Liv

1. Keyser Soze: "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that… he is gone." (The Usual Suspects)

 

2. William Wallace: "Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!" (Braveheart)

 

3. Maximus: "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." (Gladiator)

 

4. Colonel Jessep: "Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to." (A Few Good Men)

 

5. Michael Corleone:  "So the next day, my father went to see him; only this time with Luca Brasi. An' within an hour, he signed a release, for a certified check for $1000. My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Luca Brasi held a gun to his head and my father assured him that either his brains, or his signature, would be on the contract. That's a true story. That's my family, Kay, it's not me." (The Godfather)

 

6. Travis Bickle: "Listen, you fuckers, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take it anymore. A man who stood up against the scum, the cunts, the dogs, the filth, the shit. Here is a man who stood up."  (Taxi Driver)

 

7. Irvine Welsh: “By definition, you have to live until you die. Better to make that life as complete and enjoyable an experience as possible, in case death is shite, which I suspect it will be." (Trainspotting)

 

8.  Irvine Welsh: “Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?” (Trainspotting)

 

9. The Joker: "Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?" (The Dark Knight

 

10. John McClane: "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker." (Die Hard)

 

11. Buzz Lightyear: "To infinity and beyond!" (Toy Story)

 

12. Clemenza: "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli" (The Godfather)

 

13. Carlito: "You think you're big time? You gonna fuckin' die - big time." (Carlito's Way)

 

14. Michael Corleone: "There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." (The Godfather - Part II)

 

15. Clarence: " Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends." ( It's a wonderful Life)

 

16. Bubba: "My given name is Benjamin Buford Blue, but people call me Bubba. Just like one of them ol' redneck boys. Can you believe that?"

Forrest Gump:  "My name's Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump." (Forrest Gump)

 

17. Harry Callahan: "Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" (Dirty Harry)

 

18.  Han Solo: "Chewie, we're home" (Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens)

 

19.  Colonel Walter E. Kurtz: "I've seen horrors, horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that, but you have no right to judge me. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror! Horror has a face, and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies." (Apocalypse Now)

 

20. "May the Force be with you..." (Star Wars - Franchise)

 

21. Sarah: If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever. (The Crow)

    "The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it. (The Wolf of Wall Street) I love this one! People should stop overthinking, including me haha. I think that that was a great role for Leonardo Dicapprio!

    I haven't seen all of these movies but those that I did see, I do remember those quotes as those were the ones that struck me also. Like the one from the Wolf Of Wall Street, one of the best films that I've seen. But I like that one from Candy, it's like something that I could use to people who would give me bullsh*t hahaha...

    I love this one: "Look, but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow." (The Devil's Advocate) :D But how you collect all these quotes? You are watching the movie, hear something that you like, stop the movie and write it down? :) Usually I like to collect quotes from books but never did that for movies :)

    hmm, i haven't watch most of the movies listed here. but carola's #5 choice is truly inspiring for me! i've watched The Wolf of Wall Street trailer and decided that I wouldn't want to watch it, but that quote has changed my mind. I guess I need to go DVD shopping soon.

    I enjoyed reading this entry, and my most favorite is..

    "Please, don't worry so much, because in the end none of us have very long on this earth - life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night, and when a shooting star streaks through the blackness turning night into day, make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular."

    I needed to read this. Thank you so much for sharing them.

    There are some good ones here. I have to admit, I never really paid attention to quotes in movies but I did see some very deep ones. I think one of the best classic movies from where you can take out plenty of good life lessons and quotes is "Forrest Gump"

  • #15

    Me-An Clemente (Monday, 15 August 2016 18:48)

    I've only watched a few of the movies you've taken your favorite quotes from. Anyway, my favorite movie quotes from what you've mentioned are "Do or do not. There is no try." and "To infinity and beyond!" I don't think I'm good at recalling quotes from a movie. Cheers to both of you for remembering all those lines.

    The quote in "The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it." from The Wolf of Wall Street is my favorite as well. I always remind myself of that whenever I feel bored with my job or don't want to continue doing things that I already started.

    How about no 7. Irvine Welsh: “By definition, you have to live until you die. Better to make that life as complete and enjoyable an experience as possible, in case death is shite, which I suspect it will be." (Trainspotting) as the very best in the pot of qoutes?...

    "May the odds be ever in your favour." (The Hunger Games)
    "To infinity and beyond!" (Toy Story)
    These are the lines that I love. :) It's refreshing to read a bunch of movie lines from iconic films. :) I was thinking that these would be great for a parlor game with friends. <3 But Maximus though, feels~~
    "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." (Gladiator)

    Great collections right here but this is my own favourite...
    "My name's Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump." This is really fun.

    This quote is what I liked the most from what you enumerated. "What some folks call impossible, is just stuff they haven't seen before." (What Dreams May Come) I believe that most of our dreams can be made possible if we have the courage and perseverance to work on them. Some people might think we are foolish for pursuing them. But in the end, if we do not stop working on our dreams, we can prove them that it is indeed possible to attain them.

    Oh damn so many epic quotes. After the TV Show quotes post, a movie one make sense. Taxi Driver, Misery, Star Wars, Fight Club, The Dark Knight, you really picked them well. Usual Suspect as well, and gosh there are so many more as well. That's the beauty of the cinema and it's so rich. By the way, you saw Suicide Squad, what did you think about it?

  • #25

    Zwitsy (Wednesday, 17 August 2016 06:48)

    I don't have any particular but there are quotes that I don't forget such as the one you've featured here, the "to infinity and beyond" of Disney - Toy Story and so as the Star Wars' "May the force be with you..."

    ROBERT LEE (Wednesday, 17 August 2016 08:44)

    Movies and TV shows are a great source of quotes. Why? There were written by amazing writers. Of all the quotes you listed, the one that I often use (not exactly the same but similar in message) is: "The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it." It's true. People are very good in making excuses when all one needs is one excuse to do what needs to be done.

    Hi Fenrile,
    We all went to see Suicide Squad and I can't talk for Carola and Sigmund, but I liked it very much. There are a lot of bad revoews out there, but at the end everyone has their own taste in movies and it's just one person's opinion.
    Keep on checking our website. We'll be posting our own review soon!

    You must be a real movie fan to have collected all these quotes. Before, i printed those movie posters on a bondpaper and compiled them to remind myself of the movies i have seen. I also wrote in a notebook quotes I find interesting. Now, i could only wish i didnt throw them. They are memories.

    Sheri (Sunday, 20 November 2016 12:36)

    You have some really great quotes here, and really funny some of them! You know when I watch movies the inspirational posts stand out to me, or life quotes but sometimes it is something so hilarious and I love sharing that with friends. This is a nice Sunday read.

    I love this quotation on #5 which is "The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it. "(The Wolf of Wall Street). It is a slap of truth for me. The dream of traveling has been always a dream until my boyfriend came and made me realize that I should find a way to turn my dream into reality. I guess, fear had a big factor on why I couldn't do what I have loved to do. But now, I am working on it step by step.
