|Bette Davis has to be hands down my favorite actress (and I love Claude Rains too) and her movie, Now Voyager also one of my favorites. I didn't realize until recently that the movie was based on a book by Olive Higgins Prouty (she also wrote Stella Dallas) and I was delighted to find it in our library. I just finished reading it and love it. What's great about it is that it fleshes out the movie perfectly and I was reading it with the voices of the actors in the movies in my mind. I was also surprised at how closely the movie followed the book!
If you love the movie you need to read the book.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
