Death is the mother of beauty,” said Henry.
"And what is beauty?"
"Terror."
"Well said," said Julian. "Beauty is rarely soft or consolatory. Quite the contrary. Genuine beauty is always quite alarming."
I looked at Camilla, her face bright in the sun, and though of that line from the Iliad I love so much, about Pallas Athene and the terrible eyes shining. 
"And if beauty is terror," said Julian, "then what is desire? We think we have many desires, but in fact we have only one. What is it?"
"To live," said Camilla.
"To live forever,” said Bunny, chin cupped in palm.
The teakettle began to whistle.

 Leo and I just hung on to each other for dear life. We had cigarettes hidden in the pockets of our costumes and the two of us literally were having conversations like ‘What would happen if we died?’ and I’d say things like ‘Leo, I love you, I really do love you so much. You are a very important person to me and I’d have your babies. I would, I’d have your babies, really, it’s fine - Kate Winslet.
Friends are very important to me, and it comes with the territory of being in this business that sometimes you’re going to meet people who aren’t as genuine as they might seem. we all deal with that, and one way of doing it is to focus on the people you know are dependable, people you know you can trust. Kate is one of those - Leonardo DiCaprio.
