    the first cut is not the deepest. the first cut is nothing. you can spit in my face once or twice, and it is nothing. you can take something away from me, and i can learn to live without it. but you cannot take everything that belongs to me, one thing at a time until you have got down to reaching for my eyes, my heart, and my soul. you cannot do this and say that it is nothing.

    years ago i made a song with this sample. after a HD-crash i lost it and after googling for hours and hours i'm still no closer to finding the movie i got it from. there are a few results on google that say it's either from 'Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story' or 'Our deepest fear'. i watched the first one but nothing(oh the pun) and i'm unable to find 'our deepest fear' (apart from that it seems to be the subtitle for a movie called 'Primal fear' which i'm currently watching).
    what i also found out is that it's a quote from jack henry abbott's book 'In the Belly of the Beast' which also has a movie that was based on it called 'Ghosts... of the civil dead' but that one also doesnt seem to be the one. so now i'm basically going nuts and am hoping someone here knows where this is from

    have you considered to just record yourself or some friend reading the quote? :D
    maybe just as a placeholder until you'll eventually find the original...

    yeah i did consider using the speechsynth from plogue or as you said having someone read it out loud, i just dont think it will have the same impact as the sample has, it had a lot of emotion in it

    It sounds quite bizarre. I'm pretty sure to have heard that in an other movie than Ghosts...of, but not in those the related in this thread... Maybe a director stole the whole sentence. Going to try to find it by my side. stay tuned

    thanks man, highly appreciated that you're giving it a shot

    So I didn't find anything more on the web for the moment. Do you still have your song, or it's also gone with your HD ? it may be helped listening to the actor's voice. At least, if I remember where else I heard the quotes, you'll be the first to know it.
