“Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it’ll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.”

Kevin Hart

Geniuses read very quickly

The average reading speed of an ordinary man is 230 words per minute. This is about 2 pages. Pretty solid, right? Well, not for the sharpest among us! Napoleon, for example, read at a rate of 2,000 words per minute, while Balzac could finish a small novel in just half an hour!

Movie/TV Quote

"I want to play a game."

Saw (2004)

The nearly $1 billion success of the Saw franchise is bewildering to viewers who dismiss the ultra-violent movies as empty exercises in what's often referred to as "torture porn," but the appeal is right there in this simple, terrifying phrase: "I want to play a game." It's all a bit of fun, don't you see? As far as villains go, Tobin Bell's mask-wearing Jigsaw was always on the chatty side -- not prone to Freddie Kruger-like puns, but also not a silent slasher like Michael Myers or Jason -- and his video message to poor Amanda Young, fighting for her life in a reverse bear trap in the first-ever Saw, is a stark bit of instructional sadism from screenwriter Leigh Whannell, who flipped the studied terror of Seven into an even grimer low-budget brainteaser. He's establishing the convoluted rules of a game you'd never want to play, rewriting the recent history of the horror genre in the process.
