Don’t let the moment pass. Don’t let the people you love walk by you without letting them know how you feel about them. Because life slips by and then it’s over.
I’ve always found the idea of death comforting. The thought that my life could end at any moment frees me to fully appreciate the beauty, and art, and horror of everything this world has to offer.
Killing a man instantly robs him of explanation. He has no time to process his final moments. Now, even though he was paralyzed, his mind was still able to understand why his life was ending. We let him die with answers. Otherwise, we’re nothing but ruthless murderers.
There are moments in life in which you should have a remote control so you could stop it. Even if just for five minutes. But sometimes things happen with irreverent obscenity, and there is nothing you can do about it.[Hay momentos en la vida en los que habría que tener un puñetero mando a distancia para poder pararla. Aunque fuera solo cinco minutos. Pero a veces las cosas se suceden con una irreverente obscenidad y no se puede hacer nada por remediarlo.]
When you kill someone, you lose all your leverage the moment they’re dead. Now, you take someone’s children away from them, you’d be amazed what they’d do to get them back.
We live in a moment where we do what we have to do for the people that we love. The old rules just don’t apply.
The most important moments are when we realize there’s no going back. That you’ve crossed a line, and there’s no way back. The point of no return. Everything is about to change, and you cling to the present, as if you could stop the disaster.[Los momentos importantes son en los que comprendemos que ya no hay retorno. Que cruzas una línea que no tiene marcha atrás. El no retorno. Todo está a punto de cambiar, y tú te agarras al presente. Como si pudieras detener el desastre.]
The moment you put on the mask you got into cage with animals. Animals don’t stop fighting. Not until one of them is dead.
