Sci-Fi Quotes II

"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long."
-Dr. Eldon Tyrell, Blade Runner-

"We're defined by our past.

We can rethink our choices a million times, but what we decide we own.
It becomes a part of who we are."
-Maddux Donner, Defying Gravity, Episode 5, Rubicon-
"Fear is not real. The only place fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future.
It is a product of our imagination causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist.
That is near insanity.... Danger is very real, but fear is a choice.
We are all telling ourselves a story."
-Cypher Raige, After Earth- 

"Do you know how hard it is to fake your own death?
Only one man has pulled it off: Elvis."

I guess it means a walk in the corridor."

"We're just caught up in The Churn is all.

Survival. ... we end up dead.

Or we happen to live through it, and well, that doesn't mean anything either."
-Amos Burton, The Expanse, Episode 7, Windmills-

 "People break down into two groups when they experience something lucky.
Group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence.
They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck.
A happy turn of chance.
I'm sure the people in group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way.
For them, this situation is a fifty-fifty.
Could be bad, could be good.
But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they're on their own.
And that... fills them with fear.
Yeah, there are those people.
But there's a whole lot of people in the group number one.
When they see those fourteen lights, they're looking at a miracle.
And deep down, they feel that, whatever's going to happen, there'll be someone there to help them.
And that fills them with hope.
See, what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you?
Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles?
Or do you believe that people just get lucky?"
-Reverend Graham Hess, Signs-

 "I think children have an instinctive need for adults.

They want to be told right and wrong."
-Captain James T. Kirk, Star Trek: TOS, Miri-

"We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty."
-Mal, Firefly, Ep1, Pilot-

"Don't make me angry.
You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."
-David Banner, The Incredible Hulk-

"There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality.
Sure I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, .... I collect information to use in my own way.
All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience."
-Major Motoko Kusanagi, Ghost In The Shell-

Might I remind you, you are a machine."
-Android Program, Dark Matter-

"A machine with friends."

"This is Doctor Rodney McKay speaking to you from my base of operations in the lost city of Atlantis, located deep within the Pegasus galaxy.
I record this message on the eve of our darkest hour.
As I speak, an alien armada of biblical proportions is on its way, bent - dare I say hellbent, in keeping with the metaphor – on our destruction.
We will do our best to stave off their attack but I am afraid that defeat is all but inevitable.
I, and the other members of my team, face the most horrific deaths imaginable, as our very lives are sucked from our chests in a, in a, horrific - Okay, uh, start again."
-Rodney McKay, Stargate Atlantis, S1, Ep17, Letters From Pegasus-

And in case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night!"
-Truman Burbank, The Truman Show-

In fact, as one gets older, it becomes more and more difficult to know... what a good man is.
Yet it also becomes increasingly important to at least try."

"When people don't tell the truth it always ends badly."
