“To hold on to sanity, too tight is insane!” – Pushing Tin (1999)

“There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.” – Morpheus, The Matrix

“It’s horrifying how much you can hate yourself for being low and weak and he couldn’t save me from that. So I turned it on him; I tried to empty it onto him. But there was always more, you know. When he tried to help I told him that he made me feel small and worthless. But nobody makes us feel that, we do that for ourselves. I shut him out because I knew if he ever really saw who I was inside, that he wouldn’t love me. And we’re separated now, he’s moved away, and it was so hard not to beg him to stay. And I don’t know if I’m going to get a second chance but I have to believe. That I deserve one. Because we all do.” – When A Man Loves A Woman (1994)

“When I was a kid, my father had this dog that started to get all weak and sickly. He takes it to the vet, he examines it and says a maggot must have laid eggs in the dog’s butt. The baby maggots have crawled up, now they’ve started to grow, and eventually they’re gonna eat the dog alive from the inside. He says it should be put to sleep, because it’s an old dog anyway. But father won’t do it. He takes the dog home, he puts it on the bed, he reaches up into the dog, picking out the maggots with his finger, one by one. It takes him all night, but he gets every last one. That dog outlived my father. That’s love, Sam.” – Addicted To Love (1997)

“Look at yourself, Simba….you are more than what you have become.” – The Lion King

“He said, ‘You can’t talk about music. Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.’ It’s just as pointless as talking about a lot of things. Love, for instance. Talking about love is like dancing about architecture. So I don’t know. He might be right. But it ain’t gonna stop me from trying.”  – Playing By Heart, 1998

Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today, it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it, for having been allowed to walk where I’ve walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above. – Gia Marie Carangi (1960-1986), Gia (1998 film by Angelina Jolie)
