The Fall (2006)

All that can be certain about Cesare’s end is that he died as he had lived, violently, alone, fighting against the odds. He died, and therefore he failed, but he might have succeeded. Few men are born, as he was, with a sense of their own destiny and a will to achieve it so strong that they are prepared to sacrifice anything to that end, and it is not necessarily a recipe for inevitable failure. The lust for power is as strong and all-consuming as the compulsion of creative genius. Cesare was ruthless, amoral, in many ways a political gangster, if a brilliant one, but the single-minded drive and ability with which he pursued his destiny gave him the qualities of genius. The essence of the man who was Cesare Borgia is expressed in his own prophetic motto: ‘Either Caesar or nothing.’

Take a Chance on Me — ABBA

if you’re all alone
when the pretty birds have flown
honey, i’m still free
take a chance on me

You said I killed you—haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe—I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul! - Wuthering Heights (2011)

"I’ve heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan. You stole your father’s armor, ran away from home, impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese Army, destroyed my palace, and… you have saved us all."
