Maria Elena: You're still searching for me in every woman.
Juan Antonio: That is not true, Maria Elena. I was in Oviedo some weeks ago with a woman who was the antithesis of you. An American, and something beautiful happened with her. So you're mistaken.
Maria Elena: You'll always seek to duplicate what we had. You know it.

We are meant for each other and not meant for each other. It's a contradiction.

Juan Antonio

I'll go to your room, but you'll have to seduce me.


Maria Elena used to say that only unfulfilled love can be romantic.

Juan Antonio

And in the spring, 2003, he looked at me. And I knew, that he knew, who I was. And then he closed his eyes, as if to go to sleep.


Some nights, I'd have to sleep alone. I didn't mind, I would listen to the house breathin'. All those people sleepin'. I felt... safe.

Benjamin Button

Benjamin Button: Momma? Momma? Some days, I feel different than the day before.
Queenie: Everyone feels different about themselves one way or another, but we all goin' the same way.

Daisy: You are so much younger.
Benjamin Button: Only on the outside.

It's funny how sometimes the people we remember the least make the greatest impression on us.

Benjamin Button

Benjamin Button: [Voice over; letter to his daughter] 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, stop 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. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

Did you know that I was struck by lightning seven times?

Mr. Daws

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