While the worst of Hurricane Sandy may be over for the East Coast, the devastation that it's caused from damaged property to widespread power outages to the heartbreaking loss of life has taken its toll on those in the region and beyond. It's been a rough 24 hours. If anybody deserves a pick-me-up, it's the Northeast.
To keep morale up and spirits high, we've compiled some of our favorite quotes from movies and TV shows that all collectively say one very important thing: Hey, screw you, Sandy! Check them out:
Beasts of the Southern Wild : Okay, you could pick just about any line from the beautiful, haunting film about a little girl named Hushpuppy living in a ravaged post-storm bayou with her father. But this one feels especially fitting: ""I see that I am a little piece of a big, big universe, and that makes it right.""
Manhattan: ""New York was his town and it always would be.""
Tree of Life: ""There are two ways through life the way of nature and the way of grace. You have to choose the one that you will follow.""
The Fountain: ""Every shadow, no matter how deep, is threatened by morning light."
The Karate Kid: "Life will knock us down, but we can choose whether or not to stand back up."
The Count of Monte Cristo: ""Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes."
Mulan: "No matter how the wind howls, the mountain cannot bow to it."
The Hurricane: "You can't break me because you didn't make me."
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: ""Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right then it's not the end."
Six Feet Under: ""Why do people have to die?....To make life important. None of us know how long we've got. Which is why we have to make each day matter.""
Friday Night Lights: Because Coach Taylor makes everything right. ""Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable and we will all at some point in our lives... fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested. It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.""
