I'm melting ! Melting ! Oh, what a world ! What a world !
The Wicked Witch Of The West, The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
Until we take how we see ourselves (and how we see others) into account, we will be unable to understand how others see and feel about themselves and their world. Unaware, we will project our intentions on their behavior and call ourselves objective.
Never put off to tomorrow what you can do today.

Henry David Thoreau
In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.

I love him because he's the kind of guy who gets drunk on a glass of buttermilk, and I love the way he blushes right up over his ears. I love him because he doesn't know how to kiss, the jerk !
Sugarpuss O'Shea, Ball Of Fire (1941)
Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves.
Great effort from great motives is the best definition of a happy life.
William Ellery Channing
Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don't have any problems, you don't get any seeds.
Norman Vincent Peale
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everyone.
Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast.
Norman Vincent Peale
Man's love is of man's life a part, it is a woman's whole existence. In her first passion, a woman loves her lover, in all the others all she loves is love.
Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.

If I had more time, I'd write a shorter speech.
Never say die.
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
I've looked around enough to know that you're the one I want to go through time with.
Respect the past in the full measure of its desserts, but do not make the mistake of confusing it with the present nor seek in it the ideals of the future.
Happiness itself does not stay -- only moments of happiness do.
Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore, make your own future.

Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction
Every shot you don't take is a guaranteed miss.
There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
The way to find out about your happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you really are happy -- not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy ? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what I call 'following your bliss'. If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are -- if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.
Two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it, begin it now.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight ?
The Joker, Batman (1989)
Death is something not only mysterious but a great act of purgation. That which continues in a repetitive pattern is degeneration. The pattern may vary according to country, according to climate, according to circumstance, but it is a pattern. Moving in any pattern brings about a continuity and that continuity is part of the degenerating process of man. When there is an ending of continuity, something new can take place. One can understand it instantly if one has understood the whole movement of thought, of fear, hate, love - then one can grasp the significance, instantly, of what death is.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous, you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
It is not length of life, but depth of life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
Mark Victor Hansen
Friendship doubles joy and halves grief.
For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice. No paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.
If thou must love me, let it be for nought, except for love's sake only. Do not say, I love her for her smile, her look, her way of speaking gently, for a trick of thought that falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought a sense of pleasant ease on such a day. For these things in themselves, beloved, may be changed, or change for thee, and love so wrought, may be unwrought so.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.
Count Dracula, Dracula (1931)
The vedanta recognizes no sin, it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.
The mind is a lousy master but a wonderful servant.
Would you like to come in ?
Aurora Greenway, Garrett Breedlove (1983)
Tough times never last but tough people do.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
We are all born for love, it is the principle existence and it's only end.
An Indian's dress of deer skins, which is wet a hundred times upon his back, dries soft; and his lodge also, which stands in the rains, and even through the severity of winter, is taken down as soft and as clean as when it was first put up.
I think we deserve a break.
Kathie Moffat, Jeff Bailey (1947)
Winning isn't everything , it's the only thing.
I never did anything worth doing entirely by accident... . Almost none of my inventions came about totally by accident. They were achieved by having trained myself to endure and tolerate hard work.
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost, that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
Henry David Thoreau
Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.
Rick Blaine, Casablanca (1942)
Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment. The response to the challenges of life -- purpose -- is the healing balm that enables each of us to face up to adversity and strife.
Hi, Curly, kill anyone today ?
Mitch Robbins, Curly (1991)
The quality of a man's life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavor.
All condemnation of others really condemns ourselves. Adjust the microcosm which is in your power to do and the macrocosm will adjust itself for you.
Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade ?
They're called boobs, Ed.
Erin Brockovich, Erin Brockovich (2000)
You can not step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
I make wine at home. I make it out of raisins so that it will be aged automatically.
Whenever I think of the past it just brings back so many memories.
There's a name for you ladies, but it isn't used in high society -- outside of a kennel.
Crystal Allen, The Women (1939)
You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose site of the shore.
You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.
You cannot live without dying. You cannot live if you do not die psychologically every minute. This is not an intellectual paradox. To live completely, wholly, every day as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is.
Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us.
The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it open.
The only abnormality is the incapacity to love.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon- instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it
Dennis P. Kimbro
The point is that you can't be too greedy.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
I couldn't wait for success, so I went ahead without it.
Romance has been elegantly defined as the offspring of fiction and love.
Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far. quotes
W. Clement Stone
But because I am mad, I hate you. Because I am mad, I have betrayed you. And because I'm mad, I'm rejoicing in my heart, without a shred of pity, without a shred of regret, watching you go with glory in my heart !
Paula, Gaslight (1940)
A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway.
People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to.
Only those who do nothing at all make no mistakes but that would be a mistake.
It is in the small decisions you and I make every day that create our destiny.
