QOTD: David Smith, Stonewall Fitness

"Fitness isn't about trying to look perfect, you shouldn't be training to have the perfect body. Fitness is a reflection of who you are, what you are trying to accomplish. Your body is simply the sculpture of who you are as a person. Training purely for aesthetic reasons and trying to be perfect, but without the substance from behind. Be who you are and allow your body to reflect that." - David Smith, Stonewall Fitness

The Quotable Nic Cage

Season of The Witch follows a 14th century Crusader Behmen (Nicholas Cage) and his brother in arms Felson (Ron Perlman) leave the church crusaders and return to their homeland only to find it devastated by the Black Plague. After the Church finally catches up with them, they demand the two to transport an accused witch to a remote and sacred abbey. The accused witch is believed to be to root of the Plague. They must struggle to survive and reach the abbey - where they discover there are much darker forces at hand and saving mankind might be harder than originally thought.

In celebration of Season of The Witch, which is out tomorrow on Blu-ray & DVD, we’ve compiled some of our favorite “Cage sayings” both from his epic films.

Behmen (Season of The Witch): “I pity any man whose last face they see is yours Felson.”

Johnny Blaze (Ghost Rider): "He may have my soul, but he doesn't have my spirit." 

Ben Sanderson (Leaving Las Vegas): "I came here to drink myself to death." 

Dr. Stanley Goodspeed (The Rock): "I love pressure. I eat it for breakfast."

H.I. McDunnough (Rasing Arizona): “We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter. “

Ben Sanderson (Leaving Las Vegas): “I need my drinky.”

Charlie Kaufman (Adaptation): “You and I share the same DNA. Is there anything more lonely than that?”

Sailor (Wild at Heart):  “Did I ever tell ya that this here jacket represents a symbol of my individuality, and my belief in personal freedom?”

Roy (Matchstick Men): “For some people, money is… money is a foreign film without subtitles.”

Quote of the Day: Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations

"Today as we celebrate the birthday of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we must recall that its drafters insisted that it be truly universal—that its reach encompass each and every human soul. 

But while those rights are universally held, they are not yet universally enjoyed. We must not rest until the expanding circle of liberty and equality takes in all of us, gay and straight alike. 

We must all do our part, here at the United Nations and in our own countries, to ensure that no gay man need fear persecution, that no lesbian need fear discrimination, and that no transgender person need fear assault." - Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, during an LGBT Core Group Event Marking Human Rights Day
