27 Reasons How “A Walk To Remember” Helped Us Achieve Emotional Maturity

A step-by-step approach to emotional growth as told by Mandy Moore and Shane West.

1. 1. “You have to promise you won’t fall in love with me” “That’s not a problem”

Ahh, you snarky boy

2. 2. “Without suffering there would be no compassion.”

Wise words from Mandy Moore

3. 3. “I thought I saw something in you, something good, but I was very wrong.”

Ouch, hate to see that door slam

4. 4. “Don’t walk away.” “You taught me how.”


5. 5. “Maybe you inspire me.” “Sounds like bull.”

You just march yourself right out of there, Mandy

6. 6. “Maybe you’re just too scared that someone might actually want to be with you.”

Sometimes in life, you just get called out

7. 7. “This is about me, okay? This is not you.”

Ugh who doesn’t love a protective guy in the face of school bullies?!

8. 8. “I might kiss you.”

Let’s be honest with ourselves here, their first kiss is precious

9. 9. This moment.

Yep, she did. *See #1

10. 10. “Be fair to him, Jamie, before things get worse.”


11. 11. “So why am I looking for this star?” “Because I had it named for you.”

I bet Shane West is really good at giving Christmas presents

12. 12. “So, what’s your number one?” “To marry in the church where my mother grew up.”

13. 13. This moment.

14. 14. “I’m sick.”

no. no. please stop. don’t.

15. 15. This moment.

Warning: your heart is about to start breaking

16. 16. “I’m not going anywhere. Please tell Jamie that.”

Standing up to the man.

17. 17. “Are you scared?”

Do you really want to know her answer?

18. 18. “I’m scared of not being with you.”

Oh god, this kills me.

19. 19. “Honey, if I kept you too close, it’s because I wanted to keep you longer.”

aaaand this is where I lose it

20. 20. “Love is always patient and kind.”

But it’s a beautiful moment when he reads to her and now I have time to reach for the tissue box

21. 21. This.

Sometimes you have to remind people how important they are to you

22. 22. This moment.

Just wondering, how does one not bawl their eyes out at this embrace?

23. 23. “Will you do something for me, then? Will you marry me?”

The most nonchalant of proposals but ITS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

24. 24. “To honor and to cherish, all the days of my life.”

25. 25. “Jamie and I had a perfect summer together with more love than lots of people know in a lifetime. And then she went with her unfailing faith.”

Commence the ugly cry…

26. 26. “I’m sorry she never got her miracle.” “She did. It was you.”


27. 27. “Jamie saved my life. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. I’ll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can’t see it, but I can feel it.”

In that hour and a half, you have transformed into a sensitive, loving, and thoughtful adult.
…and if not, at least it’s a great movie.
