“What I think is, it’s never too late, or in my case, too early, to be whoever you want to be.  There’s no time limit.  Start any time you want.  Change or stay the same. There aren’t any rules.  We can make the best or worst of it…  I hope you make the best.  I hope you see things that startle you.  Feel things you never felt before.  I hope you meet people who have a different point of view.  I hope you challenge yourself.  I hope you stumble and pick yourself up.  I hope you live the life you wanted to, and if you haven’t, I hope you start all over again."

- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

A serious thank you to Teresa Wu for posting this quote.  As the chances of me seeing the movie are pretty much nil, I'm so happy I managed to come across these absolutely perfect words to live by.

What a fantastic quote and so apt for the time of year. I think the words are a perfect reminder to us all to make the most of life.

It's unlikely that I'll see that movie, too. Love the quote, though!

What a great quotation. Really spot on.

I've actually been dying to see this movie but the huz has put his foot down. I might just have to be one of those ladies who goes to the theater by herself at 1 pm.

I guess I could always claim I did it for nostalgic reasons---they filmed scenes around the corner from my much-missed Brooklyn apartment!
