This is a fairly comprehensive list of my favorite movies.  Maybe you'll find some new ones to try!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."

Chariots of Fire
"I believe God made me for a purpose, but He also made me fast.  And when I run I feel His pleasure."

Sherlock Holmes
"Permission to enter the armory?"

Alice in Wonderland
"Goodbye, sweet hat."

The Blind Side
"Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage based on a dumb idea or mistake, but you're not supposed to question adults, or your coach or your teacher, because they make the rules. Maybe they know best, but maybe they don't. It all depends on who you are, where you come from. Didn't at least one of the six hundred guys think about giving up, and joining with the other side? I mean, valley of death that's pretty salty stuff. That's why courage it's tricky. Should you always do what others tell you to do? Sometimes you might not even know why you're doing something. I mean any fool can have courage. But honor, that's the real reason for you either do something or you don't. It's who you are and maybe who you want to be. If you die trying for something important, then you have both honor and courage, and that's pretty good. I think that's what the writer was saying, that you should hope for courage and try for honor. And maybe even pray that the people telling you what to do have some, too."

Wives and Daughters
"I'm sorry I said anything about it now. I'll try to find a more agreeable piece of news."
"Old Marjorie at the lodge is dead."

North and South
"I wish I could tell you how lonely I am. How cold and harsh it is here. Everywhere there is conflict and unkindness. I think God has forsaken this place. I believe I have seen hell and it's white, it's snow-white."
Pride and Prejudice
"Barely tolerable, I dare say. But not handsome enough to tempt me. You'd better return to your partner and enjoy her smiles. You're wasting your time with me."
Bright Star
"There is a holiness to the heart's affections."
Phantom of the Opera
"In his eyes, all the sadness of the world..."
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
"If the Witch knew the true meaning of sacrifice, she might have interpreted the deep magic differently. That when a willing victim who has committed no treachery, is killed in a traitor's stead, the stone table will crack, and even death itself would turn backwards."
Prince Caspian
"They're so still."

"The trees? What did you expect?"
"They used to dance."

Batman Begins
"It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me."

The Nightmare Before Christmas
"Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange?"

The Corpse Bride
"I want some questions! Now!"
"Answers... I think you mean answers."
 "Thank you, yes, answers. I need answers."

Some day it'll just end. Everyone will go home, get on with their lives. Tall grass will cover the battlefields. And all the pilots we've lost won't mean a damn thing.

Amazing Grace
"You found God, sir?"
"I think that He found me."

Around the World in Eighty Days
"Mr. Fogg, why must you be British?"

I Am David
"My friend Johannes used to say, 'Trust no one."
"Oh, life wouldn't be worth living if you did that, David."

Edward Scissorhands
"You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it."

Top Hat
"You mean to sit there and tell me that that girl slapped your face in front of all those people for nothing?"

"Well, what would you have done? Sold tickets?"
The Gay Divorcee
"Guy, you're not pining for that girl!"
"Pining? Men don't pine. Girls pine. Men just... suffer."

It's a Wonderful Life
"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"

Arsenic and Old Lace
"No, no. I'm not a Brewster. I'm the son of a sea-cook! Ha! Ha! Chaaaaarrrge!"

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
"Everything in this room is eatable - even I'm eatable! But that is called "cannibalism," my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies."

Sense and Sensibility
"My heart is, and always will be, yours."

It Happened One Night
"Oh, er, do you mind if I ask you a question, frankly? Do you love my daughter?"
"Any guy that'd fall in love with your daughter ought to have his head examined."
"Now that's an evasion!"

The Sound of Music
"Maria, these walls were not meant to shut out problems. You have to face them. You have to live the life you were born to live."

Molokai: The Story of Father Damien

Mother Teresa
"Everything we do is a drop of water compared to the infinity of God. But if we didn't do it, that drop of water would be missing for all eternity."
