“It’s not just that she makes him a better person, she does, but he changes her too. Damon challenges her, surprises her, he makes her question her life, beliefs. He’s either the best thing for her, or the worst.”
“… here’s the funny thing: in my own crazy way, I was kind of happy. For the first time in years there was no part of me clinging to the dream of being with her. Which meant, for the first time in years, that the world was wide open - because when a door closes… well, you know the rest!”
(Ted Mosby) - HIMYM
“I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry, you will someday.”
“An idea is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed - fully understood - that sticks; right in there somewhere. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.”
“Everyone with their little perspective. Perspective is what shuts down the universe - it keeps the love out.”
“Maybe we are who we are because of the people we are with. Or maybe we just pick the people we need. However it works, when you find each other, you should never let go.”
(Gloria) Modern Family
“At the end of the day, it comes down to this: the way we chose to see ourselves, it limits who we can be. Step outside the box and you might learn something. Because we are more capable than we imagine. Because we all have it in us to do things we’ve never done before. Because sometimes we can surprise even ourselves.”
” … porque se damos uma faca e a mão para segurá-la, a mente acaba sendo tentada. Não porque queira; porque não quer.”
Stephen King’s The Gunslinger
“Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exists in 80’s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I want to ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just ONCE I want my life to be like an 80’s movie. Preferably one with a really awsome musical number for no apparent reason.”
“ It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream that nobody sees but you.”
(Eddie) - Million Dollar Baby
” Sometimes I feel there is a hole inside of me, and emptyness that at times, seems to burn. I think that if you lifted my heart to your ears, you could hear the ocean. And the moon tonight, there’s a circle around it, a sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole, of not going to sleep each night wanting. But still, sometimes, when the wind is warm and the crickets sing, I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me, I want to be seen. I don’t know… maybe I’ve had my happyness, I don’t want to believe it, but… There is no man, only that moon.”
(Sally) - Practical Magic
“ The man who said ‘I rather be lucky than good’ saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependant on luck. It’s scary to think so much is out of one’s control. There are moments in a (tennis) match, when a ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second it can either go foward or fall back… with a little luck, it goes foward and you win. Or maybe it doesn’t, and you lose.”
” Life’s simple: kill or be killed, don’t get involved and always finish the job. A survivor’s code, my code, and it all sounds great until the day you find yourself confronted by a choice. A choice to make a difference, to help someone, or to walk away and save yourself. I learned something that day: you can’t always walk away. Too bad it was the day I died.”
(Toorop) Babylon A.D.
