Traci Levine: Thank God she's leaving!

Lila Montagne: Good! It's vital for a man to have a couple of slugs in him before discussing heartache. I think Hemingway told me that.
Christian Markelli: You knew Ernest Hemingway?
Lila Montagne: Margaux, actually. But beauties don't always escape tragedy.
Christian Markelli: Oh, God, this is hell! I've done something... I'm guilty. And I'll burn for it.
Lila Montagne: Funny thing about guilt: There's nothing so bad that you can't add a little guilt to it and make it worse; and there's nothing so good you can't add guilt to it and make it better. Guilt distracts us from a greater truth: we have an inherent ability to heal. We seem intent on living through even the worst heartbreak.
Christian Markelli: How?
Lila Montagne: Hm. Practice.

Elder Aaron Davis: Do you ever read the Sunday comics?
Lila Montagne: [confused] I beg your pardon?
Elder Aaron Davis: The, the, comic page?

But I like to think that from Gods prospective, life, everything, even this, makes sense. It's not just dots. Instead we're all, we're all connected, and it's beautiful and it's funny and it's good. From this close we, we can't expect it to make sense, right now.
