That's Doug the Head. Everybody knows Doug the Head. If it's stones and it's stolen, he's the
man to speak to. Pretends he's Jewish. Wishes he was Jewish. Even tells his family they're
Jewish, but he's about as Jewish as he is a fucking monkey. He thinks it's good for business.
And in the diamond business, it is good for business.
Snatch, 2000

Diamonds are to be found only in the darkness of the earth, and truth in the darkness of the
mind.

the price of diamonds, and I will never allow patriotism to triumph over humanity as long as I
live.
Rabindranath Tagore

Diamond cut diamond.
English proverb

If there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we
will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates
like a diamond falling to a jeweller's felt so that we should never hear it. Love me, because
love doesn't exist, and I have tried everything that does.
Jonathan Safran Foer

Each of us is at this moment standing in the midst of his or her own acres of diamonds.
Explore the pasture you are in. Don't run from one thing to another forever looking for the pot
of gold. Stay where you are until you find what you seek. Let your mind thoroughly explore
the possibilities in what you are presently doing.
Earl Nightingale

He's so tight that if you stuck a piece of coal up his ass in two weeks you'd have a diamond.
Matthew Broderick
