A Walk to Remember (2002)
condition though, Carter."
is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful
or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense
and is not resentful."
-- "Jamie saved my life. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. I'll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can't see it, but I can feel it."
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002)
"There are people in the world who are here to save you when you need saving, cover your ass when it needs covering, and are always there when you need someone to lean on. We are the mighty Ya-Ya priestesses. Let no man put us under. Now our blood flows through each other as it has for all eternity. Loyal forever. We raise our voices in the words of mumbo gumbo. - Ya-Ya!"

better get married soon. You're starting to look old."

not leaving you. Don't you want me to do something with my life?"
Love Actually (2003)
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."
"Life is full of interruptions and complications."
(delivered in Portuguese) "Beautiful Aurelia, I've come here
with a view to asking you to marriage me. I know I seems an insane
person - because I hardly knows you - but sometimes things are so
transparency, they don't need evidential proof. And I will inhabit
here, or you can inhabit with me in England....Of course, I don't
expecting you to be as foolish as me, and of course I prediction
you say 'no' but it's Christmas and I just wanted to check..."
Mona Lisa Smile (2003)
"All her life, she had wanted to teach at Wellesley College. So when a position opened in the Art History department, she pursued it single-mindedly until she was hired. It was whispered that Katherine Watson, a first-year teacher from Oakland State, made up in brains what she lacked in pedigree. Which was why this bohemian from California was on her way to the most conservative college in the nation. But Katherine Watson didn't come to Wellesley to fit in. She came to Wellesley because she wanted to make a difference."
isn't what I think it is. Is it?" (a birth control pill case)
teacher, Katherine Watson, lived by her own definition and would
not compromise that, not even for Wellesley. I dedicate this, my
last editorial, to an extraordinary woman, who lived by example and
compelled us all to see the world through new eyes. By the time you
read this, she'll be sailing to Europe, where I know she'll find
new walls to break down, and new ideas to replace them with."
What A Girl Wants (2003)
"My name is Daphne Reynolds, and I was born in New York City. I've lived my whole life with my Mom in a fifth-floor walkup in Chinatown. It's always been just the two of us, me and Libby. But every year on my birthday, I'd make a wish. Make a wish, baby! That someone else could be there, too. And every year when he didn't come, I'd ask my Mom to tell me the same story..."
"No hugs, dear. I'm British. We only show affection to dogs and horses."
"You know what I still don't get? Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you're born to stand out?"

so lucky you're a professional cliff diver in Hawaii."
don't know who you are, Henry, but I dream about you almost every
night. (pause) Why?"

course, all of the Plastics are in the same gym class."
"Here, this map is gonna be your guide to North Shore. Now, where you sit in the cafeteria is crucial, because you got everybody there. You got your Freshmen, ROTC Guys, Preps, J.V.

Beware of the Plastics."
The Notebook (2004)
romances end for all kinds of reasons. But, when all is said and
done, they have one thing in common: they are shooting stars, a spectacular
moment of light in the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity, and
in a flash, they're gone. Noah was desperate. He wrote to Allie that
he was sorry and stupid for breaking up with her. He wrote to tell
her that he still loved her, and he wanted to see her, and if she
would write back, he would come to wherever she was. He wrote one
letter a day for a year. 365 letters, but they all went unanswered...Finally,
after a year of silence, he decided to put it all behind him and
start a new life. So he wrote a farewell letter..."
