18/10/2006 - More or less
Ik zag gisteren een Amerikaanse dvd met een fantastische dialoog. The life of David Gate door Alan Parker (2003). Drie keer teruggespoeld en de tekst overgetypt. Een dialoog tussen Kevin Spacy and Kate Winslett. Ga er even voor zitten ... : 'Do you fantasize? Do you want more? A bigger house, a higher salary, a new car, even a new relation. What's the reality. The moment you have a big car, you want a bigger one. When you have a nice relation, you fantasize about another. Living by your wants never makes you happy. It's not it that you want, but the fantasy that you want. That's the real thing. The hunt is sweeter than the kill. Strive to live by your ideas. Measure not what you attained, but to savour those small moments of integrity, compassion, rationality, even self sacrifice. By valuing the lives of others you can measure your own life.'
