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..
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。
