Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are two of my favorite movies. People who have watched it are always moved by the conversations between Jesse and Celine, so natural and real that it seems like somehow somewhere, we have had this conversation with somebody in our lives. Finally, I got the book from Borders and spent this Saturday reading it, just to refresh my memory and pick the lines that I am most resonated......
Celine: I think I'm always so much more happy with books and movies and stuff. I think I'm more excited about well-done representations of life than life itself.
Jesse: People think love is this unselfish or totally giving thing. But if you think about it, there's probably nothing more selfish.
Celine: Yeah. When you start talking about women and men, there's no end.
Celine: Memory is a wonderful thing if you don't have to deal with the past.
Jesse: Once they'd more or less gotten used to their new situation, they were fundamentally the same as they were before.
Celine: I guess when you are young, you believe that you will meet many people with whom you'll connect with, ,but later in life you reliaze it only happened a few times.
Celine: It's almost like in a way I put all my romanticism into that one night and I was never able to feel all this again..
