“To the edge of the universe and back. Endure and survive.”

From: The Last of Us

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Ellie

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the critically acclaimed Sony PlayStation exclusive game, The Last of Us. Developed by Naughty Dog, the game follows Joel and Ellie as they traverse a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a mutant disease. Not only do they have to contend with monsters and the elements, they also have to deal with other human beings.

The quote comes some time in the middle of the game. Both Joel (played by Troy Baker) and Ellie (played by Ashley Johnson) have just gotten out of a huge battle against some human pillagers. Ellie recalls a quote from one of the characters from a comic she’s reading and tells Joel about it.

Geek wisdom: Life can be hard sometimes and it can feel overwhelming at times. These are the days when you have to grit your teeth and power through it. It’s either that or just giving up.
