FRANZ, Bande à part (Band of Outsiders) (1964)
I am growing old, my body is deteriorating, and like all of you, will eventually cease to function. As a robot, I could have lived forever. But I tell you all today, I would rather die a man, than live for all eternity a machine.
ANDREW MARTIN, Bicentennial Man (1999)
I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss of her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it. One.
SETH, City of Angels (1998)
For one day we all stop burning, and the flames are not so thick. All the screaming and torture stops as we wait for old Saint Nick. So string up the lights and light up the tree. We're damned for all eternity. But for just one day, all is well...it's Christmastime in hell!
SATAN, Christmas in South Park (2000)
Satan reasons like man, but God thinks of eternity.
CARROLL OERSTADT, Déjà Vu (2006)
It's great to live by the spirit, to testify day by day for eternity, only what's spiritual in people's minds. But sometimes I'm fed up with my spiritual existence. Instead of forever hovering above I'd like to feel a weight grow in me to end the infinity and to tie me to earth. I'd like, at each step, each gust of wind, to be able to say "now." "Now" and "now", and no longer "forever" and "for eternity."
DAMIEL, Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of Desire) (1987)
I like your immensities. Your ocean is an image of eternity, I think. Such great spaces make us small. Do we discover the New World...or does it discover us?
QUEEN ELIZABETH I, Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)
When you get there... you will know eternity. You'll see a bird that drinks one drop of water from the ocean every hundred years. When you get there, you'll understand life and you'll become a cat, phoenix, swan, elephant, baby and an old man. You'll be alone and accompanied. You'll love and be loved, sharing the same space... and yours will be the seal of seals. As you approach the future, you'll find...ecstasy. It will overwhelm you and never abandon you.
NARRATOR, Fando y Lis (1968)
There's no way out of eternity. You're stuck with it.
ANGEL, Ghosts Can't Do It (1989)
What we do in life echoes in eternity.
MAXIMUS, Gladiator (2000)
