There are literally millions of movies.

Within each movie, hundreds to thousands of quotes. The options for your favorite movie quotes are endless.

Of course, not all movies are created equally, so some definitely stand out more than others.



u/eoghan_mckenna_ asked:

What is the best movie quote you have ever heard?

Here were some of those answers.


An Arnie Film

Barbarian General: "We won again. This is good! But what is best in life?"

Warrior: "The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, wind in your hair!"

General: "Wrong! Conan, what is best in life?"

Conan: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!"

Barbarian General: "That is good."

The Horror Of War

"I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell? The whole hill, smelled like...victory. Someday this war's gonna end."

— Lt. Col. Bill Kilgore (Robert Duvall), Apocalypse Now

Guess This One

(In a thick Gloucester accent)

"No luck catching them killers then?"

"It's just the one killer actually"

"I'd ask you about love, you'd probably quote me a sonnet. But you've never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn't know what it's like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn't know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms "visiting hours" don't apply to you.

You don't know about real loss, 'cause it only occurs when you've loved something more than you love yourself. "

From the movie 'Good Will Hunting'.

The Green Mile

"I'm tired, boss. Tired of being on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. I'm tired of never having me a buddy to be with to tell me where we's going to, coming from, or why. Mostly, I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world...every day. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head...all the time. Can you understand?" :'(

"You ain't gonna believe this, but you used to fit right here. (He gestures to the palm of his hand). I'd hold you up to say to your mother, 'This kid's gonna be the best kid in the world. This kid's gonna be somebody better than anybody I ever knew.' And you grew up good and wonderful. It was great just watchin' you, every day was like a privilege. Then the time come for you to be your own man and take on the world, and you did. But somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you're no good. And when things got hard, you started lookin' for something to blame, like a big shadow.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

Now if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth! But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you! You're better than that!

I'm always gonna love you no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life."

– Rocky Balboa

Ash To Ash

(I'm paraphrasing the set-up a bit)

Evil Ash: You won't shoot me ... because you're good ! I'm Evil Ash and you're Good Ash ! You're a goody little two-shoes, goody little two-shoes, goody little two-shoes !

(Ash shoots Evil Ash with his shot gun )

Ash: Good ... Bad ... I'm the guy with the gun.

A Last Hurrah

When King Lear dies in act five, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He has written, 'He dies.' No more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential piece of dramatic literature is, 'He dies.' Now I am not asking you to be happy at my leaving but all I ask you to do is to turn the page and let the next story begin. -- Mr. Magorium (Mr magoriums wonder emporium)

O Captain My Captain

"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race, and the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."

"No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world."

"We're not laughing at you - we're laughing near you."

"There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."

-- Mr. John keating, Dead poet's Society.

A Sign Of The Times

"It's like the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad has happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines, it'll shine out the clearer. I know now folks in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something. That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for." -Samwise Gamgee

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
