A Walk to Remember (2002)
Peter Coyote: Reverend Sullivan
Reverend Sullivan : "Do not be deceived. God is not mocked." Hmmm.
[Landon walks into the Church as Reverend Sullivan is practicing his sermon]
Reverend Sullivan : "Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap..." Can I help you?
Landon : Uh, yes, sir. I'd like to ask your daughter to dinner on Saturday night.
Reverend Sullivan : That's not possible.
Landon : Well... with all due respect, sir, I ask you to reconsider.
Reverend Sullivan : With all due respect, Mr. Carter, I made my decision. You can, uh, exit the way you entered.
Landon : Listen, I'm sorry I haven't treated Jamie the way I should've. She deserves more than that. I'm just asking you for the same thing that you teach us every day in Church. And that's faith.
Reverend Sullivan : [Exhales deeply]
[at the hospital]
Reverend Sullivan : Do you remember when you were about five or six and you said you hated gravity? And you wanted to jump off the roof and fly?
Jamie : I was so angry at you for making me come down.
Reverend Sullivan : Honey, if I kept you too close it's because I wanted to keep you longer. You know, when I lost your mother, I was afraid that my heart would never open again. Jamie, I couldn't look at you for days.
Reverend Sullivan : Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's shortcomings but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.
[Apostle Paul; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7]
