• Root: By your own definition, Cyrus is irrelevant.
  • Finch: Everyone is relevant to someone.
  • Root: That man has spent every day of his life believing that there is actually some sort of higher plan. That's the problem with humans--they just sit around, hoping that someone will fix things. But no one will, no one cares. The universe is infinite and chaotic and cold. And there has never been a plan. At least not till now.
  • ...
  • And the punchline is that your machine keeps telling me to save Cyrus. How badly did you have to break it to make it care about people so much?
  • Finch: That didn't break it. It's what made it work. It was only after I taught the machine that people mattered that it could begin to be able to help them. I'd like to do the same thing for you if you'd let me.
  • --"Person of Interest," S03E17
"Be humble, but don’t shrink yourself down to the bone. Be brave. Be kind. Be understanding. There’s a lot ahead of you. Use your head alongside your heart. Be kind. Be mindful of the way you speak to others and the impact you have on their lives. Be kind. Everyone is fighting a hard battle. Be kind. And don’t be ashamed to color outside the lines."

  • Casey: I started coding when I was ten. I could debug a system easier than carry a conversation. Guess I was never much of a people person.
  • Finch: I'd say you're doing just fine for now. But I do know what you mean: sometimes people can be rather complicated; a computer only does what you've programmed it to do.

"I mean, I know it’s probably just a terrible folly, but, still, I can’t help sometimes imagining that this crazy enterprise might just come off. You know, with a bit of luck and with the right people. And you, you are most definitely, most definitely one of the most rightest people that I’ve had the good fortune to come across. If you’ll forgive the grammatical inadequacies of that sentence."

The Alternate Routes — “Nothing More”

To be humble, to be kind.
It is the giving of the peace in your mind.
To a stranger, To a friend
To give in such a way that has no end.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

To be bold, to be brave.
It is the thinking that the heart can still be saved
And the darkness can come quick
The Dangers in the Anger and the hanging on to it.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

Tell me what it is that you see
A world that’s filled with endless possibilities?
Heroes don’t look they used to, they look like you do.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More
