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.
如果可以讓我選擇,也寧願是一整天的電影、閱讀、和聆聽。這遠勝過於坐在辦公室面對電腦和乘坐骯髒的紐約地下鐵。

Jesse: People think love is this unselfish or totally giving thing. But if you think about it, there's probably nothing more selfish.
不自私和全新的付出?在熱戀的時候,那種想要看到對方,跟對方講電話,想要某種程度上控制對方的感覺、思想,希望對方跟自己付出的一樣多的感覺,绝對不是什麼無私的愛吧。總之只是希望自己能被多愛一點點。

Celine: Yeah. When you start talking about women and men, there's no end.
沒錯....兩者差別甚大,是無解。

Celine: Memory is a wonderful thing if you don't have to deal with the past.
我珍惜所有我的回憶,不管是悲傷的、快樂的,是因為她們所以構成了今天的我。

Jesse: Once they'd more or less gotten used to their new situation, they were fundamentally the same as they were before.
環境其實很難改變一個人。一開始會因為新鮮感,好像身上起了化學作用,產生感變,但是新鮮感退去,我還是原來的我,不煮飯依然不會煮飯、喜歡睡懶覺還是睡懶覺,喜歡呆坐著喝咖啡還是呆坐著喝咖啡.....

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.
小的時候也是這麼覺得,好像只要到不同的地方,就會遇上不同的人,到處都是機會。碰到的人越來越多了,層面也越來越廣,背景確也越來越不相同。大概自己也越來越固執吧,於是真正能夠交心的朋友、戀人,就少了。

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..
還記得這是在Before Sunset中Celine在車子裡歇斯底里的那段嗎,當時覺得好震撼,我也曾經也有過這種感覺,記憶好像就永遠停留在那段特定的時光,所有的力氣跟感覺,都在那段時光用盡,之後整個人就像閉關一樣,麻木。而那感覺要好久才會再回來,不過還好,不管再久,碰到對得的人,還是會回來的。
