"What, the landing gear worked, just like that? I'm not sure I can live in a world with that kind of possibility."
"But you learn to."
"I can imagine myself destitute, I can imagine myself unlucky in love, but I never thought I'd risk my life with such frequency -- it felt kind of good, didn't it?"
Dialogue from The West Wing
"I don't want to be an ant, you know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continuously on 'ant' auto-pilot with nothing really human required of us. 'Stop. Go. Walk here, drive there.' All action basically for survival, all communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner. 'Here's your change. Paper or plastic? Credit or debit? You want ketchup with that?' I don't want a straw, I want real human moments! I want to see you, I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up - I don't want to be an ant, you know?"
Richard Linklater's Waking Life
"I will prepare, and someday my chance will come."
