Quote From Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman's "You Can't Take It With You"

Grandpa Vanderhof and Boris Kolenkhov in Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman's You Can't Take It With You:
KOLENKHOV: How can you relax in times like these?
GRANDPA: Well, if they'd relax there wouldn't be times like these. That's just my point. Life is kind of beautiful if you let it come to you. But the trouble is, people forget that. I know I did. I was right in the thick of it...fighting, and scratching and clawing. Regular jungle. One day it just kind of struck me, I wasn't having any fun.
KOLENKHOV: So you did what? 
GRANDPA: Just relaxed. Thirty-five years ago, that was. And I've been a happy man ever since.
