101 Best Movie Quotes From Famous Hollywood Films

best classic movie quotes

Quotes

A film becomes a classic when it sticks with us even years after their original release, and some of the best movie quotes become so ingrained in society that people use them colloquially — sometimes without even realizing where they're from!

Like many people, I'm a big movie lover. I love going to the movies and seeing them on the big screen or just watching movies alone in my room. Movies are such a fun escape from reality. You get to dive into someone else's world for about two hours and they almost always have a happy ending (almost). 

Good movies can even change your perspective on life or inspire you. There's really a movie out there for every type of person and any type of mood you're in.
