Quote of the Day

General Lorenz Lowenhielm: I have been with you every day of my life. Tell me you know that.

Martina: Yes, I know it.

Lowenhielm: You must also know that I shall be with you every day that is granted to me from now on. Every evening I shall sit down to dine with you. Not with my body, which is of no importance, but with my soul. Because this evening I have learned, my dear, that in this beautiful world of ours, all things are possible.

Jarl Kulle as General Lorens Löwenhielm and Birgitte Federspiel as Martina in Babette's Feast (1987)

I adore Babette's Feast. It speaks to me on so many levels.

You know, this is was a wonderful quote for me to read, as it helps me to cope with the distance I feel at all times to someone important to me...

Protege: It must be very hard, I hope the quote helps! :)

Phil: Yes indeed! I might have to blog about that. Any suggestions?
