Titanic (1997) | dir. James Cameron
Titanic (1997) starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
I saw my whole life
as if l’d already lived it; an endless parade
of parties and cotillions, yachts and polo matches; always the same narrow people,
the same mindless chatter.
I felt like l was standing
at a great precipice
with no one to pull me back
no one who cared
or even noticed.
I’m telling you, water that cold, like right down there? It hits you like a thousand knives stabbing you all over your body. You can’t breathe. You can’t think– at least not about anything but the pain.
i figure life’s a gift and i don’t intend to waste it. you don’t know what hand you’ll be dealt next. you learn to take life as it comes to you … to make each day count.
