Midnight in Paris
Hemingway: Are you afraid of death? If you are a writer, surely you cannot be afraid of dying.
Gil: Actually, I’m very afraid of death... it’s probably my biggest fear.
Hemingway: Well, I don’t see why. It’s something all man has done before, and all man will do. Have you ever made passionate love to a truly good, beautiful woman?
Gil: Well, my fiancee is pretty sexy.

Gil: No sir, definitely not.
Hemingway: When you are truly in love, when you make love, you will feel immortal. Then you must make love again. And again.
