"Oh, no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast." - Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong in King Kong 1933)
"We all have abnormality in common. We're a breed apart from the rest of humanity, we theatre folk; We are the original displaced personalities." - Addison DeWitt (George Sanders in All About Eve 1950)
"We live our lives, do whatever we do, and then we sleep. It's as simple and ordinary as that. A few jump out windows, or drown themselves, or take pills; more die by accident; and most of us are slowly devoured by some disease, or, if we're very fortunate, by time itself. There's just this for consolation: an hour here or there when our lives seem, against all odds & expectations, to burst open & give us everything we've ever imagined, though everyone but children (and perhaps even they) know these hours will inevitably be followed by others, far darker and more difficult. Still, we cherish the city, the morning, we hope, more than anything for more. Heaven only knows why we love it so." - Clarissa ('The Hours' by Michael Cunningham p. 225-226 1999)
"Dear Leonard. To look life in the face. Always to look life in the face and to know it for what it is. At last to know it. To love it for what it is, and then, to put it away. Leonard. Always the years between us. Always the years. Always the love. Always the hours. " - Virginia Woolf (Nicole Kidman in The Hours 2001)

I have a great love of movies to where I couldn't begin to list my favorites.
Perhaps I will sit down and try a list someday.
For now, just give me a title and I shall give you an opinion.
Currently, the lovely and talented Arwen17evenstar and I are engaged in a fun little "Mab's Daughter" RP via Gaia (the link can be found on her profile page). She will gradually begin posting chapters on her ff.net account but do take the time to read her dreamy and delicious works whilst you are browsing her page.
