Favorite Movie Quotes

Any college canteen, coffee shop or a simple hangout with friends has one very noticeable characteristic—the use of movie quotes to prove or bolster one’s particular point. In many countries, it has almost become a pastime to discuss these quotes and analyze how profound their meaning and impact is. Indeed, movie quotes are one thing that makes a movie memorable long after all the glitz and glamour has died down. The more famous of the quotes have already made their way into lore, bestowing the actors uttering them with the status of being demigods. Quite often, the actors are remembered more for their quotes on screen than for their beauty or fame. Movie quotes are now a part of pop culture and have emerged as an effective link between different generations. For instance, with a particular quote from a movie, a teenage can connect with a fifty year old, and vice versa. Sometimes, a favorite movie quote even becomes a significant part of a person’s life. There are intense lines from movies that best describe a difficult period or a happy memory or the first love. And with these quotes, these emotions become entrenched in the memory. Though there is no denying to the fact that each one has his/her own favorite movie quotes, there are some quotes that are on the favorite list of most of the people.
