I have lots but I will try to get my list down to 3. So here goes! 

Quote #1:

- Capt. Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl)

Quote #2:

"It ain't braggin' if y'really done it" 

- Lee Adler (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)

:w00t: @CamelKnight :lol:

 

This comes to mind as I watched the movie "Darkest Hour" last week. It's a really good movie & those who've yet to watch - should:wink:

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”

For some reason this quote resonated with me, long after the movie ended...

The most necessary quality for any person to have is imagination. It makes people able to put themselves in other people's places.  It makes them kind and sympathetic and understanding..

~ Jean Webster, Daddy Long Legs

because I am still reading this Daddy Long Legs novel, I will continue to write my fav quotes from the novel :blush:

 

"He is just himself, and I miss him, and miss him, and miss him. The whole world seems empty and aching. I hate the moonlight because it's beautiful and he isn't here to see it with me.."  <~~~ this is funny but sweet and cute hiehiehie

 

"Perhaps when two people are exactly in accord, and always happy when together and lonely when apart, they ought not to let anything in the world stand between them." Judy Abbot <~~~ this story written in 1912 and people in 1912 can be very simple and humble yet romantic. I wish I live in 1912. hahahaha
