Quote of the Day 6/08/08

You take your time now, 'cause these summer days go slow. But let me tell you, sweetheart, the years ... fly by.

Yeah.

They fly by.

That's worthy of being framed. You made me cry with that one. So true. SO true.

Have you seen the movie, Janine? If you have netflix it's on their instant play. This scene is ... I think ... minute 16 or 17. Certainly in the 10 minutes between minute 15 and 20 if you want to catch it.

I haven't seen it. I'll have to check that out. Is the film worthy of seeing...not just for that scene?

JPB said...

Oh, yes. I think it's a wonderful film. Some might accuse it of being overly sentimental, but perhaps because I have lived with the elderly, I think it captures very well some aspects, at least, of their struggle to live well at the end and to die well.

Okay. I'm adding it to my queue.
