Favorite Lines from Movies

"I have long feared that my sins would come back to haunt me, and the cost of them is more than I can bear" -- Mel Gibson (The Patriot)

"Sons are put on this earth to trouble their fathers" -- Paul Newman to Tom Hanks (The Road to Perdition)

"I don't wanna be a Cathlick. I wanna be a Nethidist like mommy." "And why is that, honey?" "So I can pray whatever I want" -- Sloane Momsen to Mel Gibson (We Were Soldiers)

"I'm not a doctor. I never went to medical school. I'm not a lawyer, or a Harvard graduate, or a Lutheran." "Frank? Frank? You're not a Lutheran!?" -- Leonardo DiCaprio with Amy Adams' response (Catch Me if You Can)

"Two years ago you were a passionate churchman. Now you're a passionate Lutheran. We must just pray that when your head's finished turning, your face is to the front again." -- Paul Scofield (A Man for All Seasons)

"Don't mind her. She's French-Canadian. Some days she's Canadian. Can be quite pleasant. Today she's obviously French." -- Robert Taylor (Vertical Limit)

The quotation from A Man for All Seasons is one of my all-time favorites!

Probably not a movie that is up your alley, but one of my favorites...

"We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact." -- Brad Pitt in Fight Club

Nice looking blog you got here. Keep up the good work.
