X never, ever marks the spot.

"X never, ever marks the spot."

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989):

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) tells his university students, "X never, ever marks the spot." Then later he follows Roman Numerals 1 through 10 to a vital clue beneath the 10... a huge X.

Wouldn't it be nice in the journey of life if X marked the spot, indicating we have arrived, or we're at least on the right track?

And a huge X might come in handy when searching for lost keys, misplaced reading glasses, or where we parked the car.

But alas, Indiana's initial observation seems correct, "X never, ever marks the spot."

  1. It's probably a good thing X never marks the spot. Otherwise, it would be too easy to find, and where's the fun in that?

    1. Good point. And sometimes searching for one thing leads me to find other things I thought were irretrievably lost!
