Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Caught the movie with G last wednesday. It's a wonderfully brilliant film that exposes how man cannot but hold on tenaciously to the memories of his life experiences that define who he is. And above this, it reminds us that love is a great thing that cannot be stamped out.

Kirsten Dunst's character quotes these lines from a poem by Alexander Pope titled "Eloisa to Abelard":

How happy is the blameless Vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd.
