This blog inspired me to create this page and i will hopefully be updating it every week. Enjoy reading!
A still photograph is something which you can always go back to. You can put it on your wall and look at it again and again. Because it is that frozen moment. I think it tends to burn into your psyche. It becomes ingrained in your mind. A powerful picture becomes iconic of a place or a time or a situation. – Steve McCurry
“Money’s a bitch that never sleeps. She lies there in bed at night with you, looking at you, one eye open… And she’s jealous. If you do not pay close attention … you wake up in the morning, and she might be gone forever…” – WallStreet Money Never Sleeps
Work hard, Be kind and amazing things will happen. You should not fear failure but you should do your very best to avoid it. Whatever doesnt kill you makes you stronger what he failed to stress is that it almost kills you – Conan O’Brien
You once told me, our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch. Is that true for everybody, or is it just poetic bullshit? – Gandhi said that whatever you do in life will be insignificant. But it’s very important that you do it. I tend to agree with the first part – Remember Me
The inches we need are everywhere around us.
They’re in every break of the game, every minute, every second.
On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch, because we know when we add up all those inches that’s gonna make the fuckin’ difference between winning and losing! Between livin’ and dyin’!
I’ll tell you this: In any fight, it’s the guy who’s willing to die who’s gonna win that inch. And I know if I’m gonna have any life anymore, it’s because I’m still willin’ to fight and die for that inch. Because that’s what livin’ is! The six inches in front of your face!!
Now I can’t make you do it. You got to look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes! Now I think you’re gonna see a guy who will go that inch with you. You’re gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows, when it comes down to it, you’re gonna do the same for him!
That’s a team, gentleman!

Dalton Russell: My name is Dalton Russell. Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and I never repeat myself. I’ve told you my name: that’s the Who. The Where could most readily be described as a prison cell. But there’s a vast difference between being stuck in a tiny cell and being in prison. The What is easy: recently I planned and set in motion events to execute the perfect bank robbery. That’s also the When. As for the Why: beyond the obvious financial motivation, it’s exceedingly simple… because I can. Which leaves us only with the How; and therein, as the Bard would tell us, lies the rub. – Inside Man
Keith Frazier: Oh, please, do not say proposals… my girlfriend… she wants a proposal from me.
Dalton Russell: You think you’re too young to get married?
Keith Frazier: No, I’m not too young… too broke. Maybe I should rob a bank.
Dalton Russell: Do you love each other?
Keith Frazier: Yeah, yeah, we do.
Dalton Russell: Then money shouldn’t really matter.
Keith Frazier: Thank you, bank robber! -Inside Man
Vito Corleone: There are people in this world who go about demanding to be killed. You must have noticed them. They quarrel in gambling games. They jump out of their automobiles in a rage. They humiliate and bully people whose capabilities they do not know. These are people who wander through the world shouting, kill me. And there’s always someone ready to oblige to them. – The Godfather.
Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige” – Cutter(ThePrestige)
Robert Angier: No one cares about the man in the box, the man who disappears.
“Fuck this whole city and everyone in it. From the row-houses of Astoria to the penthouses on Park Avenue, from the projects in the Bronx to the lofts in Soho. From the tenements in Alphabet City to the brownstones in Park Slope to the split-levels in Staten Island. Let an earthquake crumble it, let the fires rage, let it burn to fucking ash and then let the waters rise and submerge this whole rat-infested place.” —
Fuck – Ed Norton at his best

Sometimes to better appreciate a man, you have to understand the journey he took to make him the man he is today-
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down ~ Oprah Winfrey
I saw her from a distance smoking a cigarette. When she was almost done, she walked towards the rubbish bin which was at my side. I positioned myself right in her pathway and waited until she was close enough. She took a last puff.I took the shot.-Danny Santos
“Well, you know what, every time you get to see those days in your life, always remember to make a wish, because they say that no matter what you wish for when you see a new moon it will come true one day or another”
“Today, your cell phone has more computer power than all of NASA back in 1969, when it placed two astronauts on the moon. Video games, which consume enormous amounts of computer power to simulate 3-D situations, use more computer power than mainframe computers of the previous decade. The Sony PlayStation of today, which costs $300, has the power of a military supercomputer of 1997, which cost millions of dollars.”- Michio Kaku Physics professor at the cuny graduate center.
“One of war’s more jarring traits is that it sweeps normal people into its maelstrom and carries them along to places they never imagined they’d be.” American soldier, Nathaniel Fick
