Letting go…

We’re meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?
– Mrs. Maple (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button)

My favorite quote from The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. I wasnt overly impressed with the movie, the makeup is great and the story is very unique but I felt the movie dragged in parts. Anyway the quotes from the movie is what I enjoyed the most… Here are a few that I will hold onto for a while

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could swear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go.

Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.

Along the way you bump into people who make a dent on your life. Some people get struck by lightning. Some are born to sit by a river. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim the English Channel. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people can dance.

It’s a funny thing about comin’ home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You’ll realize what’s changed is you.
