Souls don't die.

April 14th, 2016, 3pm

It was 41°C with nil significant cloud. The breeze was gentle.

Hogarth: [sees the Giant, looking upset about the deer, which was shot] I know you feel bad about the deer. But it’s not your fault. Things die. It’s part of life. It’s bad to kill, but it’s not bad to die.

Giant: You… die?

Hogarth :Well… yes, someday.

Giant: I die?

Hogarth: I don’t know. You’re made of metal… but you have feelings. And you think about things. And that means you have a soul, and souls don’t die.

Giant: Soul?

Hogarth: Mom says it’s something inside of all good things… and that it goes on forever and ever. [Hogarth leaves. The Iron Giant lays back to look at the stars]

Giant: Souls don’t die.

Dialogue Credits: The Iron Giant (1999).

Terra, David Wade and Craig said thanks.
