that's a famous line from the 1950's Rosalyn Russell movie "Auntie Mame" : '...life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death...'

"Life is a banquet and most people are starving to death" omfg so true. We have so many aspects of ourselves that we never explore nor dare to because we are confided by conventions, cultures, religions, traditions and by societies at large. Dare to be different, dare to be a multifaceted you.

ru didn't credit it to name because for a gay audience ru wouldn't need to credit it. I can see the look in his face when he realizes, oh, these people don't know that line haha

Ed Reid (1 year ago)
