Then what is it? Some aimless infatuation which, for the moment, you feel like indulging - it's missing everything that matters. Trust, responsibility, taking the weight for your choices and feelings, and spending the rest of your life living up to them.
And above all, not hurting the object of your love. So that's what love is according to William Parrish? Multiply it by infinity, and take it to the depth of forever, and you will still have barely a glimpse of what I'm talking about.
It's not what you say about Drew, it's what you don't say. Maybe you're not listening. Oh yes, I am. There's not an ounce of excitement. Not a whisper of a thrill.
This relationship has all the passion of a pair of tit mice. I want you to get swept away out there.
I want you to levitate. I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a Dervish. Be deliriously happy or at least leave yourself open to be. I shall do my utmost.
I know it's a cornball thing, but love is passion. Someone you can't live without. I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy, and who'll love you the same way back.
How do you you find 'em? Well, you forget your head and you listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. But you have to try, because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. I thought I was going to sneak away tonight. What a glorious night. Every face I see is a memory.
It may not be a perfectly perfect memory. Sometimes we had our ups and downs. But we're all together, and you're mine for a night. And I'm going to break precedent and tell you my one candle wish: Don't they go by in a blink?
It's hard to let go, isn't it? William Parrish[ edit ] Don't blow smoke up my ass, you'll ruin my autopsy.

I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish. You're just a kid in a suit. I did enjoy -- or rather I was interested in meeting John Bontecou, yesterday. And -- impressive, I suppose. But, it did get me to thinking. See, I started in this business because this is what I wanted to do. I knew I wasn't going to write the great American novel, but I also knew there was more to life than buying something for a dollar and selling it for two.
I'd hoped to create something, something which could be held to the highest standards. And what I realized was I wanted to give the news to the world, and I wanted to give it unvarnished. The more we all know about each other, the greater the chance we will survive. Sure, I want to make a profit. You can't exist without one. But John Bontecou is all profit. Now if we give him license to absorb Parrish Communications, and he has his eye on a few others after us, in order to reach the world you will have to go through John Bontecou.
And not only will you have to pay him to do this, far more important, you'll have to agree with him. Reporting the news is a privilege and a responsibility, and it is not exploitable. Parrish Communications has earned this privilege. John Bontecou wants to buy it. As your Chairman, I urge you to agree this company is not for sale.
Easy Bill, you'll give yourself a heart attack and ruin my vacation. Thank you for loving me. I can't believe you people. I come for you, and you want to stay, I let you stay and you want to go. Make no mistake, should you choose to test my resolve in this matter, you will be looking at an outcome that will have a finality that is beyond your comprehension, and you will not be counting the days, or the months, or the years, but millenniums, in a place with no doors.
You got enough nice pictures?
Others[ edit ] Allison: I should have my head examined again. Love, passion, obsession, all those things you told me to wait for, well, they've arrived. What are you afraid of, Dad? That I'll fall head over heels for Joe?
Meet Joe Black Quotes
It nice it happen to you. Like you come to the island and had a holiday. Sun didn't burn you red-red, just brown. You sleep and no mosquito eat you. But the truth is, it bound to happen if you stay long enough. So take that nice picture you got in your head home with you, but don't be fooled. We lonely here mostly too. If we lucky, maybe, we got some nice pictures to take with us.
I'm here William Parrish: What is this a joke, right? Some kind of elaborate practical joke? Heh, at my fortieth reunion we delivered a casket to the class presidents hotel room and uh-- Death: Where are you going, Bill?
The great Bill Parrish at a loss of words? The man from whose lips fall "rapture" and "passion" and "obsession"? All those admonitions about being "deliriously happy, that there is no sense in living your life without" all the sparks and energy you give off, the rosy advice you dispense in round pear shaped tones.
What the hell is this? Just think of millenniums, multiplied by eons, compounded by time without end. I've been around that long.
