“I was being unselfish for selfish reasons.”
– Pushing Daisies, Episode 1, Season 1
I like that line a lot (the context makes it even better, but I don’t want to give the show away. Also I don’t want to write that much). I would say the show is very “sweet” (as in nice, not as in “sweet!” – like you’d say when you found out you still have a doughnut left).
“He’s the idealist, he’s the dreamer of a beautiful dream, and even if the dream doesn’t come true it’s rather thrilling to have dreamt it.”
– The Razor’s Edge, W. Somerset Maugham
I highly recommend that book. Also, I’m sure there are a lot of would-be writers, musicians, whatevers really – who are dreaming about something until the day it comes true.
Lord have mercy I am sentimental today. I’m going to go swear at some old ladies and push down children.
