fallingstar12: Some Quotes from My Favorite Movie: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Joel: Constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating.

Clementine: You know me, I'm impulsive.
Joel: That's what I love about you.

Joel: Valentine's Day is a day invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap.

Clementine: Was it something I said?
Joel: Yeah, you said so go. Said it with such disdain you know?
Clementine: Oh, I'm sorry.
Joel: It's ok.
Clementine: I wish you had stayed.
Joel: I wish I had stayed to. I swear to god I wish I had stayed. I wish I had done a lot of things. I wish... I wish I had stayed.

Joel: Sand is overrated. It's just tiny, little rocks.

Clementine: My crotch is still here, just as you remembered it.
Joel: Yuck!

Joel: Why do I fall in love with every woman I see who shows me the least bit of attention?

Clementine: Sometimes I don't think people realize how lonely it is to be a kid.

Clementine: When I was a kid, I thought I was. I can't believe I'm crying already. Sometimes I think people don't understand how lonely it is to be a kid, like you don't matter. So, I'm eight, and I have these toys, these dolls. My favorite is this ugly girl doll who I call Clementine, and I keep yelling at her, "You can't be ugly! Be pretty!" It's weird, like if I can transform her, I would magically change, too.
Joel: [kisses Clementine] You're pretty.
Clementine: Joely, don't ever leave me.
Joel: You're pretty... you're pretty... pretty...

Clementine: I apply my personality in a paste.

Mary: Adults are like a combination of sadness and phobias.

Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends
of them?
- Abraham Lincoln

Are we going to be friends forever? Asked Piglet.
Even longer, Pooh answered.
- A. A. Milne

A friend is a gift you give yourself.
- Robert Louis Stevenson

“I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.”

There’s a miracle of friendship that
dwells within the heart
And you don’t know how it happens
or where it gets its start
But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift
Any you realize that friendship
Is God’s most perfect gift.

"True friends stab you in the front."
-Oscar Wilde

"A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself."

My son, Sebastian and I constructed our days. Each day we would carve each day like a piece of sculpture, leaving behind us a trail of days like a gallery of sculpture until suddenly, last summer.
