“You forget your life after a while, life you had before. Things you cherish and hold dear are like pearls on a string. Cut the knot, they scatter across the floor, rolling into dark corners never to be found again. So you move on. And eventually you forget what the pearls even looked like. At least you try.”*
Often I watch a film, whether in cinema or elsewhere, and hear amazing few lines, wishing to be able to write them down, but they disappear too fast so I commit them to my vague recollection. Most of the time they are enjoyed for a moment and then simply lost. This time, however, an exception happened and I caught the beauty of the quote.
*From ‘Outlander’, Claire speaking at the beginning of episode 7, season 1
