Top 10+1 Movie Quotes to Positively Lift Your Spirit and Inspire YOU

Are you a movie buff like me? Do you love inspiring movies? If your answer is ‘yes’ then this post will inspire you BIG time!!!

I love the Movies. They are a great escape from reality at times and are a great source of relaxation and entertainment.

I enjoy all sorts of movies, but get especially touched by the picturesque artsy stories. I like movies that offer something deeper than just entertainment….I love a movie with a story that can inspire me and move me to be More, to Do More. There are some movies that offer something deeper. Today I want to share with you some inspiring movie quotes that offer such wisdom that will definitely positively lift your spirit and inspire you.

So here goes…in no particular order, my…

Top 10+1 Movie Quotes to Positively Lift Your Spirit and Inspire YOU

1) “Every man dies, but not every man really lives.” – Mel Gibson as William Wallace in Braveheart.

This quote is as applicable today, if not more, than it was in the 13th century. Death is inevitable, but it is life that scares the living hell out of most of us. It is easy to fall into the trap of being like an automaton. William Wallace helps remind us that life is a great adventure and no matter how far we have gone we can hop right back on the train and LIVE again.

2) “You get what you settle for.”Susan Sarandon as Louise Sawyer in Thelma and Louise.

Lately there has been a lot of attention on books about the universal law of abundance and attraction. This quote from Thelma and Louise sums it up quite nicely. Where we put our intention and energy is what we attract into our life. If we put our intention on what we don’t want we will get more of it.

3) “I can’t tell you any sure way to happiness. I only know that you’ve got to go out and find it for yourselves.” – Gene Lockhart as Dr. Seldon in Carousel.

When you go to the self-help section of any bookstore you will find ten million books about obtaining happiness. If you just type Self Help on Google you will be given millions of blogs and websites on how to be happy. However, no one can tell you what will make you happy or how to become happier. You have to discover your own joy and let it come through you.

4) “When you forgive, you love, and when you love, God’s light shines on you.” Hal Holbrook as Ron Franz in Into the Wild.

Forgiveness is acceptance, acceptance is love and love is the light. It doesn’t get any more direct than this quote. Our world is one that constantly holds a grievance against something or someone. A very unhealthy way of living for sure. If we can learn to forgive we will have the grace of god shining through us and on us. Love indeed is light.

5) “There are only four questions of value in life, Don Octavio. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same – only love.”Johnny Depp as Don Juan in Don Juan DeMarco.

Oh wow..now this is one of my favorite movie quotes of all time. Don Juan asks four of the fundamental questions of life and the answers are all the same: LOVE. Love is where we come from, who we are and where we are going. This quote also helps remind me of how small so many of our problems are. If you are ever bothered by the small stuff ask yourself what is sacred? Ask yourself of what is Divinity made of? If you can remember the answer is love you will help put an end to your own suffering.

6) “There is only one freedom of any importance, freedom of the mind.”Judi Dench as Iris Murdoch in Iris.

Life can be complicated at times. If you are a prisoner of your thoughts and dysfunctional feelings then you have no freedom. The ability to free your mind of all its unhealthy junk is the only way out. I keep this quote on my fridge, on my desk and in my wallet as a constant reminder of what freedom really is.

7) “You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something? Go get it. Period.” – Will Smith as Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness. 

My hubby and I love this move. It stands for so much and reminds us of what truly can be achieved once we put our mind to it. This quote is another reminder of the universal law of abundance. How many people have dreams and visions that sing to them, but are too afraid to do anything about it. Many who turn away from their dream turn negative and try to keep others down with them. Our dreams are precious messages from the heavens and we must protect them at all costs. We must also try to have compassion for those who are negative for they are in pain and we must make an effort to stir them positively.

8) “There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”Laurence Fishburne in The Matrix as Morpheus.

