"Man thinks they are each alone in this world. It is not true. You are all connected. One act can one day affect all."
"There is a veil that covers the eyes of man creating an illusion to the things we cannot see. There is so much more to this world but without removing the veil one may not ever see it."
"...if we think that it is too difficult to help heal the world, that it is just too big then to me this is giving up, we must do whatever it takes to help humanity, life, and the planet heal. It is our duty as children of the creator of this earth and the universe. To feel that you have the ability to change this world is the greatest tool you have."
"But man has forgotten how to listen". The awakening of man will only happen when man begins to listen to his creator. But man has forgotten how to listen..."

M. Night Shyamalan's 'Lady in the Water' stands out from every other film in theatres because it does something that most films forget to do: it speaks. Hollywood lost this touch somewhere after 'Sunset Boulevard' and 'It's a Wonderful Life.' There are no more James Stewarts, Frank Capras or Gloria Swansons to tug at the heart strings; to find fears and joys that are common in every human and to bring it to the screen in a way that everyone understands. However, M. Night Shyamalan has brought this emotion back to the silver screen in the form of a bedtime story. 'Lady in the Water' found its beginnings through Shyamalan's creative genius in the form of a child's story. Shyamalan claims to have told this story to his own children...."
"What makes 'Lady in the Water' not only a good story, but a good film is the message that it carries. This film supports the ideal that people still serve a purpose in this world, and that through supernatural power or simply by strange occurence we are where we are for a reason. Even the most insignificant people have a reason to exist. And that is an undeniably comforting truth in a world where one of our greatest fears is to be alone and without a cause to live. That is what makes M. Night Shyamalan a great director, he recognizes a common issue that every human deals with and through a dark theatre, he speaks to all of us in our own way. This type of film is not accepted by some because this is a truth that many fail to recognize." LINK

"Humans are spiritually blind and deaf. Using only the material physical eyes and ears will not enable you to percieve anything spiritual. We all have the ability to enter that deeper, more real reality, but without the flame of desire for it, you will never find it. You are kept blind by your deep attachment to the material world and lack of longing for what is beyond this illusion of stuff that will disintegrate, and actually has no meaning at all in the bigger picture. "Do not ridicule that which you are to blind to see. In a bigger reality, you may be the fool in this."
