For those who think they know better...

"Your deductive powers are a gift from God or chance or a stray shot of sperm or whatever or whoever the hell wrote your life script...
They are a gift, not earned.

You do not know what I know because you have not earned those powers. You are callous with those powers, so you flaunt them and throw them around like a brat with a trust fund.

You haven't had to climb up all the greasy little wrungs, you haven't had to buy your way to the fundraisers, you haven't done the time in that first marriage to the girl with the right father.

You think that you can leap over it all in a single bound. You haven't had to bribe or charm or threaten your way to a seat at that table.

You don't know how to assess your competition because you haven't competed. Don't make me your competition.!"

Robert DeNiro, Limitless, 2011
