I hope that, whoever you are, you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and things get better. But I hope most of all that you understand that even though I will never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you.
Valerie (Natasha Wightman) — V for Vendetta (2006)
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Too often […] we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
President John F. Kennedy – Commencement Address at Yale University, Old Campus, New Haven, Connecticut, June 11, 1962
What I want is for you to write ‘fuck me’ on your chest. Write it! Do it! And then I want you to walk out that door, and I want you to walk down the street. And anybody that wants to fuck you, say ‘Sure, sure, no problem.’ And when they do, you have to say ‘Thank you very, very much’ and make sure that you have a smile on your face. And then, you stupid fucking coward, you’re gonna know what it feels like to be a woman!
Jenny Schecter (Mia Kirshner) – The L Word – s02e11
|Don’t you know that when you sleep with someone, your body makes a promise whether you do or not?
|Nothing has to happen for me to have a bad day.
That’s the thrilling part of all this.
It just comes and hits and runs me over like a goddam freight train.
I have so much pain inside me that I can cry at will
Lisa Stemple (Anne Ramsay) – Mad About You
|There is a face beneath this mask, but it's not me. I am no more that face, than I am the muscles beneath it, or the bones beneath them.
