    • Darren Lynn Bousman and Leigh Whannell; Saw II
  • Real survivalists don’t run off into the woods; they stay and work to prevent disaster.
  • There walked a lonely man, silent, mute, the only man
Not knowing how, not knowing why was he the sole survivor
Why should he be alive, breathing still while others died
And the only question, why was he the sole survivor?
* Blue Oyster Cult, Sole Survivor, Fire of unknown origin, lyrics by Erik Bloom, John Trivers, and Liz Myers
  • Most people, it seems, think that Robinson Crusoe, when he landed on his Island, had nothing to keep him from starvation or anything else. As a matter of fact, he had twelve raft loads of supplies that he took off the wrecked ship. He had as much food and furniture as if he had had a delicatessen store and Fifth Avenue outside his hut.

  • What doesn't kill you makes you stranger.
  • Humanity will ever seek but never attain perfection. Let us at least survive and go on trying.
  • If survival calls for the bearing of arms, bear them you must. But the most important part of the challenge is for you to find another means that does not come with the killing of your fellow man.
    • Rod Serling, speech at Binghamton Community High School (1968)
  • The survival of the fittest.
  • Hello, Mr. Hindle... or, as they called you around the hospital, Zep. I want you to make a choice. There's a slow-acting poison coursing through your system, which only I have the antidote for. Will you murder a mother and her child to save yourself? Listen carefully, if you will; there are rules.
  • Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive. But not you. Not anymore.
