Bladerunner Quote

1 04 2011

In Blade Runner I find Rutger Hauer’s final speech most memorable:

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die.”

I was recently reminded of ths quote via George R.R. Martin’s list of His Favourite Science Fiction Films of All Time

Peter Bakowski, poet

” My greatest extravagance is … buying books more quickly than I can read them”

Too true. Not the only person to have that problem ;)

Memorable Quote:

“I think one of the best sorts of reviews are those that somehow present the feeling of the book to a reader without telling the whole story, and that provides a window of some kind of context for how to view the book (or film, album, etc).”

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Extinction or survival? Brooks keeps readers hanging with the hair-raising second installment (after 2006’s Armageddon’s Children) of a trilogy blending his bestselling Shannara and Void series. A plague-ridden future Earth faces annihilation from Void demons, once-men and other monstrous creatures. What chance do innocent children have? A pretty good chance when Logan Tom and Angel Perez, the last Knights of the Word, have pledged to defend them. Hawk, a child suffused with unpredictable magic, also helps the Seattle street kids called the Ghosts, but when he’s whisked away to the magical Gardens of Life to learn of his heroic destiny, the kids come to depend on Logan and Cat, a part-lizard girl.

Memorable Quote: “We reap a reward merely in the act of helping others. We never know how, or if, that reward will come back to us. Helping is the reward; none other is needed nor better.”  – source: “Debt of Bones” by Terry Goodkind.
