Five Favorite Quotes from Television Shows
“Everything we do is a choice. Oatmeal or cereal. Highway or side streets. Kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way we ask for forgiveness. It’s the best anyone can do.”
– Ned the Piemaker, Pushing Daisies
“Once we let go of who we are, what we believe to be true, who the hell are we, for God’s sake? Chattel for the fates like everyone else. I’ve always held that despite how complex this world is, compromise is for the weak. And the cost of that weakness is too high a price, no matter how dire the circumstances.”
– Helen Magnus, Sanctuary
“This was exactly you; all this. All of it. You make them so afraid. When you began all those years ago, sailing off to see the universe, did you ever think you’d become this? The man who can turn an army around at the mention of his name: Doctor. The word for healer and wise man throughout the universe. We get that word from you, you know, but if you carry on the way you are, what might that word come to mean? To the people of the Gamma Forests, the word “doctor” means “mighty warrior.” How far you’ve come, and now they’ve taken a child. The child of your best friends, and they’re going to turn her into a weapon, just to bring you down. And all this, my love, in fear of you.”
– River Song, Doctor Who
“Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle, and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it’s still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild. Because after disaster strikes, the important thing is that you move on. But if you’re like me, you just keep chasing the storm.”
– Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
“You know, when I say heartbreaking you say the heart is a muscle, so it can’t break. It can only get crushed.”
“Isn’t it heartcrushing?”
-Booth and Brennan, Bones
