movies-great-way-to-learn

Movies are a great way to learn. From other people’s cultures to history, there’s no end to what you can learn.

For every movie that made the box office, there’s a team of talented writers and actors. These people made your favorite movie a piece of wonder.

While most people focus on the action, there’s a gold mine most people neglect — quotes.

This post will show you some of the best 25 quotes from movies that’ll help you on life’s journey.

1. “The hardest choices require the strongest wills.”  —  Thanos, Avengers Infinity War

movies-great-way-to-learn

Whether you hate Thanos or not, this quote is very true. Whatever life decision, you decide to make, you need extreme guts to choose a path that affects you most. This is true of a career, choosing a life partner or changing your jobs.

2. “Eitri, this isn’t about your hands. every weapon you’ve ever designed, every ax, hammer, sword. It’s all inside your head.”  —  Thor, Avengers Infinity War

When Thanos decimated the land of the dwarfs, the dwarf king complained that he could not make a new weapon for Thor due to Thanos cutting off his hands.

Thor’s words here are not only for Eitri but for us as well. Your mind is the first tool you should beckon on. You might say “If I have X, I’ll do Y”. However, most times X comes and we don’t do Y because we have not won the battle in our mind.

3. “Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source.”  —  Iroh, Episode 09, Season 2, The Last Airbender

The feeling of shame comes because of our unmet expectations. If we see beyond the pride, and that we’re merely humans who can fail, we will start overcoming the feeling of shame.

4. “Remember, they love money so pretend like you won a gold mine and you’re in the club.”  —  Molly Brown

Behaving as if you are successful already can be a catalyst for success. Many books and studies have shown this.

5. “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”  —  Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone)

Friends can be disastrous, even more than enemies. You know your enemies put you on your foot, but your friends can make you feel comfortable. You need a good deal of guts and judgments when dealing with your friends, hence you might be heading on to the gallows.

6. “So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”  —  Gandalf, The Lord of the Ring (The Fellowship of the Ring)

You can’t slow down and fast forward time. You can’t even decide what time to live, you only found yourself here at this present time. Wisdom means you have to use the time wisely as time lost can’t be recovered. You can’t do that with physical possessions.

7. The Empire Strikes Back

empire-strikes-back-quote

8. “Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done”.  —  Rocky Balboa, Rocky Balboa

9. “Great men are not born great, they grow great.”  —  Mario Puzzo, The Godfather

First, this quote applies to everyone whether you’re a man or a woman. You become great by being great. You show greatness. If greatness is about being born with it, the powerful men today would have been people born into power or wealth. However, the most powerful people in the world are not born into monarchy, power or wealth. You have to work hard to become great, there’s no shortcut.

10. “No one ever made a difference by being like everybody else.”  —  PT Barnum, The Greatest Showman

PT Barnum despite not pedigree. No background. He was able to make something out of his life, becoming the greatest showman of recent history. Although he never said this in real life, his life was full of surprises. This helped him better than his talent. Steve Jobs summarized it in “Think Different”, the Apple slogan.

11. “There’s no place like home.”  —  Glinda, The Wizard of Oz

This quote is one of the reasons, the Wizard of Oz has remained a fan favorite. No matter what we do, we’ll still go back to our various homes at the end of the day. No matter the reason for our leaving home, we should not forget that we’ll always come back home. It is wisdom for us to keep our home calm in all aspects so we’ll be comfortable when we return.

12. “Love cannot be found where it doesn’t exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does.” — David Schwimmer, Kissing a Fool

You simply can’t force love. It’s unrealistic to think you can make someone love you. It happens, but that’s not frequent. Someone who loves you will show it and appreciate it.

13. “Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want”  —  Patrick Verona, 10 Things I Hate About You

Most people live an unproductive life because people talked them out of it. Don’t allow anyone to do that to you. You know what you want, go get it.

14. “You got a dream… you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you cannot do it. If you want something, goes get it.”  —  Christopher Gardner, The Pursuit of Happyness

You can only be happy if you follow your dream. The worst regret is when you’re on your death bed thinking of things you should have done. You hardly regret what you did.

