I couldn’t let February go without one last Valentine-y movie quote. And I hadn’t planned on using another Moonstruck quote (at least not so soon), but I
couldn’t didn’t resist that, either.
This is from the same scene as the last Moonstruck quote, and it’s Ronny’s response to Loretta, who said she could resist the pull she felt toward him. She told him a person can learn from their mistakes, that they can “say yes to some things and no to other things that are gonna ruin everything”.
Ronny: Love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess! We, we aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect… The stars are perfect. Not us – not us. We are here to ruin ourselves and…and to break our hearts.
What do you think?
I was really struck by thesinglecell’s quote about love on last week’s Infinite Monkey, and I wonder if she and Ronny are right.
