It Was Exactly Like Waking from a Dream

Station_ElevenSad to finish Station Eleven last night. Definitely one of my all time faves. I didn’t want it to end. Some of my favorite quotes;

“She started to explain her project to him again but the words stopped in her throat. “You don’t have to understand it,” she said. “It’s mine.”

“We traveled so far and your friendship meant everything. It was very difficult, but there were moments of beauty. Everything ends. I’m not afraid.”

“She was thinking about the way she’d always taken for granted that the world had certain people in it, either central to her days or unseen and infrequently thought of. How without any one of these people the world is a subtly but unmistakably altered place, the dial turned just one or two degrees.”

“What was it like for you at the end?”… “It was exactly like waking up from a dream.”

“If nothing else, it’s pleasant to consider the possibility. He likes the thought of ships moving out over the water, toward another world just out of sight.”
