Becoming Jane

I am quite aware that absolutely no one will care for this, so I am saving it only for myself - quotes that I am fond of from the movie Becoming Jane.  A re-watching of this film has made it clear that it is vital I read the novel it was based on.

Tom Lefroy: What value would there be in life, if we were not together?

Mr. Wisley: 'Yet' - such a sad word

Tom Lefroy: How can you, of all people, dispose of yourself without affection? 

Mr: Wisely: Sometimes affection is a shy flower that takes time to blossom. 

Tom Lefroy: I am yours. Heart and soul, I am yours. Much good that is.
Jane Austen: I will decide that. 

Tom Lefroy: No, I will never give you up...don't speak or think. Just love me. Do you love me?
Jane Austen: Yes, but if our love destroys your family, it will destoy itself
Tom Lefroy: No
Jane Austen: Yes, in a long slow degradation of guilt and regret and blame
Tom Lefroy: That is nonsense.
Jane Austen: Truth. Made from contradiction.  But it must come with a smile.  Or else I shall count it as false and we shall have had no love at all.

John Warren: And the famous Mrs. Radcliffe, is she as Gothic as her novels?
Jane Austen: Not in externals. But her internal landscape is, I suspect, quite picturesque.
Mr. Wisley: True of us all. 

Eliza De Feuillide: Flirting is a woman's trade, one must keep in practice 

I believe one reason I find myself drawn to the quotes in this movie is because it really makes you question how much you need for a relationship to work.  We'd all like to believe love is so simple - and truly, I used to be of the mind that it can conquer anything, but alas life has taught me otherwise.  Love only needs itself to exist, yet a relationship needs far more than love to survive.  Knowing this does not make that particular truth any easier to live with.
