Come in close. Closer. As close as you can. Because the closer you are, the easier it will be to fool you.
J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) in the film Now You See Me (2013)
Never show anyone. They’ll beg you and they’ll flatter you for the secret, but as soon as you give it up… you’ll be nothing to them.
Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) in The Prestige (2006)
