Every day, you ride the bus and count the minutes, hoping you’ll see her again. She smiles, and you feel a strange tingle up the back of your neck. Something carnal inside of you causes your body to break out in sweats. You feel like the luckiest man in the world. She sits alone, just like every other day, and looks out the window lost in her thoughts. You know that look. She’s just as alone as you are. But she doesn’t have to be. You could talk to her. Tell her you’d love to sit next to her today and every other day, because life is short, and no one deserves to ride the bus alone.

A Room with a View (1985) dir. James Ivory

“And as for your loving me, no, you don’t, Cecil, not really. You don’t. It’s only as something else. As something you own. A painting, a Leonardo. I don’t want to be a Leonardo, I want to be myself.”
