Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

you can learn from:

Ennis: I'm gonna tell you this one time, Jack fuckin Twist, an' I ain't foolin'. What I don't know -all them things that I don't know- could get you killed if I come to know them. I ain't jokin'.
Jack: Yeah well try this one, and I'll say it just once! 
Ennis: Go ahead! 
Jack: Tell you what, we coulda had a good life together! Fuckin' real good life! Had us a place of our own. But you didn't want it, Ennis! So what we got now is Brokeback Mountain! Everything's built on that! That's all we got, boy, fuckin' all. So I hope you know that, even if you don't never know the rest! You count the damn few times we have been together in nearly twenty years and you measure the short fucking leash you keep me on - and then you ask me about Mexico and tell me you'll kill me for needing somethin' I don't hardly never get. You have no idea how bad it gets! I'm not you... I can't make it on a coupla high-altitude fucks once or twice a year! You are too much for me Ennis, you sonofawhoreson bitch! I wish I knew how to quit you. 
Ennis: Well, why don't you? Why don't you just let me be? It's because of you Jack, that I'm like this! I'm nothin'... I'm nowhere... Get the fuck off me! I can't stand being like this no more, Jack.
Happy Valentines, everybody!

I still love this movie so much. I choke up every time I think about Ennis holding those shirts.

How appropriate to read this, just as I'm watching God's Own Country, which is a British version of the same story.

Just reading that dialogue had me crying again, dammit.... "It's your fault I'm like this."
