Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow!! What a ride! - Lifted from Prashant's signature
Normal is ........ getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it. - Ellen DeGeneres (I saw it in a blog)
If u dont think out of the box, u'll remain in the box - Heard from an IISC prof
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is. - Albert Einstein
Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us - Elizabeth's 3rd sister Mary in Pride 'n Prejudice
Nothing is more deceitful, than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast - Mr. Darcy in Pride 'n Prejudice
I hate the way you talk to me. And the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots. And the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick. It even makes me rhyme. I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh. Even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you're not around. And the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all - Katarina Stratford (Julia Stiles) reading a poem obviously for Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) in the climax of 10 Things I Hate About You after they had a fight
Patrick : I told you, you may have a concussion.
Katarina : You don't care if I never wake up.
Patrick : Sure I do!
Katarina : Why?
Patrick : Well, then because I'd have to start taking out girls who actually like me.
Katarina : Like you could find one.
Patrick : Oh, see that there! Who needs affection when I have blind hatred? - 10 Things I Hate About You I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. - Harry (Billy Crystal) to Sally (Meg Ryan) in Harry Met Sally You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you! And I hate you, Harry. I really hate you... - Sally's reply in Harry Met Sally My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius: commander of the armies of the North, general of the Felix legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, and I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next - Russel Crowe in Gladiator Don't think you are, know you are. Come on! Stop trying to hit me and hit me - Morphius (Lawrence Fishbourne) to Neo (Keanu Reeves) in the famouos training scene of Matrix If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain - Morphius to Neo in Matrix I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure. - Agent Smith to Morpheus in Matrix Be patient till the last. Romans, countrymen, and lovers! hear me for my cause, and be silent, that you may hear: believe me for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour, that you may believe: censure me in your wisdom, and awake your senses, that you may the better judge. If there be any in this assembly, any dear friend of Caesar's, to him I say, that Brutus' love to Caesar was no less than his. If then that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men? As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love; joy for his fortune; honour for his valour; and death for his ambition. Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roan? If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak; for him have I offended. I pause for a reply - Brutus to the mob in Julius Ceasar, immediately before the famous speech of Mark Anthony FRIENDS! ROMANS! COUNTRYMEN! LEND ME YOUR EARS! I COME HERE TO BURY CEASAR, NOT TO PRAISE HIM......... The evil the men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones; So let it me with Caesar. The noble Brutus Hath told you Caesar was ambitious: If it were so, it was a grievous fault; And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it. Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest, - For Brutus is an honourable man; So are they all, all honourable men,- Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral. He was my friend, faithful and just to me: But Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man. He hath brought many captives home to Rome, Who's ransoms did the general coffers fill: Did this in Caesar seem ambitious? When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept: Ambition should be made of sterner stuff: Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man. You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition? Yet Brutus say he was ambitious; And, sure, he is an honourable man. I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke, But here I am to speak what I do know. You all did love him once,- not without cause: What cause withholds you, then, to mourn for him? O judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason!-Bear with me: My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, And I must pause till it come back to me. - Mark Anthony's famous speech in Julius Ceasar What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet - Juliet in Romeo 'n Juliet Green Goblin: Spider-Man. This is why only fools are heroes - because you never know when some lunatic will come along with a sadistic choice. Let die the woman you love... or suffer the little children. Make your choice, Spider-Man, and see how a hero is rewarded.
Spider-Man: Don't do it, Goblin.
Green Goblin: We are who we choose to be... now, CHOOSE .... (after he swings Spiderman into a destroyed building, droping a bomb, which injurs Spiderman fatally, and entering the scene in his glider) ... Misery, Misery, Misery, that's all what you've chosen. I offer you friendship and you spat in my face. ... (after he beats Spider-Man up, almost knocking him unconcious, Spiderman shoots his web but Green Goblin Stops him) ... You spun your last web Spider-Man, if you have not been so selfish your little girlfriend's death would have been quick and painless but now you really pissed me off, I'm gonna finish her, nice... and slow - Spiderman This guy, Flash Thompson, he probably deserved what happened. But just because you can beat him up doesn't give you the right to. Remember, with great power, comes great responsibility - Uncle Ben in Spiderman Green Goblin: Spider-Man is all but invincible; but Parker, we can destroy him.
