quote of the day

"love actually is all around"

Have you seen the movie Love Actually?  It's marvelous.  If you never have please rent, netflix, or purchase it on iTunes immediately. I actually had to buy a second DVD because I had watched mine so many times that it wouldn't run anymore.  woops!  

The movie is about love in it's many shapes and sizes.  It follows a number of different story lines that all intertwine.  It's a British movie but I would have to say the American version of it would be the recently released Valentines' Day- a lot of different celebs and story lines but an end message of love.  

Life comes at you and your love and relationships will either grow stronger or not make it through the mountains.  This movie really is about that.  (although I do love when young sam says "worse than the total agony of being in love?" and "ok dad, let's do it.  let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love" haha) Plus it has so much Christmas spirit in it!  My starbucks cup post made me want to watch the movie, so that is what I will be doing tonight.

I love the scene in the movie where Hugh Grant, the Prime Minister, is dancing by himself.  

This is the full quote that opens the movie and is read by Hugh Grant in that sexy accent of his.  It is truly inspiring in my belief.

“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.”