15. “What we do in life echoes in eternity”  —  Maximus, Gladiator

What we do in life echoes in eternity

If you want to be remembered for anything, you should make reasonable choices.

16. The past can hurt. —  Rafiki, The Lion King

The past can hurt - The Lion King

This is one of the amazing scenes of Lion King. Wise people learn from their past. It’s only foolish people that don’t learn from their past.

17. Choices Matter

Choices Matter

18. “The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should be treated with great caution.”  —  Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone)

Not everyone wants to hear the truth. That doesn’t mean you should tell them lies instead. Rather, be careful. Learn how to be diplomatic with the truth, hence you will make enemies for yourself. You won’t like that.

19. “Our lives are defined by the opportunities, even the ones we miss”  —  Benjamin Button, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

20. “You have to get lost before you find yourself.”  —  Margo Roth Spiegelman, Paper Towns

Since none of us came with a map, it’s logical that we’ll get lost. However, make sure you find yourself.

21. Shrek

Shrek Trust who you are.

22. “Never be in a hurry. You’ll miss the best part in life.”  —  Marlene Dietrich, Around the World in Eighty Days

23. “In this life, you don’t have to prove nothin’ to nobody but yourself.”  —  Fortune, Rudy

24. “We never lose our demons, Mardo. We only learn to live above them.”  —  The Ancient One, Doctor Strange

We’re humans and are not perfect. We’ll continue to make mistakes or behave wildly. What we can do, however, is to better ourselves daily. Reading, meditation, and socializing are some of the ways of bettering ourselves.

25. “I never look, darling. It distracts me from the now.”  —  Edna Mode, The Incredibles

Focusing on the moment is what leads to a great life. Stop looking back to the past. Never get fixated on the future, you will end up missing the amazing things happening around you.

Evans asks Thomas and his daughter Penelope to drive him into town in their wagon in order to send an urgent telegram. The telegram contains a land claim and is sent to the land recorder’s office. The Quaker family is ignoring the town doctor’s advice to rid themselves of the gunfighter and they compassionately tend to the delirious Evans

Angel and the Badman (1947) best quotes and movie lines

Quirt Evans: I thought you weren’t allowed to work on Sunday.
Penelope Worth: Oh, Quirt, there’s nothing we’re not allowed to do. It’s just that we don’t believe in doing what we know is wrong.
Quirt Evans: Well, that makes it pretty much each fella’s own guess.
Penelope Worth: But each fella knows inside.
Quirt Evans: Well, there’s a lot of gents I wouldn’t want to give that much leeway to.

 

Quirt Evans: Funny thing about pancakes: I lose my appetite for ’em after the first couple a dozen.
Mrs. Worth: Aw, they weren’t very good this morning… too heavy.

 

[Quirt got Frederick Carson to release some water, and they’ve come to the Worth farm]
Quirt Evans: [to Penny] Well, it looks like your prayers straightened everything out.
Penelope Worth: So you think your gun changed Frederick Carson, hmm?
Quirt Evans: Who says I pointed a gun?
Penelope Worth: I do.
Quirt Evans: Well, I didn’t.
Penelope Worth: Then he gave in more easily than I expected. Thee remembers this, Quirt: the Lord moves in a mysterious manner at times, using strange methods and odd instruments.
Quirt Evans: Me?
Penelope Worth: [nods “yes]
Quirt Evans: Well that would be odd.

 

Dr. Mangrum: But of course if you’re determined to watch over him, Penny, perhaps you’d better take a pencil and paper with you. His first conscious words should be recorded. They may be of great interest to history… or more possibly to the United States Marshal! Who knows what violence is involved with his battered frame and his bullet holes.

Bradley: So that’s Quirt Evans. He’s quite a man with the gals. He’s closed the eyes of many a man… and opened the eyes of many a woman.

Penelope Worth: Surely you can walk to the barn without that.
Quirt Evans: What?
Penelope Worth: The gun!
Quirt Evans: Oh, well, it balances me. One leg’s longer than the other. You know, the weight.
Penelope Worth: Thee are a liar.

