Get busy living, or get busy dying.
~Andy Dufresne, The Shawshank Redemption
Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
~Andy Dufresne, The Shawshank Redemption
I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I donít want to know. Some things are better left unsaid. Iíd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it canít be expressed in words, and it makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a grey place dares to dream. It was as if some beautiful bird had flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.
~Red, The Shawshank Redemption
We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
~John F. Kennedy, Address at Rice University on the Nation's Space Effort
Sometimes thereís so much beauty in the world, I feel like I canít take it, and my heart is just going to cave in.
~Ricky Fitts, American Beauty
It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.
~Finnick Odair, Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins)
Peeta and I grow back together. There are still moments when he clutches the back of a chair and hangs on until the flashbacks are over. I wake screaming from nightmares of mutts and lost children. But his arms are there to comfort me. And eventually his lips. On the night I feel that thing again, the hunger that overtook me on the beach, I know this would have happened anyway. That what I need to survive is not Galeís fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that.
So after, when he whispers, ďYou love me. Real or not real?Ē I tell him, ďReal.Ē
~Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins)
To this day, I can never shake the connection between this boy, Peeta Mellark, and the bread that gave me hope, and the dandelion that reminded me that I was not doomed.
~Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)
I think what I want Disneyland to be most of all is a happy placeóa place where adults and children can experience together some of the wonder of life, of adventure, and feel better because of it.
~Walt Disney, on Disneyland
To all that come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America... with hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.
~Walt Disney, at the opening of Disneyland
People fall out of the world sometimes, but they always leave traces. Little things we canít quite account for. Faces in photographs, luggage, half-eaten meals. Rings. Nothing is ever forgotten, not completely. And if something can be remembered, it can come back.
~The Doctor, Doctor Who - The Pandorica Opens
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things donít always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things donít necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
~The Doctor, Doctor Who - Vincent and the Doctor
This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
~John Muir, John of the Mountains
Every night, Doctor, when it gets dark, and the stars come out, Iíll look up on her behalf. Iíll look up at the sky, and think of you.
~Wilf, Doctor Who - Journey's End
I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble. A thousand, million light years away. They will never forget her, while she can never remember. But for one moment... one shining moment... she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.
~The Doctor, Doctor Who - Journey's End
