The Holiday.
My favorite quote from any movie ever made : 
I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night. And then, there's another kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space! -Iris Simpkins
What a dialogue, eh?
(Try and imagine Kate Winslet's voice.)
Gets to me every time. 
Especially with the music.
I feel like Kate should have won an award or something for this movie... I mean just watch this clip.
Honestly, if you haven't seen this movie... rent it NOW.
Always makes me feel good. 

Well this is pretty much what I wanted to share with the world.
My favorite movie.
Hope you enjoyed it.
