Okay, so this thread was killed off because we weren't supposed to consider our favorite quotes from literature, poetry, plays, songs, public speeches, TV series, non-fiction works, philosophers, public figures, etc.?

Most of my favorite quotes don't come from movies. Give me Socrates, Lao-Tzu, Nietszche, Sarte. Give me Abraham Lincoln, JFK, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Or how about Mark Twain, George Bernard Shaw, Walt Whitman, e. e. cummings, Kafka, the Beatles, the Who? Maybe something from Star Trek or Blake's 7 or The Office?

I was quoting LOTR long before it became a film series.

But I guess movies are the only quote sources people remember these days.

"There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path."
-Morpheus, The Matrix

This one always stuck with me, made me realize that in life, you have to work hard to succeed, not just expecting success to come running towards you.

Another one of my favorite movie quote:

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”
-Gandalf, from Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

It really makes you realize that life should not be taken for granted, but instead, be lived to the fullest.

As a Star Wars fan, this quote also stuck to me throughout my younger years. Very inspirational, indeed.
