Normal is not something to aspire to, it is something to get away from.

True Strength cannot be measured, only witnessed.
If you want a happy ending, it depends on where you stop the story.
Neal Caffrey, White Collar (3.11 Checkmate)
Sherlock Holmes: Punch me in the face.
John Watson: Punch you?
Sherlock Holmes: Yes, punch me, in the face. Didn’t you hear me?
John Watson: I always hear “punch me in the face” when you’re speaking, but it’s usually subtext.
[Sherlock punches Watson in the face and Watson punches him back, before jumping onto his back and grabbing him in a chokehold]
Sherlock Holmes: Okay, I think that’s enough now.
John Watson: You want to remember, Sherlock, I was a soldier. I killed people!
Sherlock Holmes: You were a doctor!
John Watson: I had bad days!

I imagine John Watson thinks love’s a mystery to me, but the chemistry is incredibly simple and very destructive. When we first met, you told me that disguise is always a self portrait - how true of you- the combination to your safe, your measurements… but this, this is far more intimate, this is your heart and you should never let it rule your head. You could have chosen any random number and walked out of here with everything you worked for, but you just couldn’t resist it, could you? I’ve always assumed that love is a dangerous disadvantage. Thank you for the final proof.

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
