Meet Joe Black

From: Meet Joe Black (1998), which I watched again yesterday.

PARRISH: Well, it worries me. I want you to get swept away. I want you to evitate.
I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish.
SUSAN: That's all?
PARRISH: Be deliriously happy. Or at least leave yourself open to be.
SUSAN: 'Be deliriously happy'. I'm going to do my upmost --
PARRISH: I know it's a cornball thing but love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love -- well, you haven't lived a life at all.You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.
SUSAN: Bravo.
PARRISH: Aw, you're tough.
SUSAN: I'm sorry. But give it to me again. The short version.
PARRISH: Stay open. Who knows? Lightning could strike.


P.S. We are all going to die one day, that's the fact - and I just hope that Death really looks like Brad Pitt! :))

I sure as hell hope he doesn't look like Brad Pitt. I wouldn't wanna watch his ugly mug even after I'm dead.
