The following conversation is from the fantastic, beautiful movie Ever After.
Danielle: Is something wrong?
Henry: [turns to face her] In all my years of study, not one tutor ever demonstrated the passion you have shown me in the last two days. You have more conviction in one memory than I have... in my entire being.
[laughs slightly, walks away, Danielle follows]
Danielle: Your Highness, if there is anything I have said or done...
Henry: Please... don't. It's not you.
Henry: I'm afraid, mademoiselle, you are a walking contradiction... ..and I find that rather fascinating.
Prince: Yes, you. You spout the ideals of a Utopian society, yet you live the life of a courtier.
Danielle: You own all the land there is, yet you take no pride in working it. Is that not also a contradiction?
Prince: First I'm arrogant, and now I have no pride. However do I manage that?
Danielle: You have everything, and still the world holds no joy. Yet you make fun of those who would see it for its possibilities.
Prince: How do you do it?
Prince: Live each day with this kind of passion? Don't you find it exhausting?
Danielle: Only when I'm around you. Why do you like to irritate me so?
Prince: Why do you rise to the occasion?
He asks how she can live each day with that kind of passion.
And I often wonder: how can he not?
