i don't know if i've ever written this on my blog before, but i love it so much. so i thought i would share. it's from the ending of Stranger than Fiction (one of my fave movies)
"because it's a book about a man that doesn't know he's about to die, and then dies...but if the man knows he is going to die and dies anyway, dies willingly, knowing that he could stop it, then i mean, isn't that the type of man you want to keep alive...
As Harold took a bit of bavarian sugar cookie he finally felt as if everything was going to be okay. Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair in routine and constancy , in hopelessness and tragedy we can thank God for bavarian sugar cookies and fortunately when there aren't any cookies we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or a subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace or an offer of comfort...not to mention hospital gurneys, and nose plugs, an uneaten danish, and soft spoken secrets and a fender stratocastor, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are in fact here for a much larger cause. They are here to save our lives."
they save my life every single day
