Movies have a special way of connecting with us, teaching us and even the power to change us. Be it moving us to tears or giving us the courage and inspiration to keep going, some of the best motivational quotes are stored in 35mm tape. So to encourage in whatever you do and wherever you are in life, take a look at these quotes.
"Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it" - Rafiki, from The Lion King.
Rafiki explaining that your past experiences are valuable lessons and you should learn from them.
"I don't regret the things I've done, but those I did not do" - Lucas, from Empire Records.

"Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss" - Benjamin Button, from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Don't take missing an opportunity as a bad thing, you never know what life is trying to teach you.
"It's what you do right now that makes a difference" - Jeff Struecker, from Black Hawk Down.
Similar to our quote from Empire Records, the little things you do today could make a difference in future. Never hesitate. Just do it.
"You'll have bad times, but it'll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren't paying attention to" - Sean Maguire, from Good Will Hunting. A beautiful sentiment from Robin Williams, summing up a life lesson one should always remember. It's not always clear sailing.
"Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Makes your lives extraordinary" - John Keating, from Dead Poets Society.

Or, if you're thinking of a quote from outside the box, why not reuse the words of Summer Finn, from her yearbook quote in 500 Days of Summer. Zooey Deschanel's character took a line from a Belle and Sebastian song to talk about what she wants out of life: "Colour my world with the chaos of trouble". In plain text, this means 'fill my world with trouble'. It essentially boils down to the fact that one should not lead a plain, boring life.
