A book is meant to be read beginning to end but best understood end to beginning - Mr. Church (2016)

People act strange around death. There are those who talk about everything but the person who died. Those who talked about only the person who died. Those who try to cheer you up. And those who can't help but make you cry. And then there are those who say nothing at all because they don't have to. - Mr. Church (2016)

Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. - Alfred to Bruce, The Dark Knight (2008)

There's not a day goes by that I don't feel regret. Not because I'm in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try to talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone, and this old man is all that's left. I gotta live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bullshit word. So go ahead and stamp your forms, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don't give a shit. - Red to the probation officers, Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The hard part isn't making the decision. It's living with it. - Jonas Cantrell, Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

Is the grass greener on the other side? Rather than plucking grass strands and comparing them to each other and a color calibration chart... I say let's slaughter the cow, pull up the fence into a pile of wood and then invite all our friends over to cook steaks on a bon fire with some country music blaring out of truck while sitting on the tailgate. Grass color is so overrated. - Me (2016)

Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity. - Dr Rick Rigsby (https://www.facebook.com/goalcast/videos/1585909778152873/?sk=h_chr)
