“So you failed. Alright you really failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You think I care about that? I do understand. You wanna be really great? Then have the courage to fail big and stick around. Make them wonder why you’re still smiling.”

“Sadness is easier because its surrender. I say make time to dance alone with one hand waving free.”

This film is still one of my top ten favourites of all-time, and Cameron Crowe is definitely one of those great directors/writers who kept churning out great films.
