Movie Quote of the Day – The Prestige, 2006 (dir. Christopher Nolan)
Robert Angier: I need something impossible.
Nikola Tesla: You’re familiar with a phrase ‘Man’s reach exceeds his grasp’? It’s a lie. Man’s grasp exceeds his nerve. Society only tolerates one change at time. The first time I changed the world I was hailed as a visionary. The second time I was asked politely to retire. And so here I am. Enjoying “retirement.” Nothing is impossible, Mr. Angier. What you want is simply expensive.
