Way to go, Jason who got it right first!
There are so many memorable quotes from the show, Northern Exposure.
A slew of them were broadcast by the character of Chris Stevens, the ex-con turned disk jockey, better known as the "Voice of Cicely". Chris has unique insights on love, life, and the 'whole karmic enchilada', on KBHR - Cicely, Alaska.
My top 3 today:
(one even shows up in my 2nd novel)
Star Wars meets Nietzsche Quote
"There's a dark side to each and every human soul. We wish we were Obi-Wan Kenobi, and for the most part we are, but there's a little Darth Vadar in all of us. Thing is, this ain't no either or proposition. We're talking about dialectics, the good and the bad merging into us. You can run but you can't hide. My experience? Face the darkness, stare it down. Own it. As brother Nietzsche said, being human is a complicated gig. Give that old dark night of the soul a hug! Howl the eternal yes!"
The Meaning of LIght Quote
"Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that's been our unifying cry, "More light." Sunlight. Torchlight. Candlight. Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier's field. Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we're supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light."
DISCONNECTED OR BLISSED OUT QUOTE
"The day is coming, and it ain't going to be long, when you ain't even gonna have to leave your living room. No more schools, nor more bodegas, no more tabernacles, no more cinneplexes. You're going to snuggle up to your fiber optics baby and bliss out."
Do you have any favourite quotes or memories of the show? If you do, I'd love to hear them.
Hoping you're all living out your great karmic enchilada!
