„Honba za americkým snem vás zničí. A to i když jste milionář. To nemá nic společného s penězi nebo drogovým návykem. Honba za tímhle snem zničí vaši duši, protože se honíte za lží.“

„The voice so filled with nostalgia that you could almost see the memories floating through the blue smoke, memories not only of music and joy and youth, but perhaps, of dreams. They listened to the music, each hearing it in his own way, feeling relaxed and a part of the music, a part of each other, and almost a part of the world.“ Requiem for a Dream

„There was a sky somewhere above the tops of the buildings, with stars and a moon and all the things there are in a sky, but they were content to think of the distant street lights as planets and stars. If the lights prevented you from seeing the heavens, then preform a little magic and change reality to fit the need. The street lights were now planets and stars and moon.“ Requiem for a Dream

„i think thats one of the problems with the world today, nobody knows who they are. everyone is running around looking for an identity, or trying to borrow one, only they dont know it. they actually think they know who they are and hat they are? theyre just a bunch of schleppers... who have no idea what a search for personal truth and identity really is, which would be alright if they didn't get in your way, but they insist that they know everything and that if you dont live their way then youre not living properly and they want to take your space away... they actually want to somehow get into your space and live in it and change it or destroy it... they just cant believe that you know what you are doing and that you are happy and content with it. you see thats the problem right there. if they could see that then they wouldnt have to feel threatened and feel that they have to destroy you before you destroy them. they just cant get it through their philistine heads that you are happy where you are and dont want to have anything to do with them. my space is mine and thats enough for me.“ Requiem for a Dream

„But to believe that getting stuff is the purpose and aim of life is madness.“ Requiem for a Dream

„All the energy of their frustration and fear going into their laughter.“ Requiem for a Dream
