Frank Flannagan: Everything about you is perfect.
Ariane Chavasse: I’m too thin! And my ears stick out, and my teeth are crooked and my neck’s much too long. 
Frank Flannagan: Maybe so, but I love the way it all hangs together.

-Love in the Afternoon

“All men fear death. It’s a natural fear that consumes us all. We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same. However, when you make love with a truly great woman, one that deserves the utmost respect in this world and one that makes you feel truly powerful, that fear of death completely disappears. Because when you are sharing your body and heart with a great woman the world fades away. You two are the only ones in the entire universe. You conquer what most lesser men have never conquered before, you have conquered a great woman’s heart, the most vulnerable thing she can offer to another. Death no longer lingers in the mind. Fear no longer clouds your heart. Only passion for living, and for loving, become your sole reality. This is no easy task for it takes insurmountable courage. But remember this, for 
that moment when you are making love with a woman of true greatness you will feel immortal.”
-Ernest Hemingway, ‘Midnight in Paris’

"They made me go and talk to this counsellor woman who kept saying ‘But why Elizabeth, why do you think you withheld speech?’. I used to just say ‘I dunno’ til it was time to go home. 
But I did know. Sort of.
Okay. So. Paris Hilton isn’t an It Girl. Clara Bow  was an It Girl. She was one of the biggest silent film stars ever. The  Brooklyn Bonfire. I think we’re really similar. She’s a brunette. I’m a  brunette. Her Dad was mentally impaired. My Dad is mentally impaired.  She was really good at poker. I’m really good at poker. She married a  cowboy. I don’t think I’m getting married but if I did it would probably  be to a cowboy.
Anyway, basically she was the best film star, like, ever.
But then the talkies started, and the films weren’t silent any more. And it would be fine, except when Clara actually had to speak,  she just froze. She couldn’t stop looking at the microphones pushed at  her face. She got mike fright. She retired at the age of 26 and never  made another film ever again.
But even though Clara Bow couldn’t deal with talking in public, and Paris Hilton could probably talk for fucking hours about fucking anything, I reckon if Clara Bow met Paris Hilton, she’d punch her lights out.
But I don’t think the counsellor woman would have really understood that.”

"J’ai deux amours Mon pays et Paris Par eux toujours Mon cœur est ravi Ma savane est belle Mais à quoi bon le nier Ce qui m’ensorcelle C’est Paris, Paris tout entier Le voir un jour C’est mon rêve joli J’ai deux amours Mon pays et Paris…”

"J’ai deux amours
Mon pays et Paris
Par eux toujours
Mon cœur est ravi
Ma savane est belle
Mais à quoi bon le nier
Ce qui m’ensorcelle
C’est Paris, Paris tout entier
Le voir un jour
C’est mon rêve joli
J’ai deux amours
Mon pays et Paris…”
