Famous Movie Quotes We’ve Often Repeated


It’s interesting to think about how much of an affect or influence the “big screen” has been in our lives from childhood well into our adult years — and not just on action scenes — but we’ve listened intently to conversations between characters in movies and find ourselves consciously or subconsciously picking up on quotes, sometimes serious, often amusing, but the lines stick in our heads long after we leave the theater or turn off the television. They’ve basically become part of our “pop culture” terminology that we often use, when the situation is just right. Scan the list and see just how many of these you remember — and then how many of them you’ve repeated to your family, friends, work associates, or people you come across in your day-to-day activities.
