CLAIRE BENNET, "Chapter Twelve 'Upon This Rock'" (2010)
I always thought freedom was just another word for "nothing left to lose."
SAMUEL SULLIVAN, "Chapter Twelve 'Upon This Rock'" (2010)
Future can only be the future for so long. Then it becomes the present.
USUTU, "Chapter Three 'One of Us, One of Them'" (2008)
It's an odd country, America. Everyone there seems so lonely.
MOHINDER SURESH, "Chapter Eight 'Seven Minutes to Midnight'" (2006)
We have the power of gods. That doesn't mean we can play God.
KAITO NAKAMURA, "Chapter Nine 'Cautionary Tales'" (2007)
Is it man's ability to remember that sets us apart? We are the only species concerned with the past. Our memories give us voice, and bear witness to history, so that others might learn - so they might celebrate our triumphs, and be warned of our failures.
MOHINDER SURESH, "Chapter Eight 'Four Months Ago...'" (2007)
Self-reflection happens when you hit forty, along with all sorts of other unpleasant surprises.
ANGELA PETRELLI, "Chapter 1 'Orientation'" (2009)
To be truly happy, a man must live absolutely in the present and with no thought of what's gone before, and no thought of what lies ahead. But, a life of meaning...A man is condemned to wallow in the past and obsess about the future.
MR. LINDERMAN, "Chapter Eighteen 'Parasite'" (2007)
There is good and there is evil, right and wrong, heroes and villains. And if we're blessed with wisdom, then there are glimpses between the cracks of each, where light streams through. We wait in silence for these times, when sense can be made; when meaningless existence comes into focus and our purpose presents itself. And if we have the strength to be honest, then what we find there, staring back at us, is our own reflection, bearing witness to the duality of life: that each one of us is capable of both the dark and the light, of good and evil, of either, of all. And destiny, while marching ever in our direction, can be re-routed by the choices we make, by the love we hold onto, and the promises we keep.
MOHINDER SURESH, "Chapter Thirteen 'Dual'" (2008)
A family is more than blood. It's about trust. About love. About those who embrace you, the real you, unconditionally.
SAMUEL SULLIVAN, "Chapter Eight 'Shadowboxing'" (2009)
