Forget Shakespeare and Nietzsche- modern cinema is where it's at when it comes to good quotes. Some movies are more quotable than the Old Testament (have you SEEN Heathers?), and have made it into the modern vernacular. Here are some of the best ones, courtesy of Reddit.

u/princehalem asked: What is your favorite movie quote of all time?


The Truman Show

"And in case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night."

Pulp Fiction

Giphy

"Does he look like a b*tch?"

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Gladiator

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, 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."

Nazarov-

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

"Listen, strange women, lying in ponds, distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you. I mean, if I went 'round, saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!"

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
