Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004): Quotes from “Bartlett’s”
This scene always jumps out at me. I tend to forget about it until I find myself getting sucked into it when I watch the film. It’s a quiet moment away from all of the chasing going on in the background. It’s a time to reflect and gives you a breath after all of the panic going on.
Unfortunately I can’t find the scene on YouTube anymore, but here’s part of the dialogue:
Mary (Kirsten Dunst): Anyway, the quote goes “How happy is the blameless Vestal’s lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each prayer accepted, and each wish resign’d”.
