Knight of Cups (2015)
Joseph: You think when you reach a certain age things will start making sense, and you find out that you are just as lost as you were before. I suppose that's what damnation is. The pieces of your life never to come together, just splashed out there.
(voice): Once the soul was perfect and had wings, it could sour into haven that only creatures with wings can be. But the soul lost its wings and fell to earth where it took a earthly body, now, while it lives in this body no outward sign of wings can be seen yet the roots of its wings are still there... and we see a beautiful woman or a man, the soul remembers the beauty it used to know in haven, and begins to spout and that makes the soul want to fly but it cannot yet it is still too weak so that man keeps staring up to the sky at a young bird, he lost all interest in the world around...
Della: You don't want love, you want a love experience.
Rick: You gave me peace. You gave me what the world can't give. Mercy. Love. Joy. All else is cloud. Mist. Be with me. Always.
Rick: All those years, living the live of someone I didn't even know.
Rick: [voice over] I spent 30 years... not living life... but ruining it... for myself... and others... I can't remember... the man... I wanted to be...
Rick: See the palm trees? They tell you anything's possible.
Fr. Zeitlinger: Seems you're alone. You're not. Even now, He's taking your hand and guiding you by a way you cannot see. If you're unhappy, you shouldn't take it as a mark of God's disfavor. Just the contrary. Might be the very sign He loves you. He shows His love not by helping you avoid suffering, by sending you suffering. By keeping you there. To suffer binds you to something higher than yourself, higher than your own will. Takes you from the world, to find what lies beyond it. We are not only to endure patiently the troubles He sends, we are to regard them as gifts. As gifts more precious than the happiness we wish for ourselves.
Della: Let's live like nobody has done it before... wicked.
Della: We're not leading the lives we are meant for... we're meant for something else.
Tonio: Treat this world as it deserves, there are no principles, just circumstances. Nobody's home.
Model Agency Woman: You're like a 1975 housewife who takes steroids and fucks girls during the day.
Elizabeth: You're so quiet. You keep everything to yourself. You have love in you. I know it. When I'm with you, I forget everything else.
Elizabeth: You're afraid you're making me break my vows. But the vows comes out of the love behind it. Love's so rare that when you find it you can't doubt it. Let it go.
Nancy: You're still the love of my life. Should I tell you that?
Joseph: Remember the story I used to tell you when you were a boy, about a young prince, sent by his father, the king of the east, to find a pearl?
Karen: [dancing in a night club in a sexy outfit] You live in a little fantasy world, don't you ?
Rick: [watching her] Are you ?
Karen: Because it's so much more fun...
Rick: Enjoy yours ?
Karen: [she nods smiling] Changes every day... I can be whatever I wanna be... Don't forget that... You can be whoever you want to be...
[laughs, kisses him, smiles]
Karen: You can be an asshole. You can be a saint...
Rick: Save what you can of your life. Don't lose it all just because you've lost a part.
Tonio: They are like flavors. Sometimes you want raspberry, then after a while you want some strawberry.
Scott: Living my life is like playing Call of Duty on easy. I just go around and fuck shit up.
Barry: Same today? Don't know how many times I thought I'd die right here on the street. I picked him up and I had him in my car, and a cop pulled us over. I tell him, "I'm a Methodist minister and I'm looking after you, alright?" And I got off.
