Sweet-cakes and Milkshakes

Some quotes and a Poem from the movie “Before Sunrise

Street Poet: Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash
Oh baby with your pretty face , Drop a tear in my wineglass

Look at those big eyes , See what you mean to me
Sweet-cakes and milkshakes
I’m a delusion angel , I’m a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think , Don’t want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from , We have no idea where we’re going
Lodged in life , Like branches in a river
Flowing downstream, Caught in the current
I carry you , You’ll carry me
That’s how it could be , Don’t you know me?
Don’t you know me by now?

Celine: I believe if there’s any kind of God it wouldn’t be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there’s any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it’s almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.

Jesse: OK, well this was my thought: 50,000 years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. 10,000 years ago, there’s, like, two million people on the planet. Now there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? You know, are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls? ‘Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000 to 1 split of each soul in the last 50,000 years, which is, like, a blip in the Earth’s time. You know, so at best we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking…I mean, is that why we’re so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized?
