Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.
This is my favorite movie and I could have chosen many quotes from this film. This one, however, is such a true reminder of what is important in life. Relationships trump everything else. Whenever you get down or discouraged, just think about the important people in your life.
It is our annual family Christmas tradition to watch “Love Actually”. At this point, we all recite the lines along with the actors. The quote above is such a beautiful introduction to a funny, touching movie with so many little intertwining stories. Love, love love this movie.
