Lady Vengeance
Park Chan-Wook

quote #30

He thought of the pumpkin leaves pushing through the earth. Tomorrow will be their last day, he thought: the day after that they will wilt, and the day after that they will die, while i am out here in the mountains. Perhaps if I started at sunrise and ran all day I would not be too late to save them, them and the other seeds that are going to die underground, though they do not know it, that are never going to see the light of day. There was a cord of tenderness that stretched from him to the patch of earth beside the dam and must be cut. It seemed to him that one could cut a cord like that only so many times before it would not grow again.

Often a man wishes to be alone and a girl wishes to be alone too and if they love each other they are jealous of that in each other

A Farewell to Arms
Ernest Hemingway

thought #13

I wonder if at any point during the serenity of the night, the homeless man pushing his shopping cart full of cans and glass bottles gets annoyed with his own racket.

Naked
Michael Leigh
"That's the trouble with everybody. You're all so bored. You've had nature explained to you, and you're bored with it. You've had the living body explained to you, and you're bored with it. You've had the universe explained to you, and you're bored with it. So now you just want cheap thrills and plenty of 'em and it don't matter how tawdry or vacuous they are as long as it's new, as long as it's new, as long as it flashes and fucking beeps in forty fucking different colors."
