”ANDY: You know, when I was a surgeon, I saw a lot of patients that didn’t have much time left. And I was always amazed at what they were willing to go through – how much pain they would endure rather than simply letting go. In the end, pain was always preferable to nothing. I think it was that fear of taking the next step – of the unknown – that held them back, that made them willing to suffer so much, sometimes too willing. Because in some cases it really was time to move on.
EPHRAM: Is that your not-so-subtle way of telling me to forget Madison?
ANDY: No. You’re never going to forget her.”
”A heart is a fragile thing. That’s why we protect them so vigorously; give them away so rarely. And why it means so much when we do. Some hearts are more fragile than others…purer somehow. Like crystal in a world of glass, even the way they shatter is beautiful.”
”I mean, what if I get depressed again, or worse?
Linda: Come here, sit. Listen to me…You will get depressed again, and you’ll be sad sometimes. Probably more than you’d like if your life is like most people’s. And you’ll yell, and you’ll cry a little. And you’ll get past it. I mean that’s how life works.”
