"Do you think we're cursed, Pete? The Osborns, I mean?"

"Honestly? Yes, Harry, I think you are. I think you're cursed by your father. You're suffering for Norman Osborn's sins. But I think every child carries the burdens of their parents. For me, the burden's been not having any. And it's been losing the man who was like a father to me. MJ's dad abused her. Carlie's dad drinks, And Lily...well, she obviously has her own father issues. My point is... we all have our cross to bear. All of us. It may seem like it's heavier for some than for others, but it's not. Everybody's got something. The thing is...the question is...what do we do about it? A curse only means something if we let it define us, if we let it defeat us."

~Peter Parker in "The Amazing Spider-man: Election Day.

It was one of the newer ones, and they have a tendency to be more thoughtful, and yes, even deep. :)
