Yes...OK?... think...sand. Lots of...sand.
Lawrence of Arabia again?
Your turn, m'8.
Oh, okay ... I didn't think that was actually the answer. Let's see ...
"Fuck me gently with a chainsaw! Do I look like Mother Teresa?"
Heathers, of course.
"When a man is born, he is weak and supple, when he dies – he is strong and callous. When a tree grows, it is tender and gentle, and when it is dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and strength are companions of death, suppleness and weakness express the freshness of living. That is why what has hardened, will not win"
Is this spokesman an Italian?
Oops! Sorry for the delay.

"I'm your Huckleberry"

Go for it, Mang !
Okay, took me awhile becase the quote is actually "weak and flexible" and I was using that as part of the key phrase, but it's from Stalker (1979) and appears to be derived from a Lao-Tzu quotation. The film was originally released in Russian with subtitles, so I don't feel too bad about getting skunked on this one.
Here's something a little less challenging:
"Go, and never darken my towels again!"
Ah yes....Rufus T. Firefly (the inimitable Groucho Marx), in "Duck Soup"
"Add just a punch of salt"
Sorry! I didn't mean to drop an impossible quote and leave, but I was called away for a couple of weeks. I am glad that someone finally Googled it. Stalker is an amazing movie.
