I recently read Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour. I absolutely adored this quote, especially because it can be applied to movies as well as books.
We love films because they make us feel something. They speak to our desires, which are never small. They allow us to escape and to dream and to gaze into eyes that are impossibly beautiful and huge. They fill us with longing.
They tell us to remember; they remind us of life. Remember, they say, how much it hurts to have your heart broken. Remember about death and suffering and the complexities of living. Remember what it is like to love someone. Remember how it is to be loved. Remember what you feel in this moment. Remember this. Remember this. (Page 305)
There’s nothing much I wanted to say about this quote, mostly because I believe it can speak for itself. However, feel free to let me know what you think about it in the comments. 🙂
