"The character Romeo was one of the earliest rebels. He rebelled against his entire family for love and I thought that was a profound sort of thing. Once I started getting into it I realized the sort of ballsy guy he was by marrying Juliet and saying no to his family and all his friends just for this girl. She tells him "Alright if you love me, then marry me. Let’s see what you’ve got." He does it and risks his whole life for it. He was a great character." — Leonardo DiCaprio on portraying Romeo Montague

We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.
