Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom): In that moment, I knew success, not greatness, was the only god the world served.
Claire Colburn (Kirsten Dunst): So you failed. Alright you really failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You failed. You think I care about that? I do understand. You wanna be really great? Then have the courage to fail big and stick around. Make them wonder why you're still smiling.
Drew Baylor: No true fiasco ever began as a quest for mere adequacy. A motto of the British Special Air Force is: 'Those who risk, win.' A single green vine shoot is able to grow through cement. The Pacific Northwestern salmon beats itself bloody on its quest to travel hundreds of miles upstream against the current, with a single purpose --- sex of course --- but also...life.

Jake Shuttlesworth: I pray you understand why I pushed you so hard! It was only to get you to that next level, son. I mean, you's the first Shuttlesworth that's ever gonna make it out of these projects, and I was the one who who put the ball in your hand, son! I put the ball in your crib!
Jesus Shuttlesworth (Ray Allen): God ain't shit!
Jake Shuttlesworth: Number one, why you gotta use this kinda language? What you some kinda heathen now? You don't make no mistakes? You be out here shootin', but you don't miss no shots ever? EVER? People make mistakes! People veer off the path! God forgives them!
Jesus Shuttlesworth: Has God forgiven you for killing my mother?
Jake Shuttlesworth: I pray that He has, son. I believe He has. When will you?
i hope you guys and gals get to catch these movies created from the heart by their respective, er, creators :) (i learned a LOT from them, even if i just caught the last parts!)
Ah, Lord. Thinking about movies written and directed by me leaves me all swooning and daydreaming...and not able to focus on my current tasks. *tsk tsk!* :D
Since my life is supposedly written and directed by (in my cool bro's words) The Great One, then i should be getting back to work :) (which i love to do too, by the way!)
Keepin' on dreamin' though.
