    “What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient… highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed – fully understood – that sticks; right in there somewhere.” – Inception

    I could quote almost anything from that movie (and probably off the top of my head, considering how many times I’ve watched it…). I love it, there are so many thoughtful and funny quotes in it. I love this particular one because I think you can easily apply it to real life.
