Woody Allen List™

У Вуди Аллена есть чудесное место в самом конце "Манхэттена":

Well, all right, why is life worth living?
That's a very good question.
Well, there are certain things, I guess, that make it worthwhile.
Like what?
OK... for me...
Ooh, I would say Groucho Marx, to name one thing.
And Willie Mays.
And... the second movement of the Jupiter Symphony.
And... Louis Armstrong's recording of Potato Head Blues.
Swedish movies, naturally.
Sentimental Education by Flaubert.
Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra.
Those incredible apples and pears by Cezanne.
The crabs at Sam Wo's.
Tracy's face.

Интересно составить для себя такой список.
Можно попробовать, хотя, наверняка, он будет неполным, потому что всё так сразу и не упомнишь.
Назовём его Woody Allen List™.
