The idea is to leave here a little smarter.
Reyeb - A Prophet
We’re in love. We just want to be together. What’s wrong with that?
Suzy - Moonrise Kingdom
It’s an interesting group of people, your friends are. Like the cast of a Fellini movie.
Isaac Davis - Manhattan
I like the way you die, boy.
Django - Django Unchained
Then I saw it. A mother who would die for her son, a man who would kill for his wife, and an abandoned child headed the wrong path.
Joe - Looper
A half-finished book is, after all, a half-finished love affair.
Robert Frobisher - Cloud Atlas
Right now we are alive and in this moment I swear we are infinite.
Charlie - The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Not a lot of people know what it feels like, do they? To be angry in your bones. I mean, they “understand”. Foster parents, teachers, everybody understands; for a while. Then they want the angry little kid to do something he knows he can’t do, move on. So after a while they stop understanding. They send the angry kid to a boy’s home. I figured it out too late. You gotta learn to hide the anger, practice smiling in the mirror. It’s like putting on a mask.
John Blake - The Dark Knight Rises
It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?
Christopher Gardner- The Pursuit of Happyness
I love this place at night, the stars. There’s no right or wrong in them. They’re just there.
Sgt. Elias - Platoon
For us to live any other way was nuts. Uh, to us, those goody-good people who worked shitty jobs for bum paychecks and took the subway to work every day, and worried about their bills, were dead. I mean they were suckers. They had no balls. If we wanted something we just took it. If anyone complained twice they got hit so bad, believe me, they never complained again
Henry Hill - Goodfellas
There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.
Alex - A Clockwork Orange
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
Christian - Moulin Rouge
We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves. I wish for all this to be marked on my body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.
Katharine Clifton - The English Patient
Ernest Hemingway once wrote, “The world is a fine place, and worth fighting for.” I agree with the second part.
William Somerset - Seven
