Ten Commandment (1956): Moses & Sephora

Moses & Sephora


She was very beautiful, wasn’t she?
This woman of Egypt who left her scar upon your heart.
Her skin was white as curd.
Her eyes, green as the cedars of Lebanon.
Her lips, tamarisk honey.
Like the breast of a dove, her arms were soft.
And the wine of desire was in her veins.


Yes. She was beautiful… as a jewel.


A jewel has brilliant fire, but gives no warmth.
Our hands are not so soft, but they can serve.
Our bodies not so white, but they are strong.
Our lips are not perfumed… but they speak the truth.
Love is not an art to us.
It’s life to us.
We are not dressed in gold and fine linen.
Strength and honor are our clothing.
Our tents are not the columned halls of Egypt, but our children play happily before them.
We can offer you little… but we offer all we have.


I have not little, Sephora. I have nothing.


Nothing from some is more than gold from others.


You would fill the emptiness of my heart?


I could never fill all of it, Moses. But I shall not be jealous of a memory.


“If you’d known this was going to happen, would you have done it?”

City of Angels (1998), this generation might not know much about this movie.. It’s a romatic drama about an angel, Seth (Nicholas Cage) who fall in love to a woman, Maggie (Meg Ryan). And to be with the woman he love, he gave up eternity to live as a mortal with her.

After he became a mortal, they fall in love with each other, but tragicly, their happiness is not for long. Maggie die in an accident.

Knowing that, Seth’s friend, an angel ask him:

If you’d known this was going to happen… would you have done it?

Seth replied:

I would rather have had…
…one breath of her hair…
…one kiss of her mouth…
…one touch of her hand…
…than an eternity without it.

I know, logicly in real life, it’s wrong! But, romantic … yes.

The idea is… If you met someone that makes you happy, but in the end, you found that you can’t be together and that gives you a great grieves. If you have a chance go back in time. Will you avoid of meeting her? Will you avoid falling in love on her so that you wouldn’t get hurt?

If I do, I would go back in time, meet her, and love her more. I’ll make every seconds count.
