"I wrote everything from the point of view of a person of a great age looking back so many years. It was the love story that made the film, of course. It was magnificently done with special effects, the actors were good. But the love story was what it was." - Will Jennings (songwriter)
''I had about a $2 million dollar necklace around my neck. I had six bodyguards on the red carpet. I thought it was for me, but it was not for me. It was for the necklace. When I sang the song, I hit my chest. I forgot that I was wearing it. I could feel the bodyguards engaging, like, Man down! They did not give me the necklace, unfortunately.'' - Céline Dion
Every night in Vegas I’m like, “Oh, gosh, I’m not going to sing that song again.” And then that curtain opens and the smoke starts and people are crying. Every night when I start to sing that song, I think, “Gee, what a song. What a moment.” I’m so thankful that they did not listen to me. I said, “No way, José. At the end of the day, I’m the one that sings it and sells it. I’m not doing that.” I’m so glad that my husband said, “I really think that you should do that song.” - Céline Dion
