”i love relationships, i think they’re wonderful, i think they’re great. i think there’s nothing in the world more beautiful than falling in love. but falling in love for the right reason; falling in love for the right purpose... and when you fall in love, what is there to compromise about? (int: isn’t love a union between two people? or does Eartha fall in love with herself?) ...yes. i fall in love with myself, and i want someone to share it with me. i want to share me, with me.” – Eartha Kitt, circa 1982

”it’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it and they love you and you know it, but it’s a party and you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes, but... not because you’re possessive or that it’s precisely sexual... but because that is your person in this life. and it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. it’s sort if like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. that’s... that’s what i want out of a relationship. or just life, i guess. love.” - Frances Ha, 2012

”‪the man of my dreams has almost faded now. the one i have created in my mind. the sort of man each woman dreams of, in the deepest and most secret reaches of her heart. i can almost see him now before me. what would i say to him if he were really here? "forgive me. i have never known this feeling. i have lived without it all my life. is it any wonder, then, i failed to recognize you? you, who brought it to me for the first time. is there any way i can tell you how my life have changed? any way at all to let you know what sweetness you have given me? there is so much to say... i cannot find the words. except for these: i love you.” - Somewhere in Time, 1980

”what i am trying to say is i understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. and how it can actually ache in places that you didn’t know you had inside you. and it doesn’t matter how many new hair cuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of Chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends. you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. and how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. and sometimes you can even convince yourself that he’ll see the light and show up at your door. and after all that, however long all that may be, you’ll go somewhere new, and you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again, and little pieces of your soul will finally come back. and all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.” - The Holiday, 2006

”i believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. if there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. i know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? the answer must be in the attempt.” - Before Sunrise, 1995

”unable to perceive the shape of you, i find you all around me. your presence fills my eyes with your love. it humbles my heart, for you are everywhere.” - The Shape of Water, 2017
