Top 10 Movie Quotes I Adore

Movie Quotes

These are the quotes from movies that really hit me in the heart. For the most part I liked these films and would recommend them.  However, I have not included quotes that I know better from books, or quotes from movies I actively dislike. For example I dislike the film adaptation of Gone With the Wind and so have left out the quote “Tomorrow is another day.” even though it is one of my favourite book quotes. Quotes from Harry Potter have been left out as well, because I really dislike the film series as a whole while I die hard love the books.
