The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

This was a good movie- I saw it a couple of weeks ago (FINALLY!) and my favorite part was the letter that Benjamin wrote to his daughter. It's a little weird that this is my favorite part considering the movie is beautiful and New Orleans provides an amazing background and the acting is great and Brad Pitt is soooo stunning when, you know, he's Brad Pitt and the right age and stuff. But it's such a great quote, and I want to write it out and put it up all over my apartment and office and car... when I find a quote I like I tend to get a little carried away.

So for now I'll just put it on my blog. It's a lot less cluttery that way.

"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. "

There are no rules to this thing. That's always worth remembering, isn't it?

I watched this just the other night. I would say I loved the movie, but my head was so stuffed up I couldn't hear half the dialogue. It still made me cry. I did hear and like that line, though.
