She’s safe, just like I promised. She’s all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we’re all men of our word really… except for, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.
You don’t know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.
You don’t know how hard it is being a man looking at a woman looking the way you do.
I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.
I suppose nothing hurts you.
Professor Minerva McGonagall:
[to Harry, Ron, & Hermione]
Why is it, when something happens, it is always you three?
Believe me, Professor. I’ve been asking myself the same question for six years.
Man thinks they are each alone in this world. It is not true. You are all connected. One act can one day affect all.
[Quoting Marlon Brando/Jor-el from 1978’s SUPERMAN:THE MOVIE to Jason asleep in his bed]
You will be different, sometimes you’ll feel like an outcast, but you’ll never be alone. You will make my strength your own. You will see my life through your eyes, as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father and the father becomes the son.
You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves… You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and… What I’m trying to say, Tristan is… I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I’d know it for myself. My heart… It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange – no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.

You’re never gonna let him forget this, are you?
