They Said It

Legends die hard. And same holds for what they say. Funny, witty, sappy, emotional lines from movies I adore.

Why do I fall in love with any woman I see, who shows me the least bit of attention?>
— JOEL BARISH, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

You don't know about real loss; because that only occurs when you love something more than you love yourself.
— SEAN MAGUIRE, Good Will Hunting

We don't read or write poetry because it is cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race, and the human race is filled with passion. Medicine, Law, Business, Engineering-these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love-these are what we stay alive for.
— JOHN KEATING, Dead Poets Society

If we all go for the blonde and block each other, not a single one of us is going to get her. So then we go for her friends, but they will all give us the cold shoulder because no on likes to be second choice. But what if none of us goes for the blonde? We won't get in each other's way and we won't insult the other girls. It's the only way to win. It's the only way we all get laid.
— JOHN NASH, A Beautiful Mind

There's nothing better than a great romance to ruin a perfectly good friendship.
— OLIVER MARTIN, A Lot Like Love

I've made the most important discovery of my life. It's only in the mysterious equation of love that any logical reasons can be found. I'm only here tonight because of you. You are the only reason I are all my reasons.
— JOHN NASH, A Beautiful Mind

I guess when you're young, you just believe there'll be many people with whom you'll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.
— CELINE, Before Sunset

There's these breeds of monkeys, right, and all they do is have sex, all the time, you know? And they turn out to be the least violent, the most peaceful, the most happy, you know? So maybe fooling around isn't so bad.
— Jesse, Before Sunrise

Honestly, if you're not willing to sound stupid you don't deserve to be in love.
— EMILY FRIEHL, A Lot Like Love

You know, this necklace makes me think of this totally random memory of my mother. I was a little kid, and I was crying for one reason or another. And she was cradling me, rocking me back and forth, and I can just remember the silver balls rolling around. And there was like snot running down my nose. And she offered me her sleeve and told me to blow my nose into it. And I can remember, even as a little kid, thinking to myself, this is love... this is love.

Yeah. The funny thing is - on the outside, I was an honest man, straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook.
— ANDY DUFRESNE, The Shawshank Redemption

We're not laughing at you - we're laughing near you.
— JOHN KEATING, Dead Poets Society

I'd ask you about love, you'd probably quote me a sonnet. But you've never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell.
— SEAN MAGUIRE, Good Will Hunting

Now we all have a great need for acceptance, but you must trust that your beliefs are unique, your own, even though others may think them odd or unpopular, even though the herd may go, that's baaaaad. Robert Frost said, "Two roads diverged in the wood and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
