Jesse: I’m okay with you being a complicated human being! I don’t wanna live a boring life where two people own each other, where two people are institutionalized in a box that others created – because that is a bunch of stifling bullshit!

Waitress: Hey, how is everything?
James Barris: Everything is super good.
Charles Freck: Not with me. I’ve got a lot of problems that nobody else has.
James Barris: Freck, come on. More people than you’d think and more people each day. This is a world getting progressively worse. Can we not agree on that? What’s on the dessert menu?

Movie Quote of the Day – Before Sunrise, 1995 (dir. Richard Linklater)


Jesse: Um, do you believe in reincarnation?
Céline: Yeah, yeah, it’s interesting.
Jesse: Most people, you know, a lot of people talk about the past lives, and things like that, you know, and even if they don’t believe in it in some specific way, you know, people have some kind of notion of an eternal soul, right?
Céline: Yeah.
Jesse: Okay. Well, this is my thought. Fifty thousand years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. Ten thousand years ago, there’s like two million people on the planet. Now, there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? Are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls?. Because if they are, that represents a five thousand-to-one split of each soul in just the last fifty thousand years, which is like a blip in the earth’s time. You know, so, at best, we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking… I mean, is that why we’re all so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized?
Céline: Wait a minute, I’m not sure I…I don’t….
Jesse: Hang on, I know, I know, its a totally scattered thought, which is kind of why it makes sense.