This quote could very well be straight out of the Tao Te Ching. Morpheus reminds us that we can never really know it, we can only be it. What keeps many of us from going after our dream is inertia. We must take that first step and start walking the path of the larger journey. Our big dreams await.

9) “Winners forget they’re in a race, they just love to run.”Joe Pesci as Simon Wilder in With Honors.

Now this is an amazing quote. It almost seems like a novel concept, doesn’t it? People who are truly successful live with passion. Those who succeed don’t spend a lot of time fretting about the results. If you love what you do success will come as naturally as a sun rise.

10) “Do or do not. There is no try.” Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back.

Yoda is so the way 🙂 All of the quotes in this article are accurate pointers to the truth. However none hit the mark like this one. The concept of trying is something the mind invents to keep us locked in an unhealthy prison. We either do it or we don’t. It doesn’t even matter what results we achieve. Life is in the doing. I keep this quote on my wall so I can constantly be reminded of its truth.

  1. These are fantastic movie quotes!

    To go along with the first one, one of my favorite scenes is the final climax scene in Blade Runner, where Rutger Hauer’s character says to Harrison Ford’s character, “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears…in…rain. Time to die.”

    This is someone who made his mark on existence. Even though he was a replicant, he lived. He really lived.

  2. I can’t remember any movie quotes off the top of my head, but my two favorite here are from Morpheus and Judi Dench. Love the way you chose the most profound ones.

  3. What fun! An innovative way to look at the world. And yay, Yoda!

  4. Hello Zeenat Mam, as per your Question no. 11. My fvrt movies are Maine Pyar Kiya, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, I like Romantic Love Stories… its very cool…

  5. Love this here are mine “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.”
    —Christian, Moulin Rouge
    “People call those imperfections, but no, that’s the good stuff.”
    —Sean Maguire, Good Will Hunting
    Do, or do not. There is no “try”.
    – Yoda (from The Empire Strikes Back) xxoo

  6. Hi Zeenat!

    There are so many great quotes that come to mind… I believe number 4 was once posted by me on Positive Provocations? I have the DVD but have not watched the movie in some time. As I recall the two were on top of a hill at dusk?

    This quote is pretty wonderful:

    “Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself.”

    ~ Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez,
    Love in the Time of Cholera

    Thanks Sister!

  7. Great quotes, Zeenat! Very inspiring and insightful. A memorable movie quote that comes to mind is from Shawshank Redemption: Get busy living or get busy dying. That’s also powerful, I think.

  8. What a fun way to start the day! Thanks, Zeenat! Yoda’s wisdom is truly timeless!

  9. There is always quotes that resonate in the soul. Don’t laugh. Mine is from The Big Lebowski. “Yeah, Well,You Know…That’s Just, Like Your Opinion,Man.” To me, translated from stoner-speak, it means we can disagree without anger or unkind words that we might later regret. That quote was a life lesson to me.

  10. Awesome quotes, Zeenat. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  11. I have many quotes and many movies I love, but the one that comes to mind right now is “I see you” from Avatar. After watching this movie I learned to see more than what I see in a person… I learned to see their souls. I learned to see with my heart.

  12. What a fabulous post! I love the quotes and movie suggestions. I can’t think of a specific quote but one of my favorite movies is Hector’s Search for Happiness! It is so uplifting and leaves me in tears every time I watch it!

  13. Hi Zeenat, once again you’ve truly inspired with wisdom, love, and one of my favorite forms of entertainment, movies!!! My all time favorite movie quote is from Titanic “To making it count” That’s when the poor humble Jack is inspiring a group of rich elite with his words. Since indeed they did not know their time would be cut short on earth. I tell myself those same words very often. Even if my life is not great sometimes I have to make that moment count as a great memory in time. Thank you for your greatness and profound influence in my life. Hugs!!!

  14. Number 10 is my favourite!!

  15. Great inspiration Zeenat. The difference between knowing the path and walking the path speaks such truth!

  16. I love them all! I recently posted 50 quotes from cartoon characters we love. 🙂
