“Lilly: What’s a soulmate?
Dawson: It’s a.. Well, it’s like a best friend, but more. It’s the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It’s someone who makes you a better person, well, actually they don’t make you a better person… you do that yourself— because they inspire you. A soulmate is someone who you carry with you forever. It’s the one person who knew you, and accepted you, and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens.. you’ll always love them.”—Duh.
“So yeah… maybe we didn’t talk much this spring, and who knows maybe we’ll find ourselves talking less and less as time goes on and life gets more and more in the way. But, I don’t feel it, cause you’re with me everywhere I go.”—
i wonder what love is like. is it really all its cracked up to be? does it fade or do you wake up one day and you've just fallen out of it? does it really last forever sometimes? does it really exist, or do we invent it and convince ourselves it exists to cope with the loneliness of being one in six billion?
“The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don’t wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules. Anyway… I’ve started to make a tape… in my head… for Laura. Full of stuff she likes. Full of stuff that’ll make her happy. For the first time I can sort of see how that is done.”—High Fidelity, of course.
