Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 8: "Rings of Akhaten" Quotes
Well? Come on then. Eat up. You're full? I expect so. Because there's quite a difference between what was and what should have been. There's an awful lot of one but there's an infinity of the other. An infinity is too much, even for your appetite.The Doctor
Still hungry? Well I've brought something for you. This. The most important leaf in human history. The most important leaf in human history! It's full of stories, full of history. Full of a future that never got lived, days that should have been but never were. Passed onto me. This leaf isn't just the past, it's a whole future that never happened. There are millions and millions of unlived days but every day we live an infinity. All the days that never came, and these were my mum's.Clara

Man: So I've got something for ya.
Woman: What? Ya kept it?
Man: Of course I kept it.
Man: Because this exact leaf had to grow in that exact way, in that exact place, so that precise wind could tear it from that precise branch and make it fly into this exact face at that exact moment. And, if just one of those tiny little things had never had happened, I'd never have met ya. Which makes this leaf the most important leaf in human history.
