Only you

Posted: December 3, 2015 by Murdock in Conversations, Film & TV Quotes, Love, Quotes

DR MANHATTAN : Will you smile…
…if I admit I was wrong?
LAURIE:
About what?
DR MANHATTAN : Miracles.
Events with astronomical odds
of occurring…
…like oxygen turning into gold.
I’ve longed to witness such an event,
and yet I neglect…
…that in human coupling…
…millions upon millions of cells
compete to create life…
…for generation after generation…
…until finally, your mother…
…Ioves a man…
…Edward Blake, the Comedian,
a man she has every reason to hate…
…and out of that contradiction,
against unfathomable odds…
…it’s you…
Only…
…you.
– that emerged.
To distill so specific a form…
…from all that chaos…
…is like turning air into gold.
A miracle.

Without so much as a microorganism

Posted: November 30, 2015 by Murdock in Film & TV Quotes, Quotes

Silver Spectre: Jon, please. You have to stop this. Everyone will die.

Doctor Manhattan: And the universe will not even notice. In my opinion, the existence of life is a highly overrated phenomenon. Just look around you.

Mars gets along perfectly well without so much as a microorganism. Here, it’s a constantly changing topographical map……flowing and shifting around the pole in ripples 10,000 years wide.

So tell me……how would all of this be greatly improved by an oil pipeline?
By a shopping mall?

Successful Relationships

In my experience some of the most successful relationships begin with lies and deceit, since all of them end up being that way, it’s a logical way to start,

Nobody can hear you. Nobody cares about you. Nothing will come of this.

Sometimes…

Sometimes I’d like to get my hands on God!

There can be no true despair without hope

Posted: February 24, 2013 by Murdock in Film & TV Quotes

Bruce Wayne: Why didn’t you just… kill me?
Bane: You don’t fear death… You welcome it. Your punishment must be more severe.
Bruce Wayne: Torture?
Bane: Yes. But not of your body… Of your soul.
Bruce Wayne: Where am I?
Bane: Home, where I learned the truth about despair, as will you. There’s a reason why this prison is the worst hell on earth… Hope. Every man who has ventured here over the centuries has looked up to the light and imagined climbing to freedom. So easy… So simple… And like shipwrecked men turning to sea water from uncontrollable thirst, many have died trying. I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham, I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to “stay in the sun.” You can watch me torture an entire city and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s destiny… We will destroy Gotham and then, when it is done and Gotham is ashes, then you have my permission to die
~ Batman (Christian Bale) and Bane (Tom Hardy) in The Dark Knight Rises
