Synchronicity


marriage, quotes / Monday, March 5th, 2007

I have been trying to get Meet Joe Black on DVD for sometime, but apparently shops here don’t have it. I was lucky enough to spot it in a mall in Sydney, in the bargain section – and I immediately picked it up. And devoted a couple of nights to watching this again.

Brad Pitt is gorgeous, as is Claire Forlani, and Hopkins is great as usual. And always remember this line from William Parrish (played by Hopkins)- when asking his daughter (Claire) why her relationship with her boyfriend has all the passion of a pair of titmice:

Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is 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. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.

And this especially holds true here – where people get married because
a) it’s time
b) my mom wants me to
c) my dad wants me to
d) he’s ok
c) she’s ok

and so on and so forth.
