    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. "You have to promise you won't fall in love with me" "That's not a problem"

    2. "Without suffering there would be no compassion."

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

    4. "Don't walk away." "You taught me how."

    5. "Maybe you inspire me." "Sounds like bull."

    6. "Maybe you're just too scared that someone might actually want to be with you."

    7. "This is about me, okay? This is not you."

    8. "I might kiss you."

    9. This moment.

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

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

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

    13. This moment.

    14. "I'm sick."

    15. This moment.

    16. "I'm not going anywhere. Please tell Jamie that."

    17. "Are you scared?"

    18. "I'm scared of not being with you."

    19. "Honey, if I kept you too close, it's because I wanted to keep you longer."

    20. "Love is always patient and kind."

    21. This.

    22. This moment.

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

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

    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."

    26. "I'm sorry she never got her miracle." "She did. It was you."

    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.