 

[last lines]
Bradley: [the marshal picks up Quirt’s gun] Hey, Quirt might need that!
Territorial Marshal Wistful McClintock: No. Only a man that carries a gun ever needs one.
Bradley: What are you going to do with it?
Territorial Marshal Wistful McClintock: Hang it on a wall in my office – with a new rope.

Randy McCall: Ah, you know, Quirt, I hate to shoot people. Remember I shot a Wattie once up in Montana. I dreamed about it all the next night. And then, of course, there are always witnesses. And then you got to shoot the witnesses.

 

Quirt Evans: He swung a wide loop in his younger days, I think.
Penelope Worth: A wide loop?
Quirt Evans: He wasn’t too careful whose calf he threw his rope at.

 

Quirt Evans: [reads the plaque on the wall] “Each human being has an integrity that can be hurt only by the act of that same human being and not by the act of another human being.”
Quirt Evans: Is that Quaker stuff?
Penelope Worth: Uh huh.
Quirt Evans: You mean nobody can hurt you but yourself?
Penelope Worth: That’s a Friend’s belief.
Quirt Evans: Well, supposin’ someone whacks you over the head with a branding iron? Won’t that hurt?
Penelope Worth: Physically, of course. But in reality it would injure only the person doing the act of force of violence. Only the doer can be hurt by a mean or evil act.
Quirt Evans: Are there very many of you Quakers?
Penelope Worth: Very few.
Quirt Evans: I sort of figured that.

 

Hondo Jeffries: Hey, why don’t we just bust in?
Laredo Stevens: Because bustin’ through doors with Quirt Evans on the other side ain’t my idea of a healthy pastime.

 

[Dr. Mangrum and Mrs. Worth are discussing the recuperating Quirt Evans]
Dr. Mangrum: Once, when I was studying medicine in Europe, I had a friend – an artist. He drew portraits of people and made them resemble the animals they reminded him of. He’d have drawn this man as a coiled cobra.
Mrs. Worth: Ho ho ho, Doctor, you’re analogy is terribly imperfect and your naturalism faulty. Cobras don’t coil.

Allen was 15 when his father, a businessman, was robbed and murdered. He left school to work full-time in several British manufacturing firms to help support the family. He later married Lily L. Allen and became an executive secretary for a large company. At age 38, inspired by the writings of Leo Tolstoy, he retired from employment. Allen — along with his wife and their daughter, Nohra — moved to a small cottage in Ilfracombe, Devon, England to pursue a simple life of contemplation. There he wrote for nine years, producing 19 works. He also edited and published a magazine, “The Light of Reason”.

“The visions you glorify in your mind,
The ideals you enthrone in your heart..
This you will build your life by…
This you will become.”
― James Allen

“Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought-evolved being. For such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought, and as he develops a right understanding, and sees ever more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect, he ceases to fuss, fume, worry, and grieve. He remains poised, steadfast, serene.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“The dreamers are the saviors of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so shall he be”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts
and actions can never produce good results … We understand this law in
the natural world, and work with it; but few understand it in the mental
and moral world—although its operation there is just as simple and undeviating—
and they, therefore, do not cooperate with it.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“A particular train of thought persisted in, be it good or bad, cannot fail to produce its results on the character and circumstances. A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

 Best James Allen Inspirational quotes

“He who would accomplish little need sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much. He who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“Do not dwell upon the sins and mistakes of yesterday so exclusively as to have no energy and mind left for living rightly today, and do not think that the sins of yesterday can prevent you from living purely today.”

“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“Self-control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power. ”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state…Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“A strong man cannot help a weaker unless the weaker is willing to be helped, and even then the weak man must become strong of himself; he must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another. None but himself can alter his condition.”

“A person is limited only by the thoughts that he chooses.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life. And he adapts his mind to that regulating factor, he ceases to accuse others as the cause of his condition, and builds himself up in strong and noble thoughts; ceases to kick against circumstances, but begins to use them as aids to his more rapid progress, and as a means of the hidden powers and possibilities within himself.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“Cherish your visions.
Cherish your ideals.
Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts.
For out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment, of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.”
― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

James Mattis Best Inspiring Quotes

James Norman Mattis (born September 8, 1950) is a retired United States Marine Corps general who was the 26th United States Secretary of Defense, serving in the Cabinet of Donald Trump. Mattis was previously the 11th Commander of United States Central Command during the presidency of Barack Obama and was responsible for American military operations in the Middle East, Northeast Africa, and Central Asia.

