Quote from Shop Girl (the movie)|
Ray Porter: As Ray Porter watches Mirabelle walk away he feels a loss. How is it possible, he thinks, to miss a woman whom he kept at a distance so that when she was gone he would not miss her. Only then does he realize that wanting part of her and not all of her had hurt them both, and how he cannot justify his actions except that... well... it was life.
(it's a neat movie, especially visually)

If this was the quote you meant when you called, I can both see why it would evoke memories, and I'd have a clarification to make to the bolded parts. :) Wasn't sure if you'd rather me clarify in IM, so just putting a reminder to us here if you wanna talk more about it. *hugs*
It wasn't that quote that made me want to pick you up and hug you, so much as the whole movie. :)
I never did talk about why, did I?
I'll hope to catch you on IM soon then, and we can do some reciprocal clarification. :)

whee, yay! Was fun to chat with you by phone, a nice surprise treat!
yeah, that was fun! we should do that more. :)
Thought-provoking quote, thanks for posting it.
Thanks. I'd thought about posting it as a comment to the snippet you posted, then decided to make it its own post. I've really been thinking a lot about my own feelings and interests, as well as other people's - this quote makes me reflect on that in terms of how I've treated other people and not just on how other people have treated me.

So sad. The more I live, the more I realize that love, in all the forms I experience it (romantic, platonic, maternal), is about surrendering to it. So much easier said than done.
