"Do, or do not. There is no “try”."
"Do, or do not. There is no “try”."
"Love cannot be found where it doesn’t exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does."
"Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it."
"Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?"
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
"You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love."
(Did you really think we weren't going to include one from The Notebook....?)
"We are who we choose to be."
Unless you choose to be a horse. You can't be a horse no matter how hard you try. Probably.
"Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want."
RIP Heath Ledger.
"I don’t regret the things I’ve done, but those I did not do."
Does anybody feel like perhaps he's borrowed that sentiment from somewhere...?
"It is not our abilities that show what we truly are… it is our choices."
Dumbeldore with a shot of truth.
“Run, Forrest, run!”
I know this might not sound all that inspirational but when you think about it, it certainly can be. I mean, he did run, didn't he? He kept running and running and accomplished some amazing things based on these three simple words.
“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”
It's probably one of the most famous movie quotes of all time. There's usually a reason when a quote becomes so famous and that reason is usually because it works.
"Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period."
“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”
"You cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours."
There is perhaps not a better quote by which to live your life. So many of us forget that if happiness is what we're after (and let's be honest, if it isn't then what is the point?), you won't find it without being yourself.
"After a while, you learn to ignore the names people call you and just trust who you are."
This guy would know...
"If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs. And maybe your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And you’ll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine."
"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."
If we can't turn to The Ring for wisdom then where can we turn?!
"It’s what you do right now that makes a difference."
"Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss."
I guess living your life backwards might offer a unique perspective, right?
"Great men are not born great, they grow great."
"Me, I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it’s not some place you can look for because it’s not where you go. It’s how you feel for a moment in your life when you’re a part of something and if you find that moment, it lasts forever."
There was a time when Leo had no beard and had not won an Oscar....
"Only if you find peace within yourself will you find true connection with others."
The loviest love story to ever love (until the equally praised sequels hit the screen).
"I know what I have to do now, I’ve got to keep breathing because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?"
Dude talks to a volleyball ...but we still take his advice!
"To find something, anything, a great truth or a lost pair of glasses, you must first believe there will be some advantage in finding it."
