15 Inspirational Quotes From Movies

Aug 11, 2014

Movies are fun to relate to and they can offer a lot of inspiration. Quotes don’t have to be lengthy to make a point and they are more meaningful when you remember the context a character said it in. Some of the best quotes are from movies from years ago that continue to stick with us, like The Lion King and Finding Nemo!

Here are 15 inspirational quotes from movies:

“We are who we choose to be.” – Green Goblin from Spider-Man

You can become whomever you want, but it can be hard to step out on your own away from family members and friends who think they know best.

“After a while, you learn to ignore the names people call you and just trust who you are.” – Shrek

You will always find someone who just wants to bring you down, but you can choose whether or not to listen.

“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.” – Rafiki from The Lion King

We all make mistakes and there are aspects of our pasts that we had no control over, so choose to learn from it and move forward!

“You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.” – The Notebook

Life suddenly becomes more meaningful when you are doing what you were created for.

“Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?” – What a Girl Wants

We all need to feel accepted and it can be scary to stand out, but you can’t run from who God needs you to be.

“Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want.” – Heath Ledger from 10 Things I Hate About You

Jealousy can cause people to say and act in ways that are harsh and mean. Don’t worry about what others think and be grateful for what you have.

“Our fate lies within us. You only have to be brave enough to see it.” – Princess Merida from Brave

God knows our fate and will give us the ability to become the brave individuals we need to be in any situation.

“I never look back, darling, it distracts from the now.” – Edna “E” Mode from The Incredibles

Why look back and dwell on the past when you can focus on the present and look toward the future?

“It is not our abilities that show what we truly are… it is our choices.” – Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

God has blessed you with many talents, but it’s up to you to decide how to use them.

“The only think predictable about life is its unpredictability.” – Remy from Ratatouille

This is so, so, so true!

“Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.” – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

It doesn’t help to dwell on opportunities you gave up, but to take advantage of those that you do have each day.

“I know what I have to do now, I’ve got to keep breathing because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?” – Cast Away

There is always a reason to have hope even after the worst of days.

"The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all." – The Emperor in Mulan

Look at the blessing of how God is shaping you when all you seem to experience is heartache and failure.

“Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.” – Chris Gardner from The Pursuit of Happyness

In short, never give up!

“When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming.” – Dory from Finding Nemo

Even taking baby steps or slowly shuffling your feet means you are moving forward.

Life can turn us upside-down at times, but there is always a reason to look up and thank God for our blessings. Turn on one of these movies (or your favorite inspirational film) and send us your favorite inspirational quotes!

I am a Christian writer and editor that lives in northern Michigan and thoroughly enjoy music, movies, TV shows, books and other entertainment with a Christian focus. My favorite song is "Oceans" by Hillsong United because it reminds me that has big plans for me and everyone else who puts their trust in Him. There are many movies that have impacted my life, but a few include God's Not Dead, The Shunning and Letters to God. I also write for and love connecting with readers, so please don't hesitate to contact me! When I'm not writing I enjoy watching movies and laughing with my busy toddler and husband.
