Quote here, quote there.

"See, this is my opinion. We all start out knowing magic.We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds, and read the clouds, and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow.  We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling, were afraid of our wildness and youth. And because the magic we knew made them chained and sad of what they allowed to wither in themselves. After you go so far away from it, you can't really get it back. You can have seconds of it, just seconds of knowing you remember. When people get weepy at movies its because in that dark theater, the golden pool of magic is touched. Just briefly. Then they come out in the hard sun of logic and reason again and it dries up and they are left feeling a little heart sad and not knowing why. When a song stirs a memory, when motes of dust turning in a shaft of light takes your attention from the world, when you listen to a train passing in the night in the distance, and you wonder where it might be going. You step beyond who you are and where you are. For the briefest of instants, you have the stepped into the magic realm. That's what I believe."

Just another quotes used in One Tree Hill, originally by Robert R. McCammon
