthusiast

Mr. O’Brien: Your mother’s naive.

Father playing “Red Hands or The Hand Slap Game” (Whoa!)

It takes fierce will to get ahead in this world.

If you’re good, people take advantage of you.

Every one of these top executives — you know how they got where they are?

Floated right down the middle of the river.

Don’t let anyone tell you there’s anything you can’t do.

Don’t do like I did. Promise me that.

I dreamed of being a great musician.

I let myself get sidetracked. If you’re lookin’ for somethin’ to happen, that was it.

That was life. You lived it.
