The Thorn Birds movie 25 | I can live forever on those few days

Quotes from film part 25

We missed you, Meggie. Anne's dying to see you. Go ahead. I'll get your bag. Wait till you see little Justine. Jussie remembers me all right. Ralph did come, didn't he? What was I to do? When he saw you weren't here, I thought the man would die. He already looked like he'd been haunting houses as well. I thought maybe he might even mean to give it all up for you. And you can still look so happy. I'll never have what you and Luddie have together. But I can live forever on those few days with Ralph if I have to. Far better that, than watching him grow to hate me more each day for keeping him from what he thinks he needs. You'll be leaving us. Yes. Welcome back to Rome. You have chosen. You said I must if I'm to go on in the Church. But having chosen how can I go on? I have broken all my vows. You went to the rose. Yes. I never felt such ecstasy in God's presence as I felt with her. I found a pleasure in her I never dreamed existed. Not just in her body but because I love to be with her smile at her talk with her share her food, share her thoughts. I wanted never to leave her. But you left her. You found the strength to leave her. But I haven't let go of her. That's what wounds me, and I don't know how to heal myself! Perhaps you're not meant to. Perhaps that wound has saved you. Do you remember the Greek story of Hippolytus? The play we saw in Athens. He was killed because he couldn't love. No. Because he was too proud to love. Too arrogant to count himself among mortal men. Yes, your vows are broken. But so, too, let us hope, is that proud spirit that kept you from the thing you wanted most. You see one cannot truly be a priest without the humility to understand that one is first a man. When you think of your rose think that it was she that led you to understand that. No. To see her only as some means of saving me would be the greatest arrogance of all. She loves, Vittorio, despite everything. And with a singleness of mind and heart. If only I could love like that. How can I ever thank you? You've been more like parents to me than my own were. Rubbish! We'll be down to see you in Drogheda one day. Won't we, Luddie? I wouldn't mind having a look at it. Come on, Jussie. Hold onto him. There are few enough like him. Thank God! The outfit's perfect, Meggie. Wish I could see the farewell performance! Bye. Take him down! That's a takedown! Take me to Dungloe station. Mail truck's coming! Good! I hope he's brought my pastry flour. Bob, Jack, it's me! I'm home! Meggie, what are you doing here? Oh, my God! Mrs. Cleary! Mrs. Cleary, come! Meggie, it's you! You've come back! What a surprise! What have we here? Wouldn't you tell a person you were coming? Look at this little angel. Where's Luke? Coming later, no doubt. Mom, I've come back. To stay. So you've left Luke then? He didn't want me. Or his children. Children? Yes. I'm going to have another baby.
