Thoughts of the Day-2

bfdvds131.jpgAlfredo: Living here day by day, you think it's the center of the world. You believe nothing will ever change. Then you leave: a year, two years. When you come back, everything's changed. The thread's broken. What you came to find isn't there. What was yours is gone. You have to go away for a long time... many years... before you can come back and find your people. The land where you were born. But now, no. It's not possible. Right now you're blinder than I am.
Salvatore: Who said that? Gary Cooper? James Stewart? Henry Fonda? Eh?
Alfredo: No, Toto. Nobody said it. This time it's all me. Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder.

[Above quote is from Nuovo Cinema Paradiso]

Sojourner, why you do go long distances? Why? Have you lost you way. Didn't you know that. Why do I always return but always little too late? Why I long to return? Why are we all Alfredo?
