“Captain Corelli's Mandolin” Quotes 11 quotes
“When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.”
“- Captain Antonio Corelli: Do you miss me?
- Pelagia: So much that I can't sleep at night.”
“I tried to live without you. I tried to make myself believe I could live without you.”
“- Pelagia: You fall in love with the person, not the body.
- Drosoula: Love enters by the eyes and also leaves by the eyes.”
“Sometimes it is better to lose than to have so much blood on your hands.”
“I don't know how to describe my feelings. It's as if I have been waiting a hundred years to hear from you, waiting a hundred years for you to return. Once, my heart was overflowing with love for you, but now all I feel is emptiness. And I think it was all just a pretense, that I never loved you at all.”
“Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away.”
