QUOTES FROM Topol CHARACTERS

Perchik says: Money is the world's curse.

Tevye says: May the Lord smite me with it. And may I never recover.

Tevye says: As the good book says, when a poor man eats a chicken, one of them is sick.

Mendel says: Where does the book say that?

Tevye says: Well, it doesn't say that exactly, but somewhere there is something about a chicken. Good sabbath.
