20 Awesome Love-Life Movies Quotes To Learn From

I was born and raised simple-ly as an innocent Cambodian boy. During my childhood, as other kids, I didn't think much about the future; I enjoyed those now-nostalgic childhood things and was quite care-freely childish, about which I wish I had been tapped into a more learning-conducing environment. 

I was sent to school and I have learnt to socialize. A part of me has always seek-ed (sought) out to allocate the meaning of my life. With that, at one time, I started to feel the magical awesomeness of learning and knowing life-related things and notion. The feeling inspires me and urge me to keep on learning things for life. 

Now apart from my academic world, which I feel I haven't achieved much but somehow satisfactory (and a part of me tells me to earn more achievement, which I feel convinced), I have usually tried to seek out to learn more through observing, reading, sharing, watching, etc. 

Among those knowledge-collecting activities, watching movies has always been a part of the routines and has somehow topped the priorities. Dating back briefly, I started the routine because somehow I felt that watching movies could be edutaining, though informally. In a phrase, watching movies sounds usefully good to me. 

To dig deeper, besides exposing myself the the language, I also go for those nice, worth-hearing, thought-provoking quotes that exist in each movies I have watched, mostly of which are Hollywood's.   

Below, I will be sharing with you, my beloved audiences, some 20 meaningful quotes about life and love from various movies I have so far watched, from which you may learn. Let's get yourself a little bit humored. 

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful."  
--A Walk To Remember, 2002

"My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you." 
--Young Noah, The Notebook, 2004

“Love is an ugly, terrible business practiced by fools. It’ll trample your heart and leave you bleeding on the floor. And what does it really get you in the end? Nothing but a few incredible memories that you can’t ever shake. The truth is, there’s gonna be other girls out there. I mean, I hope. But I’m never gonna get another first love. That one is always gonna be her.” 

--Gabe, Little Manhattan, 2005

"When my 60 seconds came around I realized I had everything I ever wanted... but nothing I really needed. and I think what I need is here, and I came all this way to see if you maybe think so too. If you do, well... I don't really have plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O'Callhan and I should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal; I propose we not make plans, i propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. so what do you say, do you wanna not make plans with me?"
--Anna, Leap Year, 2010

"We all make difficult choices in life. The hard thing is to live with them....My tragedy was that I loved words more than I loved the woman who inspired me to write them." 

--The old man, The Words, 2012

"And in the end I think I've learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I've even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life." 

--Tim, About Time, 2013

"It's fine to live in the now. But the best thing about now is that there's another one tomorrow. I'm going to start making them count." 

--Sutter, Spectacular Now, 2013

"Hey. Don't ever let somebody tell you... You can't do something. Not even me. All right? You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period." 
--Christopher Gardner, The Pursuit of Happyness, 2006

"Sometimes, despite your best efforts otherwise, life will give you lemons. When that happens, you've got two choices, friend: you can wear a sour face or make lemonade."
--Burke, Love Happens, 2009

"Look, fellas, all my life I have to consider myself a fortunate man. I don't know, things just went my way. All that changed two years ago. I lost my wife, 15-year-old boy in a car wreck. And when I lost my family, I lost my way. I don't know, I just...Well, I quite living. You've all heard me saying a million times, 'Change how you think, change your life.' Fact is, you've changed the way I think, you've change my life. The first day of training, I had one goal: teach a crew how to be a team. We became much more than that. We became a family, something I thought I'd lost forever. And, win or lose, gentlemen, when you got family, nothing else matters." 
--Coach Blake, The Battle of The Year, 2013 

"Oppenheimer meant well; Pol Pot meant well. It's not about the meaning; it's about the doing. Guys always mean well right before they screw somebody over."
--Bobbi, Some Girl(s), 2013


"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you're hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"
--Rocky Balboa, 2006


"They say we die twice. Once when the breathe leave our body, and once when the last person we know says our name."
--Val, Stand Up Guys, 2012


"Every man carries a badge. Some symbol of his allegiance. His were the scars of a boxer who'd used his fists to climb the social ladder of the mob. A Jew who'd gained the respect of wops through a homicidal lust. He'd sworn an oath of violence. And his master? His own insatiable will to power. He wanted to own this town." 
--Sgt. John O'Mara, Gangster Squads, 2013


"The thing is... It's crazy, but whenever something spectacular happens to me, the first thing I want to do is tell my wife about it. And, after 40 years of marriage, if I can't tell her about something wonderful that happened to me, it sort of stops being wonderful."
--Sam, Last Vegas, 2013

The next one is a bit longer but quite meaningful...


"Jonathan Trager, prominent television producer for ESPN, died last night from complications of losing his soul mate and his fiancee. He was 35 years old. Soft-spoken and obsessive, Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic. But, in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. This hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long reputed soul mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious hours with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Saturday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Dean Kansky, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and executive editor of the New York Times, described Jonathan as a changed man in the last days of his life. "Things were clearer for him," Kansky noted. Ultimately Jonathan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum", what we currently refer to as destiny."
--Dean, Serendipity, 2001 


"You know what this is? This is a Fuck You to me and everyone in this class. I don't want excuses. I know what you're up against. We're all of us up against something. So you better make up your mind, because until you have the balls to look me straight in the eye and tell me this is all you deserve, I am not letting you fail. Even if that means coming to your house every night until you finish the work. I see who you are. Do you understand me? I can see you. And you are not failing."
--Erin Gruwell, Freedom Writer, 2007


"The problem with time, I've learned, whether it's those first two weeks I got to spend with you, or the final two months I got to spend with him, eventually time always runs out. I have no idea where you are out there in the world, John. But I understand that I lost the right to know these things long ago. No matter how many years go by, I know one thing to be as true as ever was - I'll see you soon then."
--Sovannah, Dear John, 2010


"Life is a climb but the view is great."
--Travis Brody, Hannah Montana: The Movie, 2009

"What, that I can get beat up easy and then quit? That's not balance, that's not real kung fu. You said that when life knocks you down, you could choose whether or not to get back up. Well, I'm trying to get back up, and why won't you help me?"
--Dre Parker, The Karate Kid, 2010

To this point, I am thinking of how to end this post, which sees less ideas coming in. Fact is, learning has always been a part of me and I have always been passionate about life, even sometime my ideas on it has been labeled as weird, and, well, that okays for me. 

If you can relate to some of the above quotes, that would sound good. Sadly, they are just quotes, erm, words that might inspire or motivate and after reading them, we all just gonna go back to our respective life. The thing is maybe you can relate, digest and learn something from all the above quotes. 

Have a nice day, dear readers. 

PS. Life is what happen while you're busy making plans. You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
