Children of Men Quotes

  • Jasper: Yeah, there you go! Julian and Theo met among a million protesters in a rally by chance. But they were there because of what they believed in in the first place, their faith. They wanted to change the world. And their faith kept them together. But by chance, Dylan was born.
    Kee: This is him?
    Jasper: Yeah, that's him. He'd have been about your age. Magical child. Beautiful. Their faith put in praxis.
    Miriam: Praxis? What happened?
    Jasper: Chance. He was their sweet little dream. He had little hands, little legs, little feet. Little lungs. And in 2008, along came the flu pandemic. And then, by chance, he was gone. You see, Theo's faith lost out to chance. So, why bother if life's going to make its own choices?

  • Jasper: Pull my finger
    Jasper: Pull my finger.

  • Theo Faron: It's a girl, Luke.

  • Theo Faron: Same as every other day. Woke up, felt like shit. Went to work, felt like shit.

  • Miriam: As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.

  • Theo Faron: I can't really remember when I last had any hope, and I certainly can't remember when anyone else did either. Because really, since women stopped being able to have babies, what's left to hope for?
