To ancient evenings and distant music…

Oh, no!

The words were inside of me.

I was wrong, Robert. I was wrong to stay, but I can’t go. Let me tell you again why I can’t go. Tell me again why I should go.

I heard his voice coming back to me: “This kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime.”

(Meryl Streep in “The Bridges of Madison County” by Clint Eastwood, 1995)

Ich kann nicht wählen!

– Shut up, enough! I told you to shut up. Make a choice.

– Don’t make me choose! I can’t!

– I’ll send them both over there!

– I can’t choose!

– Take both children away! Move!

– Take my little girl! Take my baby!

(Karlheinz Hackl and Meryl Streep in “Sophie’s Choice” by Alan J. Pakula, 1982)
