Some people were born to sit by a river. Some get struck by lightning. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers. And some people, dance. -Benjamin Button
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” -Benjamin Button
The short story, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was first published in 1922 in Colliers Magazine and later anthologized in a book of Fitzgerald’s called, Tales of the Jazz Age.
The above two quotes, often attributed to Fitzgerald’s were in fact written by Eric Roth who wrote the screenplay for the movie, released in 2008.
