from letters to juliet

"'What' and ‘if’ two words as nonthreatening as words come.
But put them together side-by-side
and they have the power to haunt you
for the rest of your life:
‘What if?'..."

"I don't know how your story ended.
But I know that
if what you felt then was love -true love-
then it's never too late.
If it was true then
why wouldn't it be true now?
You need only the courage to follow your heart..."

"I don't know what a love like that feels like...
a love to leave loved ones for,
a love to cross oceans for...
but I'd like to believe if I ever felt it.
I'd have the courage to seize it.
I hope you had the courage to seize it, Claire.
And if you didn't,
I hope one day that you will."

--Sophie's letter to Claire--
