Avatar Quotes

Saturday, July 23 by Nina St. John

These are some great "Avatar" quotes from the wonderfully directed film, "Avatar." The film contains the classic struggle between nature and the ever imposing military-industrial-complex. The film also contains an interesting look at the difference between a physical body and the soul, or "driver," that animates it. These "Avatar" quotes highlight an old struggle within humankind, namely the material versus the spiritual. This old plot is done right with modern cinematography and mind blowing graphics. This film is a great spin on an ancient story.

  1. "I see you" is one of the Avatar quotes that gets repeated several times in this film. It's a simple yet important quote because the meaning of it goes far deeper than anything seen with just the eyes. The most moving moment occurs when this quote is said towards the end when Neytiri is holding the real Jake in her arms, not the avatar. Jake is the one she loves, the real him, regardless of his avatar. She sees his soul and loves him.
  2. "Jake, I'm with Her. She's real." is one of the most moving of the "Avatar" quotes. The character of Dr. Grace Augustine says this quote. It's filled with such awe, that even though this is at the moment she's dying, you're still somehow happy for her. This scientist has finally found what she was looking for, to know that "She" is real. It is an awesome moment in the film.
  3. “Every living thing that crawls, flies or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyes for Jujubes.” This sweeping comment is one of the "Avatar" quotes that gives you a real good idea of how these "aliens" see the world of Pandora. This quote is from the character Colonel Quaritchie who is the most aggressive military guy ever, to the point of being stereotypical. The line is valid, however. There were some real terrifying creatures out in those wilds of Pandora. Rea predators, and those new recruits needed to know what they were up against.
  4. “Sometimes your whole life boils down to one insane move.” This is one of the funnier, yet really insightful, "Avatar" quotes. This is stated by Jake as he decides which side he's on. Sometimes the the most important decisions don't make any sense. Jake's character is facing this dilemma which goes right along with the theme of the film: the debate between what is logical and going with your heart.
  5. "Everything is backwards now, like out there is the true world and in here is the dream." This is stated by the character Jake as he gets deeper and deeper into the world of Pandora. The world out there is rich and full and connected. Then he comes back to the confines not only of the mechanics of the "real" world, but also his own body. This one of the "Avatar" quotes makes you question what is real, and whose truth is the truth.
