"I saw a hole in the Man, deep like a hunger he will never fill. It is what makes him sad and what makes him want. He will go on taking and taking, until one day the World will say, 'I am no more and I have nothing left to give." - Apocalypto

"There's still a kid inside but you grow up when you decide to do right, and not what's right for you, what's right for everybody, even when it hurts." - Lars And The Real Girl

"Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici; by the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe." - V For Vendetta

"You will leave life even more beautiful than you entered it. Heaven will take you back and look at you and say, 'Only one thing can make a soul complete and that thing is love.'" - The Reader

"They planted a seed over his grave. The seed became a tree. Moses said his father became a part of that tree. He grew into the wood, into the bloom. And when a sparrow ate the tree's fruit, his father flew with the birds. He said death was his father's road to awe." - The Fountain

"Just because it is, doesn't mean it should be." - Australia
