Chick-flicks never fail to cheer me up. May be watching two happy people makes me forget about my own worries for a while or may be the fairy-tale-loving young girl still resides somewhere in me – whatever the reason, I find myself craving for one every so often. This week I picked The Vow. I found the story to be a little too good to be true (not the actual story, but the little things surrounding it). I mean, c’mon, when you have a cold your boyfriend sends you a hamper full of stuff that would make you feel better… he delivers it himself to your work and watches you open it, while he stands outside in the rain wearing a seriously hot shirt over a chiseled body? Only in a books and movies!
Anyway, there are two quotes from the movie that I really liked:
- Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.
- The moment of impact. The moment of impact proves potential for change. Has ripple effects far beyond what we can predict. Sending some particles crashing together. Making them closer than before. While sending others spinning off into great ventures. Landing them where you’d never thought you’d found them. That’s the thing about moments like these. You can’t, no matter how hard you try, control how it’s gonna affect you. You just gotta let the colliding parts go where they may. And wait. For the next collision.
The best thing in the movie, however, was it’s theme song- beautiful lyrics and haunting tune- the kind that you’d play on repeat for days.
So here we are now my friends
Gathered together again
To celebrate bitter-sweet life
So here’s to our struggles and strife
Let’s make the most of these hours
Till time defeats all with its powers
And let’s make the most till the dawn
Keep on going untill we are gone
One day there will come a time
When we all must face our crimes
All tears that we have caused
To hide our fears and our flaws
Getting so low and so high
Cought between gutter and sky
And we go through all of this
Just for a small taste of bliss
Keep on going until we are gone
So come on come on
Come on come on
Each of us is bleeding inside
We’re just alone for the ride
And each of us cursed to roam
We can never go home
Nobody else understood
But why do you think they would?
Do you think it’s how we planned?
We’re doing our best- best that we can…
