Jackie

Jackie Kennedy: I believe the characters we read on the page become more real than the men who stand beside us.

Jackie Kennedy: I never wanted fame. I just became a Kennedy.

Jackie Kennedy: I value my privacy. I always have.

Jackie Kennedy: I will march with Jack, alone if necessary

Jackie Kennedy: I wrote him a letter. That night, before we moved the casket to the Capitol. Do you know what I wrote? That I wanted to die. I wanted to die.

The Priest: I understand.

Jackie Kennedy: Do you?

The Priest: I do. Unless you are asking permission.

Jackie Kennedy: No, only crass, self-indulgent people kill themselves. No, I was just hoping... if I walked down the street next to Jack's body then someone would be kind enough to do it for me.

The Priest: In front of the whole world... A famous life, a famous death.

Jackie Kennedy: I never wanted fame. I just became a Kennedy.

Jackie Kennedy: Lyndon, what an awful way to begin your presidency.

Jackie Kennedy: There are two kinds of women, those who want power in the world and those who want power in bed.

The Priest: Take comfort in those memories.

Jackie Kennedy: I can't. They're mixed up with all the others.

The Priest: There comes a time in man's search for meaning when he realises that there are no answers. And when you come to the horrible and unavoidable realization, you accept it or you kill yourself. Or you simply stop searching.

The Priest: There comes a time in man's search for meaning when one realises that there are no answers. And when you come to that horrible, unavoidable realization, you accept it or you kill yourself. Or you simply stop searching... I have lived a blessed life. And yet every night, when I climb into bed, turn off the lights, and stare in to the dark, I wonder... Is this all there is?

Jackie Kennedy: You wonder?

The Priest: Every soul on this planet does. But then, when morning comes, we all wake up and make a pot of coffee.

Jackie Kennedy: Why do we bother?

The Priest: Because we do. You did this morning, you will again tomorrow. But God, in his infinite wisdom, has made sure it is just enough for us.
