"The nicest memory I have of him is when we went down to his family's property in Costa Rica, and we'd eat these mangoes for breakfast. River had them dripping all over him. When he ate, he ate with his hands. For me, he'll always be that beautiful, drippy mess."

--Samantha Mathis on River Phoenix

For some reason, this quote has always stuck with me in my brain... perhaps because it is so visually resounding.  i can smell mangoes in the jungle.  or maybe because it hit a heart nerve... 

beautiful, drippy mess.
