That`s why I fell in love with the devil
"...let me give you a little inside information about God.
God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it.
He gives man... ...instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do? I swear, for his own amusement... ...his own private, cosmic... ...gag reel... ...He sets the rules in opposition. It's the goof of all time.
Look, but don't touch.
Touch, but don't taste.
Taste, but don't swallow.
And while you're jumping from one foot to the next, what is He doing? He's laughing his sick, fucking ass off! He's a tightass! He's a sadist! He's an absentee landlord! Worship that? Never!
- "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven," is that it?
Why not? I'm here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began! I've nurtured every sensation man has been inspired to have! I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him! Why? Because I never rejected him, in spite of all his imperfections! I'm a fan of man! I'm a humanist. Maybe the last humanist."
Al Pacino`s speech on The Devil`s Advocate.
