Quotes from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

“Life can only be understood looking backward.  It must be lived forward.” - [from the trailer]

“You never know what’s coming for you.”

“It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same.  You realize what’s changed, is you.”

“I want to remember us, just as we are now.”

“In the end, you have to let go.”

“I look a lot older than I really am.”

“We are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss”

“You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went, you can curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go.”

“We were meant to lose people. How else would we know how important they are?”

“Have I ever told you I’ve been struck by lightning seven times?”

“Along the way you bump into people who make a dent on your life. Some people get struck by lightning. Some are born to sit by a river. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim the English Channel. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people can dance.”

The letter to his daughter (submitted by Amanda)

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

Benjamin Button: I was thinking how nothing last, and what a shame that is. 
Daisy: Some things last.
