A Single Man Quotes

Colin Firth as George

  • (Colin Firth) "A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp. And the world seems so fresh as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."
  • (Colin Firth) "It's all becoming so bland. That's not why I came to America. It's like a complete breakdown of culture and manners."

  • (Colin Firth) "What did you say?"
  • (Julianne Moore) "I looked him straight in the eye and said, "Let's just say, if I stood on my head, I would be a natural brunette with lovely breath.""
  • (Colin Firth) "For the first time in my life I can't see my future. Every day goes by in a haze, but today I have decided will be different."
  • (Colin Firth) "You know that only thing that has made the whole thing worthwhile has been those few times that I was able to truly connect with another person."
  • (Colin Firth) "There's no such thing as old anymore. The other day, one of my students called me a senior citizen."
  • (Julianne Moore) "I wouldn't mind if old didn't exist. But I'm not sure that senior is what I'm aiming for, either."
  • (Colin Firth) "Waking up begins with saying am and now. For the past eight months waking up has actually hurt. The cold realization that I am still here slowly sets in."
  • (Colin Firth) "The bathroom's just down the hall, if you'd like to take a shower."
  • (Nicholas Hoult) "Aren't you taking a shower too, Sir?"
  • (Colin Firth) "Oh, I'm fine, I'm English, we like to be cold and wet."
  • (Colin Firth) "Looking in the mirror staring back at me isn't so much a face as the expression of a predicament."
  • (Colin Firth) "It takes time in the morning for me to become George, time to adjust to what is expected of George and how he is to behave. By the time I have dressed and put the final layer of polish on the now slightly stiff but quite perfect George I know fully what part I'm supposed to play."
  • (Colin Firth) "Let's leave the Jews out of this just for a moment. Let's think of another minority. One that -- One that can go unnoticed if it needs to. There are all sorts of minorities, blondes for example -- Or people with freckles. But a minority is only thought of as one when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority. A real threat or an imagined one. And therein lies the fear. If the minority is somehow invisible, then the fear is much greater. That fear is why the minority is persecuted. So, you see there always is a cause. The cause is fear. Minorities are just people. People like us."
  • (Colin Firth) "Go to London. Change your life. And if you're not happy being a woman, stop acting like one."
  • (Colin Firth) "Just get through the god**** day."
  • (Colin Firth) "Let's leave the Jews out of this just for a moment and think of another minority, one that can go unnoticed if it has to."

  • (Jon Kortajarena) "Come on. What could be so serious for a guy like you?"
  • (Colin Firth) "I'm just trying to get over an old love I guess."
  • (Jon Kortajarena) "My mother says that lovers are like buses. You just have to wait a little while and another one comes along."
  • (Jon Kortajarena) "No one has ever picked me up and not wanted something."
  • (Colin Firth) "I think you picked me up."

Lee Pace as Grant

  • (Matthew Goode) "Do you ever just live in the moment? It's like now, what could be better than being tucked here with you? -- I mean, if I died right now it would be OK."
