For me, I like to watch movies for many reasons, but one is because of some great movie quotes. Once you hear something incredible in a movie, it becomes part of you and you never forget it. It’s recalled years later and makes the movie stand still in time.
So what I have done for you is complied my favorite movie quotes, and for this post is specially from romantic comedies movies, and my explanation for why they are all so wonderful.
1. Movie : “Rumor Has It”
“I’m not going to stand here and tell you I can’t live without you, because I can…
I just don’t want to.” – Sarah to Jeff
I feel this is one of the most raw and romantic quotes there is. Sarah is telling Jeff that she loves him so much that she doesn’t want anyone else, not then not ever. It is love in its simplest form in my opinion. Even though it was wrote into a script, it still has meaning to everyday people like you and me. Not everyone can experience that in their lifetime. But, hopefully I will, someday.. 🙂
2. Movie : “Sleepless in Seattle”
“It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together. And, I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I’d ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like… magic..”
Again, the romance and ideals behind this touch one’s heart, awaking the desires that we want to have that “one true love” and remind us that there is hope out there for us to find that which we do desire and deserve. A one, deep, “true” love, and that neither time nor distance could keep the lovers apart.
3. Movie : “Runaway Bride”
“Look, I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you’re the only one for me…”
We all want to have that, the happily-ever-after that we feel we deserve. But the truth behind storybook romances is laid out in this quote. It gives us pause to think about how we will go through life – not only the joys, but the heartaches that will surely happen as well. And it is best kept in mind there will be hard times as we consider who we desire to spend the rest of our life with.
4. Movie : “The Prestige”
“I want… I want you to be honest with me. No tricks, no lies, no secrets.”
This movie quote touches my heart because this describes exactly what I want in a relationship. I want complete honesty. I don’t understand how you can love someone and not be honest with him or her, in fact I think it’s impossible..
5. Movie : “The Notebook”
“I am no one special, just a common man with common thoughts. I’ve led a common life, there are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I’ve succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived. I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul and for me… that has always been enough.”
It’s so pure and so honest, no manipulation, not even a little…!!! This is how I want to be remembered, not as a common man of course, but for who I am. I too am no one special, I am just a common man living a common life. How do you want to be remembered after you leave this life?
6. Movie : “When Harry Met Sally”
“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts… I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes.. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible…”
When Harry finds himself needing to explain why he loves Sally, he comes out with the most honest explanation of love I’ve ever heard. The little things are what makes love stick, not the big events, not the big mannerisms, but the things that linger after those big things fade. To her, his decision maybe seems irrational, the actions of a lonely man. But, Irrationality happens sometimes in love, especially when you feel you’re in danger of losing that love. This line makes me feel all warm inside no matter how many times I’ve seen it.
I know We don’t live in a movie; this is the real world. But, for various reasons, each of these quotes have spoken volumes to me over the years, given me pause to think as I go through my own daily routines as well as daydreams. Contemplating the depth and value of love within my life..
