...inst his chest as though he were praying. "I ask the questions in this classroom. If that's all right with you, Mr. Thaler?" Dex shrugged as if to say, have it your way, makes no difference to me. "Well, let's suppose that I accidentally dropped my paper onto your desk, and you returned it and were injured. Would Mr. Cardozo allow you full recovery?" "Sure." "And why is that?" Dex sighed to show that the exercise was boring him and then said swiftly and clearly, "Because it was entirely foreseeable that the dynamite could cause injury to me.

I've found out about the book through the movie so of course, being one of my favourite films, I just had to go read the book that inspired it. Everyone knows there are going to be obvious deviations that the producers and screenwriters do for time and the flow of the movie, but I was a little disappointed that they actually made up the whole Ethan/Claire saga. I laughed the most during their scenes so I give big kudos to John Krasinski and Ashley Williams for their hilarious portrayals. Anyway, the book made me wonder, what if the subject happened to you? How you would go about the situation? Whether it is right or wrong to go after your true love while betraying your best friend in the process? Or is it ever okay putting someone else's happiness above your own when that friend never truly loved the person you're giving up to them? There are definitely a lot of pros and cons to both questions... Personally, I would never let my soul mate get away... lucky for me, he wasn't dating any friends of mine when I pursued him =]
