“I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?”
Julie Delpy, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays
“I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between.

The answer must be in the attempt.”
Julie Delpy, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays

“Let me sing you a waltz / Out of nowhere, out of my thoughts / Let me sing you a waltz / About this one night stand / You were, for me, that night / Everything I always dreamt of in life / But now you're gone / You are far gone / All the way to your island of rain / It was for you just a one night thing / But you were much more to me, just so you know / I don't care what they say / I know what you meant for me that day / I just want another try, I just want another night / Even if it doesn't seem quite right / You meant for me much more than anyone I've met before / One single night with you, little Jesse, is worth a thousand with anybody / I have no bitterness, my sweet / I'll never forget this one night thing / Even tomorrow in other arms, my heart will stay yours until I die / Let me sing you a waltz / Out of nowhere, out of my blues / Let me sing you a waltz / About this lovely one night stand”

“no one really
knows anyone. That’s the thing
about relationships - people are
always saying, “I want to know you,
I want to know who you are.” But
it is so hard for anyone to even
know themselves. Who I am is
always changing, so how can anyone
else share in that?”
Richard Linklater, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays

Julie Delpy, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays
“I see the people that do the real work, and what in a way is really sad is that the people that are often the most giving, hardworking, and capable of making this world better don't really have the ambition and ego to be a leader—they don't see any interest in the rewards, they don't care if their names ever appear in the press, they actually enjoy the process of helping others, they are truly in the moment.”
Richard Linklater, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays
“You are both stars, don’t forget.
When the stars exploded billions of
years ago, they formed everything
that is this world. The moon, the
trees, everything we know is
stardust. So don’t forget. You
are stardust.
- ROSE PEDDLER”
Richard Linklater, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays

much more complex. Love’s like God
or something: It’s everywhere...I
see it, I feel it, but I don’t know
if another person is going to hand
it to me.”