Norman Osborn: I can't.
Green Goblin: Betrayal must not be countenanced. Parker must be educated.
Norman Osborn: What do I do?
Green Goblin: Instruct him in the matters of loss and pain. Make him suffer, make him wish he were dead.
Norman Osborn: Yes?
Green Goblin: And then grant his wish.
Norman Osborn: But how?
Green Goblin: The cunning warrior attacks neither body nor mind.
Norman Osborn: TELL ME HOW.
Green Goblin: The HEART, Osborn. First, we attack his heart. - Spiderman Green Goblin: You're an amazing creature, Spider-Man. You and I are not so different.
Spider-Man: I'm not like you. You're a murderer.
Green Goblin: Well, to each, his own. I chose my path, you chose the way of the hero. And they found you amusing for a while, the people of this city. But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually they will hate you. Why bother?
Spider-Man: Because it's right.
Green Goblin: [slaps Spidey on the head] Here's the real truth. There are eight million people in this city. And those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose of lifting the few exceptional people onto their shoulders. You, me? We're exceptional. I could squash you like a bug right now, but I'm offering you a chance. Join me! Imagine what we could accomplish together... what we could create. Or we could destroy! Cause the deaths of countless innocents in selfish battle again and again and again until we're both dead! Is that what you want? Think about it, hero! - Spiderman Being brilliant's not enough, young man. You have to work hard. Intelligence is not a privilege, it's a gift, and you use it for the good of mankind. - Dr Octavius to Peter Parker in Spiderman 2 Councillor Dillard : However, we ask if there has been word from the Nebuchadnezzar?
Lock : No, councillor, no word. Nothing.
Councillor West : Then we request a ship be dispatched to ascertain the fate of the One.
Lock : I wish it were possible, Councillor, but I do not believe our defense can suffer the loss of another ship.
Councillor West : It will Commander, if it must.
Lock : But it could take a single ship days to find the Nebuchadnezzar.
Councillor Dillard : Then send two.
Lock : This is insane!
Councillor Hamann : Careful, Commander.
Lock : Forgive my frustration, councillors, I wish I was able to comprehend the Council's choice on this matter.
Councillor West : Comprehension is not a requisite of cooperation. - Matrix Reloaded Boss: ... This mission is not going to be easy.
Secret Agent : ... Life never is...
[... later ...]
Boss: ... You think you are ready for another one?
Secret Agent: Thinking ... is such a waste of time. - CBZ Extreme Ad Buddy Kane: It's a pleasure.
Lester Burnham: Oh, we've met before, actually. This thing last year, Christmas at the Sheraton...
Buddy Kane: [pretends to remember] Oh yeah, yes...
Lester Burnham: It's OK, I wouldn't remember me either. - American Beauty Carolyn Burnham: Don't you mess with me, mister, or I'll divorce you so fast it'll make your head spin!
Lester Burnham: On what grounds? I'm not a drunk, I don't f**k other women, I've never hit you, I don't mistreat you... I don't even try to touch you since you've made it so abundantly clear how unnecessary you consider me to be! But I did support you when you got your license, and some people might think that entitles me to half of what's yours. So, turn off the light when you come to bed!
[... later narrating ...]
It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. - American Beauty Jason Bourne: Who has a safety deposit box full of... money and six passports and a gun? Who has a bank account number in their hip? I come in here, and the first thing I'm doing is I'm catching the sightlines and looking for an exit.
Marie: I see the exit sign, too, I'm not worried. I mean, you were shot. People do all kinds of weird and amazing stuff when they are scared.
Jason Bourne: I can tell you the license plate numbers of all six cars outside. I can tell you that our waitress is left-handed and the guy sitting up at the counter weighs two hundred fifteen pounds and knows how to handle himself. I know the best place to look for a gun is the cab of the gray truck outside, and at this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am? - Bourne Identity
