Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower, and draws all good things toward you. Allow your love to nourish yourself as well as others. Do not strain after the needs of life. It is sufficient to be quietly alert and aware of them. In this way life proceeds more naturally and effortlessly. Life is here to Enjoy!

Barton Fink is a 1991 film by Joel and Ethan Coen. Arguably the brothers' most enigmatic film to date, it tells the story of Barton Fink (John Turturro), a young, intense, and rather unlikeable writer of Social realist plays in the early 1940s; his raison d'être is to "create a theatre of the common man."

Written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen.
