Line(s) of the Day #JurassicWorld

Jurassic World

Simon Masrani: You created a monster!
Henry Wu: Monster is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We’re just used to being the cat.

Irfan Khan and B.D. Wong in the sci-fi adventure film Jurrasic World (2015), the fourth and latest film in the Jurassic Park franchise. You can see my largely positive thoughts on the dinosuar-fuelled fantasy in my review here.


Line(s) of the Day #TheNightCircus


The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

The opening lines of the fantastically enchanting debut novel The Night Circus (2011) by Erin Morgenstern. I was spoiled for choice for which line to use, but I like that even from the very beginning the uniqueness and mystery of the circus has been set. Something completely pivotal to the story.

Line(s) of the Day #Youth


Now I’m just chasing time
With a thousand dreams I’m holding heavy.
And as we cross the line these fading beats have all been severed,
Don’t tell me our youth is running out.
It’s only just begun.

Taken from the song ‘Youth’ by the artist Foxes from her upcoming album Glorious.

Han Solo: Rich? 
Luke Skywalker: Rich, powerful. Listen, if you were to rescue her, the reward would be… 
Han Solo: What? 
Luke Skywalker: Well, more wealth than you can imagine! 
Han Solo: I don’t know, I can imagine quite a bit.
