Favorite Movie Lines by Susan Lute
No one is more surprised than I am that I’ve found ‘home’ in a small town. Or that besides dipping my toes into the hot eddies of paranormal/fantasy and loving it (stay tuned), I genuinely love writing what is now being called gentle fiction, “heartwarming stories set in small towns, about what really matters in life: home, family, and true love.” (Melissa Bourbon Ramirez, Romance Writers Report, November 2011 issue, page 33). While I’m doing final revisions on my current project, a gentle fiction set in the make believe town of Rosewood (very similar to the little community I live in), I’m also taking a break to do what a lot of folks in Rosewood like to do. Watch movies.
What I love about watching a movie is that sometimes a line will jump out at me with tons of meaning for that moment in my life. Here are a few of my favorites:
All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given you. ~ The Oracle (From the second or third Matrix movie)
I especially like this last quote. Don’t think you are a teacher. Know you are. Don’t think you are the best barista in town. Know you are. Don’t think you are a writer, author, novelist. Know you are.
So I return to Rosewood, the gentle fiction story I’ve set there, and the characters challenging my knowledge that I AM the author. Will he get the girl in the end? We’ll see 🙂
What’s your favorite line from a movie?
