The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: Quotes and Thoughts

I went for a movie last Sunday night, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I would say the movie is not as interesting as I thought it was straight after the show. However, I have to rephrase, this is a meaningful movie. Some of the quotes in the movie keep running inside my head, and I start googling about them on the internet. I think these are some worth sharing quotes from the movie:

"Life can only be understood looking backward. It must be lived forward."

"You never know what’s coming for you."

"We are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss."

"For what it’s worth, it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit... start whenever you want... you can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that stop you. I hope you feel things that you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life that you’re proud of and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."

"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went, you can curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go."

"We were meant to lose people. How else would we know how important they are?"
"It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you."

"Along the way you bump into people who make a dent on your life. Some people get struck by lightning. Some are born to sit by a river. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim the English Channel. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people dance."

Benjamin Button: I was thinking how nothing last, and what a shame that is.
Some things last.

"I want to remember us, just as we are now.

"Write me a postcard, write me a postcard everywhere..."

"We're meeting in the middle...we finally caught up with each other."

Maybe I will not remember all these quotes, but I'm sure that they will stay somewhere in my head, remind me from time to time, that I should grab every opportunity in my life, I should appreciate everything, every person that come across my life, even though, sometimes things will not last, you lose them in the middle, sometimes you make a mistake that you wish you can erase it forever, sometimes you will blame on everything that happen to you, sometimes....This is life. We look back, we stop and we move forward again.

Daisy: Goodnight Benjamin.
Benjamin Button: Goodnight Daisy.

Good night my friends. Have a sweet dream :)
