"She’s in the middle, yet she’s outside.

Maybe she’s just different.”

"In what way?"

"I don’t know."

"When she was little, she rarely played with other kids. Maybe never."

(I should remember to re-watch Amelie everytime I lose hope in myself. Amelie reminds me how beautiful it is to be different; how it is perfectly okay if the reality I see and live doesn’t quite correspond to the rational, linear ones of others. All are right. Weird is lovely. Weird is magical. I have optimism in imagination and in “cultivating those small pleasures.” 

Also, I wish there were more films that illustrate how delightful a single, imaginative life can be. Even if Amelie ends up finding love, I am repeatedly inspired by how fervent a character she is, finding strength not from others but from an extraordinary faith in herself.)
