Alexander Pope | Eloisa To Abelard | 207 – 210

Today’s quote is a quote from lines 207 – 210 of the verse epistle / poem Eloisa To Abelard by Alexander Pope:

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot?

The world forgetting, by the world forgot:

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!

Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned;

Alexander Pope | Eloisa To Abelard | 207 – 210

I first heard this quote during a scene in the movie Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind when it was said by the character Mary Svevo (played by Kirsten Dunst) to the character Dr. Howard Mierzwiak (played by Tom Wilkinson):

‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ | Critics’ Picks | The New York Times

When I watched this movie for the first time alone during the evening or night, that quote really stood out to me, and it went well with that scene; and it impacted me as did this movie because I was in a contemplative mood when I first watched it, and this movie surprised me and I liked it.

The end,