“I’m honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress,” he joked. “So I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals and frankly that sounds pretty good to me, and you do have to admit between me and Meryl, at least we’ve had some victories.”

Combining al Qaeda’s significant fighting capabilities with a stronger focus on the administrative capabilities that might permit it to hold ground, the Islamic State copied the latter from Hezbollah’s model. Basically, Islamic State is a combined al Qaeda and Lebanese Hezbollah on steroids, destabilizing the region, dissolving borders/changing the political geography in the mid-east, and hardening political positions that make mid-east peace-building more remote by the day.
James Mattis

When you were the commander of the Central Command, how much time, worry did you have on Iran? Was that your primary concern?
I don’t have worry and stress. I cause worry and stress.

James Mattis Best Inspiring Quotes

The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot. There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim. It’s really a hell of a lot of fun. You’re gonna have a blast out here!

Good afternoon, Marines. Thank you for your attention so late on a Friday. I know the women of Southern California are waiting for you, so I won’t waste your time.

For all the ‘4th Generation of War’ intellectuals running around today saying that the nature of war has fundamentally changed, the tactics are wholly new, etc., I must respectfully say, ‘Not really’: Alexander the Great would not be in the least bit perplexed by the enemy that we face right now in Iraq, and our leaders going into this fight do their troops a disservice by not studying — studying, vice just reading — the men who have gone before us. We have been fighting on this planet for 5,000 years and we should take advantage of their experience. ‘Winging it’ and filling body bags as we sort out what works reminds us of the moral dictates and the cost of incompetence in our profession.

You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually, it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.

I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you a

After the invasion of Iraq -and after sending his tanks and artillery home- Mattis sent this message to the Iraqi leaders in every area his men served in

In this age, I don’t care how tactically or operationally brilliant you are, if you cannot create harmony—even vicious harmony—on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across coalition and national lines, and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete. We have got to have officers who can create harmony across all those lines.

Message sent from Mattis on 31 December 2018, his last day as Secretary of Defense, to all members of the U.S. Department of Defense.[citation needed]

MEMORANDUM FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE
SUBJECT: Farewell Message
On February 1, 1865, President Lincoln sent General Ulysses S. Grant a one-sentence telegram. It read: “Let nothing which is transpiring change, hinder, or delay your military movements, or plans.” Our Department’s leadership, civilian and military, remains in the best possible hands. I am confident that each of you remains undistracted from our sworn mission to support and defend the Constitution while protecting our way of life. Our Department is proven to be at its best when the times are most difficult. So keep the faith in our country and hold fast, alongside our allies, aligned against our foes. It has been my high honor to serve at your side. May God hold you safe in the air, on land, and at sea.

Letter of Resignation

Dear Mr. President,
I have been privileged to serve as our country’s 26th Secretary of Defense which has allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens and our ideals.
I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a sounder budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the Department’s business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence.
One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances. NATO’s 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongside us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further proof.
Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model – gaining veto authority over other nations’ economic, diplomatic, and security decisions – to promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America, and our allies. That is why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense.
My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity, and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances.
Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient time for a successor to be nominated and confirmed as well as to make sure the Department’s interests are properly articulated and protected at upcoming events to include Congressional posture hearings and the NATO Defense Ministerial meeting in February. Further, that a full transition to a new Secretary of Defense occurs well in advance of the transition of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in September in order to ensure stability Within the Department.
I pledge my full effort to a smooth transition that ensures the needs and interests of the 2.15 million Service Members and 732,079 DoD civilians receive undistracted attention of the Department at all times so that they can fulfill their critical, round-the-clock mission to protect the American people.
I very much appreciate this opportunity to serve the nation and our men and women in uniform.
