The Philosophy of George Emerson

Cecil Vyse, Lucy Honeychurch and George Emerson relax on the yard.

In a scene from the 1985 film adaptation of E.M. Forster's "A Room With a View," Cecil Vyse (Daniel Day-Lewis), Lucy Honeychurch (Helena Bonham Carter) and George Emerson (Julian Sands) repose on the lawn.

“There is a certain amount of kindness, just as there is a certain amount of light…We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won’t do harm…and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”
