I Love You Like the Pilgrim Loves the Holy Land,



Like the wayfarer loves his wayward ways.

Like the immigrant that I am loves America,

And the blind man the memory of his sighted days.


from the movie, Four Friends

  4. Yes, quite lovely.

    The only romantic line I can remember from a movie was in Wuthering Heights. After Cathy died, Heathcliff clutched her body and wept..."I cannot live without my life. I cannot die without my soul."

    Sigh. I like the Lawrence Olivier version the best.

  5. I may have seen the movie. If so, I don't remember. Although it was in the 80's and there's quite a bit from that decade I don't remember. I've had those lines written on the back page of a favorite book that I took with me on a road trip to Florida. For many years I thought it was from a poem. The words have always stayed with me and I love those lines.
