If I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England.
The opening lines of the poem ‘The Soldier’ (1914) by Rupert Brooke
The Iron Giant: You die?
Hogarth Hughes: Well, yes, someday.
The Iron Giant: I die?
Hogarth Hughes: I don’t know. You’re made of metal, but you have feelings, and you think about things, and that means you have a soul. And souls don’t die.
The Iron Giant: Soul?
Hogarth Hughes: Mom says it’s something inside of all good things, and that it goes on forever and ever.
Eli Marienthal and Vin Diesel in ‘The Iron Giant’ (1999)
