Gattaca (1997)

Some of my favorite quotes.

“My goals didn’t change a lot in the intervening years, much to my parents’ dismay.”

“You sure you want to do this? You know you’re gonna lose.”

“It was the moment that made everything else possible.”

“I was never more certain of how far away I was from my goal than when I was standing right beside it.”

“After all, there is no gene for fate.”

“I took my mind off the pain by reminding myself that when I eventually did stand up, I’d be exactly two inches closer to the stars.”

“He suffered under a different burden. The burden of perfection.”

“No one exceeds his potential.”

“What heart problem did you ever have? Did you get yours broken once?”

“It’s funny, you work so hard, you do everything you can to get away from a place, and when you finally get your chance to leave, you find a reason to stay.”

“If you’re still interested, let me know.”

“I got the better end of the deal: I only lent you my body, you lent me your dream.”

“For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I’m suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I’m not leaving… maybe I’m going home.”
