1. From Amorcito Consentido, translated
    From heaven a sprig of ivy fell/And in your window entwined itself/Tell me if you are entwined/So that I won't entangle myself
  2. From 30 Rock
    I think there's a lot about this world that we don't understand, like the afterlife or how bread becomes toast.
  3. From Juno
    I never realize how much I like being home unless I've been somewhere really different for a while.
  4. From Matilda
    Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.
  5. From Something Wicked This Way Comes
    But this was like old movies, the silent theater haunted with black-and-white ghosts, silvery mouths opening to let moonlight smoke out, gestures made in silence so hushed you could hear the wind fizz the hair on your cheeks.
  6. From Coraline
    Someone had once told her that if you look up at the sky from the bottom of a mine shaft, even in the brightest daylight, you see the night sky and stars.
  7. From Bless Me, Ultima
    It seemed the more I knew about people the more I knew about the strange magic hidden in their hearts.
  8. From The Monstrumologist
    So often the monsters that crowd our minds are nothing more than the strange and thoroughly alien progeny of our own fearful fantasies.
  9. From Charlie Bartlett
    Well, see, that's my whole point. I mean, you could've been born a single cell organism on the planet Zortex. In fact, given the odds, it's probably more likely, but you weren't. You were born a human being. And not just any human being in the history of human beings, but a human being that gets to be alive today, that gets to listen to all kinds of music, that gets to eat food from every culture, that gets to download porn off the internet. So, really, you have everything to live for.
  10. From my mom
    Stand up for something, even if it's not that big of a deal or it's not your place. You're not entitled to anyone's kindness or compassion but you are entitled to your opinion and how you let other people make you feel.
