"I'm still searching for an angel with a broken wing. It's not very easy to find them these days." ~Jimmy Page, 1975

"Now we've travelled about quite a bit as you know...and at the same time, we see that there's a common denominator. To everything. The fact that the song remains the same." ~Robert Plant

"Home is behind the world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadow, to the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight
Mist and shadow, cloud and shade
All shall fade, all shall fade..."
~The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

"One minute we talk of the colour of fruit, the next of love. How does that happen?" ~North & South

"You are a riddle, Nanon. You shrink from me...and yet you kiss my flowers when I am gone."
~The Unknown

"I don't grow up. In me is the small child of my early days."
~M.C. Escher

"Have I played my part in the farce of life creditably enough?"
~Augustus Caesar, from Suetonius' The Twelve Caesars

"Your joys and sorrows. You can never tell them. You cheapen the inside of yourself if you do tell them."
~Greta Garbo

"I understand, all right. The hopeless dream of being--not seeming, but being. At every waking moment, alert. The gulf between what you are with others and what you are alone. The vertigo and the constant hunger to be exposed, to be seen through, perhaps even wiped out. Every inflection and every gesture a lie, every smile a grimace. Suicide? No, too vulgar. But you can refuse to move, refuse to talk, so that you don't have to lie. You can shut yourself in. Then you needn't play any parts or make wrong gestures. Or so you thought. But reality is diabolical. Your hiding place isn't watertight. Life trickles in from the outside, and you're forced to react." ~Persona



"Oh, you're reading a book?"
"Yeah."
"What's this one about?"
"Oh, it's about this woman who's incredibly--well, she's a hostess and she's incredibly confident and she's going to give a party. And, maybe because she's confident, everyone thinks she's fine... but she isn't."
~The Hours

"My darling, you're such a child. You think that by saying, 'I'm sorry,' all the past can be corrected."
~Rhett Butler, Gone With The Wind

"I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice, not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother's death, but because he is the reason I believe in God."
~John Irving, A Prayer For Owen Meany

"Whether we see each other next week, next month, never again, it doesn't matter. It's only time."
~Brian Kinney, Queer as Folk

"There is everything in life but hope."
"We're both alive, and for all I know that's what hope is."
~The Lion In Winter
