20 Best Inspirational Movie Quotes of All Time

Always willing to steal an anecdote or two, we’re almost always digging for words that could make us look both cool and intelligent. What better than movies to look for these; well, books. But, would you have the time or patience or (coughs) skill to go through the tedious process?

Screenplay and dialogue writing are the skeleton of any movie, some are early drafts and commercial projects that don’t quite spear through your heart, but certain writers work ages to get just the right words and personality for his/her characters. Among all that cinema has given us, these quotes have stood the test of time in inspiring and motivating us into gearing up to achieve something extraordinary.
