From Diary of a Lost Girl

The closing line of Diary of a Lost Girl (dir. G.W. Pabst, 1929), spoken by the elder Count Osdorff (Arnold Korff):

“Ein wenig mehr Liebe und niemand kann verloren sein auf dieser Welt!” [Just a little more love and no one would be lost in this world!]

Ein frommer Wunsch! But I don't believe it. Even a lot of love would not fix this problem. Verlorenheit is an ineradicable part of the human condition—or so I believe.

You’re no doubt right. But I have to root for Liebe.
