We recently asked movie lovers from our BuzzFeed Community for a movie quote that they live their life by and they DID NOT disappoint. Here are just a few of the best entries:
1."We really never lose our demons. We only learn to rise above them."
2."A queen is never late...everyone else is simply early."
3."All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
4."I figure life's a gift, and I don't intend on wasting it."
5."People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people."
6."I don't want to survive, I want to live."
7."Worrying is like a rocking chair: It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere."
8."You are who you choose to be."
9.“We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And 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.
10."Life is pain, Princess. Anyone who tells you different is selling something."
11.“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
12."Keep moving forward."
13.“Have courage and be kind.”
14."I don't like it. I don't agree with it. But I accept it."
15."Do it now or forever wish you had!"
16."The key to a happy life is to accept that you are never actually in control."
17.“Get busy living, or get busy dying.”
18."In your place, if there is pain, nurse it. And if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out. Don’t be brutal with it. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster, that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to make yourself feel nothing so as not to feel anything ― what a waste."
19.“If you were happy everyday of your life, you wouldn’t be a human being, you would be a gameshow host.”
20."If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
21.“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you.”
22."You must always have faith in yourself."
23."If you're good at something, never do it for free."
24."Be excellent to each other."
