Quote

Part of this quote is heard in the movie Equilibrium (awesome movie!), and it always strikes me when I hear it.

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

- W.B. Yeats

I just added Equilibrium to my Netflix queue. I trust Steve and I will like it. ;)

I've heard this quote somewhere else though, I just can't place where. It's a good one.

I'll warn you; the acting is not the best in the movie. Especially Taye Diggs, but I dislike him anyway. :)

The story is freakin awesome though, and even though the fight scenes are outside the realm of reality they are nearly as cool as the matrix fight scenes. :)
