Sophie's letter to Claire

taken from the movie : Letters to Juliet (2010) 

"'What' and ‘if’ two words as nonthreatening as words come. 
But put them together side-by-side and 
they have the power to haunt you for the
rest of your life: ‘What if?'..."

"I don't know how your story ended.
But I know that if what you felt then was love - true love - then
it's never too late. If it was true then it why wouldn't it be true
now? You need only the courage to follow your heart..."

"I don't know what a love like that feels like... a love to leave loved
ones for, a love to cross oceans for... but I'd like to believe if I
ever felt it. I'd have the courage to seize it. I hope you had the
courage to seize it, Claire. And if you didn't, I hope one day that you will."
