I saw my life as if I’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 I was standing at a great precipice with no one to pull me back. No one who cared, or even noticed.
I remember, when I was a kid,
we went ice fishing out on Lake Wissota. Ice fishing is, you know, where you…. I know what ice fishing is.
April 13th, 1912 ➝ Jack and Rose meet, and he talks her down from the railing.
Anyway, I, uh, I fell through some thin ice; and 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. Which is why I’m not looking forward to jumping in there after you. Like I said, I don’t have a choice. I guess I’m kinda hoping you’ll come back over the railing, an’ get me off the hook here. You’re crazy. That’s what everybody says but, with all due respect, Miss, I’m not the one hanging off the back of a ship here. Come on. C’mon, give me your hand. You don’t want to do this.

There was a man named Jack Dawson, and he saved me… in every way that a person can be saved. I don’t even have a picture of him. He exists now only in my memory.
How cold? Freezing. Maybe a couple degrees over.
