It's just one story. The oldest.

-Hey, uh... Didn't, uh... didn't you tell me one time at dinner once, maybe, about you used to... you used to make up stories about the stars?
-Yeah, that was-- that was, um, in A-Alaska, under the-- under the night skies.
-Yeah, you used to lay there and look up, yeah, at the stars?
-Yeah, and you remember I... I never watched a TV till I was 17, so there wasn't much to fuckin' do out there besides walk around and explore and--
-And... and look up at the stars and make up stories. Like what?
-I tell you, Marty, I've been up in that room looking out those windows every night here and just thinking... It's just one story. The oldest.
-What's that? -Light versus dark.
-Well, I know we ain't in Alaska, but... appears to me that the dark has a lot more territory.
-Yeah. You're right about that.
-Hey, listen, hey.
-Yeah, what?
-Why don't you point me in the direction of the car, man?
I've spent enough of my fuckin' life in hospitals.
-Jesus. Oh. You know what? I'd protest, but it occurs to me that you're unkillable. You want to go back, get clothes or anything?
-No, anything I left back there, I don't need. You know, you're looking at it wrong, the... sky thing. -How is that?
-Well, once, there was only dark. If you ask me, the light's winning.

I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days

before you've actually left them.

Me too. Now we know how.

Tomorrow we will run faster

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther... And one fine morning - So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Because you'll be together

You're waiting for a train. A train that'll take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you. But you can't know for sure. Yet it doesn't matter.

The Art of Possibility

We don't give children a name as an expectation to live up to, we give children a name as possibility to live into.

The right move

- You know what my dissertation was on? How patience is adaptive. Hunters are at the top of the food chain, and they all take their time.Patience... I find is overrated.
- I noticed. You like to push, to make things happen.
- That's when people trip up.
- Most people. You're gonna lose this game.
It's not a game, Martin.
- Sure, it is. You love it just as much as I do. I see it. You're leaking joy. I tell you what, you beat me, and I'll even give you back your 200 bucks. Good chess players think 5 moves ahead.
- Great chess players think one move ahead, but it's always the right move.
