Ted Demme | Blow (2001)

Diego: I knew you were a magico. (...) Do you know, in my country I'm a magico... a man with a dream (...) a man on the rise... to take nothing and make it something. Do you have a dream, George? (...) You have a dream. And maybe you will accomplish it. But yet you failed. Why?
George: Because I got caught.
Diego: No, manito. You failed because you had the wrong dream.


So, in the end, was it worth it? Jesus Christ, how irreparably changed my life has become. It's always the last day of summer and I've been left out in the cold with no door to get back in. I'll grant you, I've had more than my share of poignant moments. Life passes most people by while they're making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime I've left pieces of my heart here and there and now there's almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent. There are no more white horses or pretty ladies at my door.

May the wind always be at your back and the sun always upon your face and the winds of destiny to carry you aloft to dance with the stars.
(Irish blessing)
