I love quotes, especially those found in movies where you don’t expect them. Today’s post is a list of quotes to inspire and motivate. (And probably make you want to watch a movie or two.) Enjoy.
“Activity suggests a life filled with purpose.” – The Sound of Music; One of my favorite movies. One of my favorite lines. Our world tells us we must always be busy. Busy is what makes us important. This quote reminds me it’s okay to slow down.
“The things you used to own, they now own you.” – Fight Club; Possessions take money, time, and our lives. Think about what you own, and what you really need.
“Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.” – Hitch; Still love this quote. It makes me think how important every moment of our life is. Enjoy each one.
“I figure life’s a gift, and I don’t intend on wasting it.”– Titanic; You only have one life. Live it to the fullest.
“I guess you never know if the last time you see someone is going to be the last time you ever see someone.” – A Thousand Words; If you haven’t seen this movie, you seriously need to. You will think twice about your words, and about life.
“Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?” – What a Girl Wants; Always be who you are.
“Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around, he leaves an awful hole.” – It’s a Wonderful Life; I think we forget how our life impacts so many others. Every smile, every touch, every deed, affects another being.
“When something is too hard, there is always another way.” – Finding Dory; I like the hard. It inspires me to keep going. It inspires me to look beyond the obvious, and use my imagination.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off; I’ve never seen this movie, and don’t intend to. However, I like this quote. Life moves way too fast. Sometimes we just need to slow down and enjoy the moment.
“The past can hurt. You can either run from it, or learn from it.” – The Lion King; No doubt, we all have hurts. We can let them pull us down, or we can use them to build ourselves up. Not saying it’s easy, but sometimes life gives us hurts to teach us. And sometimes, I think it’s the very hurts that make us stronger.
“You can’t live your life for other people.” – The Notebook; It’s true. I’ve tried. You can’t dress how others want you to, have the career others choose, decorate your home, drive a car, or live a life for anyone else. You were created to be unique.
“It’s what you do right now that makes a difference.” – Black Hawk Down; Everything you do matters. I’m learning this more and more. I can waste time, or use my time well. What I do this moment can change my whole future.
Hope this finds you inspired! What movie will you be watching tonight? Any great quotes to share?
