Movie Quote of the Day – The Hours, 2002 (dir. Stephen Daldry)
Leonard Woolf: Why does someone have to die?
Virginia Woolf: Leonard?
Leonard Woolf: In your book, you said someone had to die.
Virginia Woolf: Mmmm.
Leonard Woolf: Why? Is this a stupid question?
Virginia Woolf: No.
Leonard Woolf: Then answer my question, stupid.
Virginia Woolf: Not at all.
Leonard Woolf: Well?
Virginia Woolf: Someone has to die in order that the rest of us should value life more. It’s contrast.
