Quotes from 'Memoirs of a Geisha'

From my 2006 Diary: These are quotes from the movie 'Memoirs of a Geisha', pl do correct in case of any mistakes..
  • "You cannot read loss, you can only feel it" (When Sayuri, as a little girl is being read the news of her parents' death)
  • "Don't be afraid to look at me" (Twice spoken by the Chairman to Sayuri 1. as a little girl on the bridge, 2. as a Geisha when he reveals his efforts towards her)
  • "The heart dies a slow death, shedding each hope like leaves until one day there are none, no hopes; nothing remains."
  • "She paints her face to hide her face, her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want, it is not for Geisha to feel. Geisha is the artist of a floating world."
  • "She dances, she sings, she entertains you, very way you want. The rest is shadows; the rest is secret"
  • "You cannot say to the sun, more sun; nor to the rain, less rain."
  • "To a man, Geisha can only be a half wife. We are the wives of the nightfall."
  • "To learn of kindness after so much unkindness; to understand that the little girl has more courage than she knew; would find her prayers were answered, can that not be called happiness? After all, these are not memoirs of an empress, nor of a queen, these are memoirs of another kind"
This was one very good movie.. can watch it again, anytime!
