Running through The Louvre, from Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers. 
Today the filmmaker turns 74. And to this day The Louvre forbids running.

everything-is-true asked - "What's a movie that you like to quote to people? If you can't think of one, is there any line of dialogue from a movie or book or TV show you wish you were famous for saying/writing? I was going to be anon but...well maybe not today."

First, what a great question thank you dearly!

Well, this is hard. I like so very many movies but ones such as Shrek, which I really do adore, are not ones I go about quoting often as a source of inspirational writing. I really love some lines in Gone with the Wind, albeit a common answer to such a question, it is a fantastic film. I feel like the answer to this question is on the tip of my tongue and I just can’t think of what it is.
Books are a little easier, there are some incredible paragraphs and lines which I have absolutely fallen in love with in On the Road by Jack Kerouac (although I haven’t finished reading it), which I wish very dearly that I had written, or had such a talent to do so similarly.
Also in Emma by Jane Austen there are some utterly stunning lines and paragraphs; her way of phrasing things is unlike anything I have seen in its perfection. Even though that book isn’t an easy one to get through and the language is not always forgiving, it is a beautifully written novel and has earned it’s fame from that, not the status of its author.
One I particularly adore is “The youth and cheerfulness of morning are in happy analogy, and of powerful operation; and if the distress not be poignant enough to keep the eyes unclosed, they will be sure to open to sensations of softened pain and brighter hope”.
