Spoon? Sword? Mind? Knight? Destiny? Nature?

(Quotes taken from IMDB.)


- Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
- What truth?
- There is no spoon.
- There is no spoon?
- Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Ying xiong:
I have just come to a realization! This scroll by Broken Sword contains no secrets of his swordsmanship. What this reveals is his highest ideal. In the first state, man and sword become one and each other. Here, even a blade of grass can be used as a lethal weapon. In the next stage, the sword resides not in the hand but in the heart. Even without a weapon, the warrior can slay his enemy from a hundred paces. But the ultimate ideal is when the sword disappears altogether. The warrior embraces all around him. The desire to kill no longer exists. Only peace remains.

The Last Samurai:
- Please forgive; too many mind.
- Too many mind?
- Hai, mind the sword, mind the people watch, mind enemy - too many mind... No mind.
- No mind...

Kingdom of Heaven:
 - Who do you think you are? Will you alter the world? Does making a man a knight make him a better fighter?
 - Yes

The Last Samurai:
 - You believe a man can change his destiny?
 - I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed.

Hunter X Hunter (2011):
 - Gon, you're flawless, a perfect gem. But that pure nature could be your undoing.
