Life of Pi (film) Quotes

Adil Hussain as Santosh Patel

  • (Adil Hussain) "Spectacle. Don't let the stories and pretty lights fool you, boys. Religion is darkness."
  • (Adil Hussain) "Animals don't think like we do. People who forget that get themselves killed. When you look into an animal's eyes, you are seeing your own emotions reflected back at you, and nothing else."
  • (Adil Hussain) "She asked if you have something vegetarian."
  • (Cook) "Ah. The cow that produced this liver was vegetarian. The pigs that went into these sausages were vegetarian."
  • (Adil Hussain) "We will sail like Columbus."
  • (Tabu) "But Columbus was looking for India."
  • (Adil Hussain) "Piscine, you cannot follow three different religions at the same time."
  • (Pi Patel (11) "Why not?"
  • (Adil Hussain) "Because, believing in everything at once is the same thing as believing in nothing."
  • (Tabu) "He is young, Santosh. He is still trying to find his own way."
  • (Adil Hussain) "And how can he find his own way if he does not learn to choose a path? Instead of leaping from one religion to the next, why not start with reason? In ten years science has taught us more about the universe than religion has in ten-thousand."
  • (Tabu) "Yes, that is true. Science is very good at teaching us what is out there --"
  • (Tabu) "But not what is in here."
  • (Adil Hussain) "Some eat meat, some vegetarian. I do not expect us to agree about everything, but I would much rather have you believe in something I don't agree with, than to accept everything blindly."

Tabu as Pi Patel

  • (Tabu) "Hunger can change everything you thought you knew about yourself."
  • (Tabu) "Then the ship sank. What else do you want from me?"
  • (Younger Insurance Investigator) "A story that won't make us look like fools."
  • (Older Insurance Investigator) "We need a simpler story for our report. One our company can understand. A story we can all believe."
  • (Tabu) "So, a story without things you've never seen before."
  • (Older Insurance Investigator) "That's right."
  • (Tabu) "Without surprises, without animals, or islands?"
  • (Older Insurance Investigator) "Yes, the truth."
  • (Rafe Spall) "So, what did you do?"
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "I told them another story."
  • (Tabu) "Why are you scaring him? I lost my family. I lost everything. I surrender. What more do you want?"
  • (Tabu) "God? I give myself to you. I am your vessel. Whatever comes, I want to know. Show me."
  • (Tabu) "He was such an evil man. But worse still, he brought the evil out in me. I have to live with that."
  • (Tabu) "Words are all I have left to hang on to. Everything's all mixed up, fragmented, can't tell daydreams, nightdreams from reality anymore."
  • (Tabu) "We're dying, Richard Parker. I'm sorry."
  • (Tabu) "What does this mean?"
  • (Tabu) "In the dance, you went from pataka which means the forest. And then you did, and you did -- samputa, which means something that is hidden. And after that you did this -- And then you did chatura. But at the very end, you did this."
  • (Tabu) "None of the other dancers did that. What did you mean? The god of love is hiding in the forest?"
  • (Shravanthi Sainath) "No, that also means the lotus flower."
  • (Tabu) "Lotus flower is hiding in the forest? Why would a lotus flower hide in the forest?"
  • (Tabu) "Richard Parker, come out you have to see this. It's beautiful."
  • (Tabu) "For castaways who must share their lifeboats with large, dangerous carnivores, it is advisable to establish a territory as your own. The following course of action is recommended. Step one: Choose a day when waves are moderate, but regular. Step two: with the lifeboat facing into the waves, making the ride as comfortable as possible, blow your whistle soothingly. Step three: turn the boat sideways to the waves, accompanied by harsh, aggressive use of the whistle. With sufficient repetition, the animal will associate the sound of the whistle with the discomfort of seasickness. Similar methods have long been used by circus trainers, though they generally lack access to rough seas."
  • (Tabu) "MINE. You understand? Yours, mine. You understand?"
  • (Tabu) "Step four: disregard steps one through three."
  • (Tabu) "I never thought a small piece of shade could bring me so much happiness. That a pile of tools, a bucket, a knife, a pencil, might become my greatest treasures. Or that knowing Richard Parker was here might ever bring me peace. In times like these, I remember that he has as little experience of the real world as I do. We were both raised in a zoo by the same master. Now we've been orphaned, left to face our ultimate master together. Without Richard Parker, I would have died by now. My fear of him keeps me alert. Tending to his needs gives my life purpose."
  • (Tabu) "It's a thunderstorm. Let's go watch."
  • (Ravi Patel) "Are you crazy? We will get hit by lightning."
  • (Tabu) "No, we won't. It will hit the bridge first."
  • (Ravi Patel) "Don't tempt a storm, Pi."
  • (Tabu) "Welcome to Pi's Ark."

Rafe Spall as Writer

  • (Adult Pi Patel) "So which story do you prefer?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "The one with the tiger. That's the better story."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Thank you. And so it goes with God."
  • (Rafe Spall) "It's an amazing story."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Now we have to send our little boy to the middle of the Pacific."
  • (Rafe Spall) "And make me believe in God."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Yes, we will get there."
  • (Rafe Spall) "Mr. Patel's is an astounding story, courage and endurance unparalleled in the history of ship-wrecks. Very few castaways can claim to have survived so long, and none in the company of an adult Bengal tiger."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "What has mamaji already told you?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "He said you had a story that would make me believe in God."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "He would say that about a nice meal."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Faith is a house with many rooms."
  • (Rafe Spall) "But no room for doubt?"
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Oh plenty, on every floor. Doubt is useful, it keeps faith a living thing. After all, you cannot know the strength of your faith until it is tested."
  • (Rafe Spall) "So, you were raised in a zoo?"
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Born and raised. In Pondicherry, in what was the French part of India. My father owned the zoo, and I was delivered on short notice by a herpetologist, who was there to check on the Bengal monitor lizard. Mother and I were both healthy, but the poor lizard escaped and was trampled by a frightened cassowary. The way of karma, huh? The way of God."
  • (Rafe Spall) "I don't know what to say."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "It's hard to believe, isn't it?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "It is a lot to take in. To figure out what it all means."
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "If it happened, it happened. Why should it have to mean anything?"
  • (Rafe Spall) "I didn't know Hindus said 'Amen.'"
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "Catholic Hindus do."
  • (Rafe Spall) "Catholic Hindus?"
  • (Adult Pi Patel) "We get to feel guilty before hundreds of gods instead of just one."
