Logan:  “You know, the smallest thing can change your life.”

Logan:  “Sometimes finding the light means you must pass through the deepest darkness.  At least, that’s how it was for me.”

Logan:  “I guess I’m still trying to figure out where I belong.  I know there are now easy answers.  Maybe all I need is time to figure it out.”

Beth to her grandmother, Ellie, about Logan:  “You don’t know anything about him.”

                Ellie:  “Neither do you.”

Beth to Ellie:  “Does he have an off switch?”

                Ellie: “I hope not.”

Ellie:  “You live long enough, you learn to appreciate the memories you have and stop begrudging the ones you never got to make.”

Logan:  “I’m sorry Beth.  I didn’t come here to make things harder for you.”

                Beth:  “You don’t know what I’m dealing with.”

                Logan:  “I do know that you deserve better than this.”

Logan to Keith:  “I’ve known guys like you all my life.  You think a gun and a badge make you something because you carry them.”

Ben to Logan about playing violin in church:  “What if I screw up?”

                Logan:  “That’s the best part about playing in a church:  a forgiving audience.”

Logan to Ben:  “You’ll be the guy next to me.  That’s how marines work.  You don’t worry about yourself.  You worry about the guy standing next to you.”

Logan to Beth about finding that picture of her:  “Finding something like that in a war was like finding an angel in hell.  So I kept it with me.  And I survived a lot of things I had no right to.  I promised myself if I got out I’d find that girl and thank her.”

Logan:  “How do you explain something you can’t understand yourself?”

Beth to Ellie about the picture:  “It was Drake’s.  It was supposed to keep him alive.”

Ben to Logan:  “I thought I was the guy next to you.”

                Logan:  “You’re my best buddy.  I’ll always be next to you.”

Beth to Ellie:  “Of course it’s all down to fate.  None of us have any choice….So you’re saying Drake died so Logan could live?”

                Ellie:  “No honey.  It’s not Logan’s fault that he survived.”

Logan:  “Everyone has their own destiny.  Not everyone makes the choice to follow it.  I’m lucky I did.”
