I love the movie Meet Joe Black. In a certain scene in the movie William Parrish (played by Anthony Hopkins) is speaking to his daughter Susan Parrish (Claire Forlani) about living and loving, encouraging her not to “settle” but to embrace passion like crazy. I had to share –
“I know it’s a cornball thing, but love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy, and who’ll love you the same way back. How do you you find ’em? Well, you forget your head and you listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there’s no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, you haven’t lived a life at all. But you have to try, because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.“
Isn’t this really what we all want?
