It is thus that the few rare lucid well-disposed people who have had to struggle on the earth find themselves at certain hours of the day or night in the depth of certain authentic and waking nightmare states, surrounded by the formidable suction, the formidable oppression of a kind of civic magic which will soon be seen appearing openly in social behavior.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera -- and himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

When we were growing up and saw a Ray Harryhausen movie, we were interested in how it was done. But thank God we got to go through the magic of seeing it before we knew how it was done.

Pregnant women! They had that weird frisson, an aura of magic that combined awkwardly with an earthy sense of duty. Mundane, because they were nothing unique on the suburban streets; ethereal because their attention was ever somewhere else. Whatever you said was trivial. And they had that preciousness which they imposed wherever they went, compelling attention, constantly reminding you that they carried the future inside, its contours already drawn, but veiled, private, an inner secret.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Cornelius Fudge: As the Minister of Magic it is my duty to inform you, Mr Potter, that at approximately 7:30 this evening your uncle's sister was located a little south of Sheffield, circling a chimney stack. The Accidental Magic Reversal squad was dispatched immediately, she has been properly punctured and her memory modified. She will have no recollection of the event whatsoever so that's that and no harm done. Pea soup?
Harry: No thank you. Minister?
Cornelius Fudge: Yes?

Hagrid: Better out than in. Who was Ron trying to curse anyway?
Harry: Malfoy. He called Hermione a... well, I'm not sure what it means.
Hermione: [on the verge of tears] He called me a Mudblood.
Hagrid: [gasps] He did not.
Harry: What's a Mudblood?
Hermione: It means "dirty blood". Mudblood's a really foul name for someone who is Muggle-born, someone with non magic parents... someone like me. It's not a term one usually hears in civilized conversation.
Hagrid: You see Harry, there are some people, like the Malfoys, who think they're better than everyone else because they're what's called "pure blood".
Harry: That's horrible.
Ron: [more slugs] It's disgusting.
Hagrid: And it's codswallop to boot. Why there isn't a wizard alive who isn't half blood or less, and moreover they've yet to think of a spell that our Hermione can't do.

Cutter: Every great magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called "The Pledge"; The magician shows you something ordinary, but of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn"; The magician makes his ordinary some thing do something extraordinary. Now if you're looking for the secret... you won't find it, that's why there's a third act called, "The Prestige"; this is the part with the twists and turns, where lives hang in the balance, and you see something shocking you've never seen before.More [03/13/2007 12:03:00]

Virginia: Our mirror's smashed, what can we do? Where the hell are the other two?
Gustav the Magic Mirror: Mirror one shattered be, by an oaf named Antony. Mirror two is on a bed with barnacles upon its head.
Tony: A bed... with barnacles.
Virginia: The sea bed!
Dwarf Librarian: Yes. One fell into the Great Northern Sea. I think you can safely discount that one.
Gustav the Magic Mirror: What you seek has not been seen, since it was stolen by the Queen.
Tony: The Queen! That's all we need.
Prince Wendell: Antony, uh, any chance of a little biscut?
Tony: No, no, no, um...
Tony: Very helpful you have been, just tell us where we can find the Queen.

Aslan: If the Witch understood the true meaning of sacrifice, she would have interpreted the deep magic differently. That when a willing victim who has committed no wrong, offers himself in a traitor's stead, the stone table will crack, and death itself will go backwards.More [04/02/2007 12:04:00]

Old Paul Edgecomb: I think Mr. Jingles happened by accident. I think when we electrocuted Del, and it all went so badly... well, John can feel that you know... and I think a part of... whatever magic was inside of him just slept through my tiny friend here. As for me, John had to give me a part of himself; a gift the way he saw it, so that I could see for myself what Wild Billy had done. When John did that; when he took my hand, a part of the power that worked through him spilled into me.
Elaine Connelly: He... what? He infected you with life?
Old Paul Edgecomb: That's as good a word as any. He infected us both, didn't he, Mr. Jingles? With life. I'm a hundred and eight years old, Elaine. I was forty-four the year that John Coffey walked the Green Mile. You mustn't blame John. He couldn't have what happened to him... he was just a force of nature. Oh I've lived to see some amazing things Elly. Another century come to past, but I've... I've had to see my friends and loved ones die off through the years... Hal and Melinda... Brutus Howell... my wife... my boy. And you Elaine... you'll die too, and my curse is knowing that I'll be there to see it. It's my torment you see; it's my punishment, for letting John Coffey ride the lightning; for killing a miracle of God. You'll be gone like all the others. I'll have to stay. I'll die eventually, that I'm sure. I have no illusions of immortality, but I will await your death... long before death finds me. In truth, I wish for it already.More [04/07/2007 12:04:00]

Angelika: No, Will. I'm going to find my sisters.
Jacob Grimm: Will doesn't care about them. Will doesn't care about anything but himself!
Will Grimm: This isn't a fairy tale. They are not coming back!
Jacob Grimm: This is not your world, Will!
Jacob Grimm: Angelika... you know, don't you? The story, it's happening to us now. We're living it. It's alive, it's real, it's breathing. And we could give it a happy ending. Angelika, we'll find your sisters. All right? We'll bring them back.
Will Grimm: [getting angry] Bring back her sisters?
Will Grimm: Bring them back? Bring them back with what? Magic beans?
Jacob Grimm: Why do you say that?
