Really, half this business is putting a rectangle around things. Put a square around something someone is looking at and he’ll say in surprise, “Oh, how beautiful.” And I don’t think it’s the photographer who provides the square. I do. - David Lean

I’ve fallen in love. I’m an ordinary woman. I didn’t think such violent things could happen to ordinary people.

“I had no thoughts at all. Only an overwhelming desire not to feel anything ever again. Not to be unhappy anymore.”
I watched Brief Encounter (1945) today. And I felt afraid. Terribly afraid. I don’t even know what the heck I was afraid of. But still that feeling was all over me. Scared, too. Maybe I was thinking about my little future ahead. Oh I hate good movies. They always haunt me for weeks!
