Quote #2

Song: Staring at the Moon- Bruno Mars
Mood: hopeful (still)
Movie: It's Kind Of A Funny Story...
(Since there is no tabbing, a new line is a new paragraph.)

Dev takes his arm and puts it right against mine, skin to skin, sweat on sweat, touch on touch. Then he glides his hand into mine and intertwines our fingers.
"This," he says. "This is why the Beatles got it."
"I'm afraid I'm not following..."
"Other bands, it's about sex. Or pain. Or some fantasy. But the Beatles, they knew what they were doing. You know the reason the Beatles made it so big?"
"'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. F*cking brilliant. Perhaps the most f*ucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That's what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can't hide. Every single successful love song of the past 50 years can be traced back to 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand." And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand holding. Trust me. I've thought a lot about this."
-Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist

Amazing book.
