“And the monkey flips the switch.”
Akiva Goldsman

“No life is more important than another. And nothing has been without purpose. Nothing. What if we are all part of a great pattern that we may someday understand? And one day, when we have done what we alone are capable of doing, we get to rise up and reunite with those we have loved the most, forever embraced. What if we get to become... stars.”
Akiva Goldsman

“Across time, against darkness, destiny finds a way.”
