    I'm ready for conventions. You know what's interesting, the sort of questions that Lost raises are of a different sort from this movie.

    Lawyers are necessary in a community. Some of you...take a different view; but as I am a member of that legal profession, or was at one time, and have only lost standing in it to become a politician, I still retain the pride of the profession.

Souls can't move that quickly, and are left behind, and must be awaited, upon arrival, like lost luggage.

    All the charm of the angler's life would be lost but for these hours of thought and memory. All along the brook, all day on lake or river, while he takes his sport, he thinks. All the long evenings in camp, or cottage, or inn, he tells stories of his own life, hears stories of his friend's lives, and if alone calls up the magic of memory.
    — William Cowper Prime

The oakShall send his roots abroad, and pierce thy mold.
