Beautifully said, about the soul. I think it is the way to view it to make it through the difficult times.

I think of John Keats -

"Call the world if you Please "The vale of Soul-making." Then you will find out the use of the world . . . I say 'Soul-making' Soul as distinguished from an Intelligence -- There may be intelligences or sparks of the divinity in millions -- but they are not Souls till they acquire identities, till each one is personally itself. . . . Do you not see how necessary a World of Pains and troubles is to school an Intelligence and make it a Soul? . . . Seriously I think it probable that this System of Soul-making -- may have been the Parent of all the more palpable and personal Schemes of Redemption, among the Zoroastrians the Christians and the Hindoos."

If you haven't seen the Grapes of Wrath, I'd put it near the top of the list. Right after Inherit the Wind.

I've read the book many times, but not seen the movie. Ironically, my son was a film major, and I am a bit lax as to film. Stanley Fish listed his ten favorite films in the NY Times and I realized how few I had seen.
