I saw the new James Bond movie this past weekend and of course like most of you out there, I loved it. The story, the special effects, the Omega Seamaster, Daniel Craig, beautiful British accents, breathtaking views and fantastic cars…I was hooked.
But the one thing that completely captured my heart was when James Bond simply says: “I’d recognize you anywhere.” I won’t give any spoilers about who the statement is directed towards or the scene that it’s part of as I believe there’s some magic in that smile I’m sure we all got (or will get) when seeing that scene and hearing that line, but I will say that it’s one of the most beautiful statements of love I’ve heard in a movie.
While my all time favorite will still remain Jack Nicholson’s line from “As Good As It Gets”: “You make me want to be a better man.” Daniel Craig’s definitely makes the list. It got me thinking about all the trials and tribulations of life and the people we choose to keep close in our hearts and our minds no matter what. In a way, he’s just saying that no matter what happens in his life, no matter where life takes him, she will always be in a place of his heart that cannot be touched by anything on the outside.
When you look at your life, who are the people your heart would recognize anywhere, regardless of what happens to your life, where you are, who you’re with and what are you doing? Do they know you’d recognize them anywhere?
