Wealthy Gorilla has covered a lot of motivational quotes, but I’ve never covered any motivational speeches from movies. Well, now I have finally found some of my favorite speeches from famous movies.
Every person has their own reasons for watching movies. Some people go to movies and see friends or family, others go to make new friends. However, if you watch a movie everyday, you’ll definitely get very bored. You will feel lonely and tired.
We also listed the 5 movies you should probably not watch, next time you get an hour or two to yourself.
Top 5 Best Motivational Speeches From Movies
1. The Shawshank Redemption – Red
Redding: I know this is 40 years; I only been here 10 years but I’m trying to be rehabilitated as best as I can.
He didn’t know what it meant. He didn’t know what rehabilitated meant.
Parole Hearing Man: … and participate in your re-entry into society.
You can just go back to whatever cave you crawled out of. You’re all alone, and I’ve got all the time in the world. What could you possibly know that I haven’t known for 30 years? You want to know that? I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong.
Well, I’m thinking about it.
I know I’m not the person I was, and I try not to blame you for that. That’s what’s so stupid about this. Every night I lie in bed and think about those nights, and I just want to talk to him, to hear what he has to say, and tell him I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.
I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can’t. That kid’s long gone and this old man is all that’s left. I got to live with that.
I just want to get it out of my system so I can stop thinking about it. That’s the only way to stop thinking about it.
This is what happens when you go to a school where they’re teaching more than you’re learning. People like you should never be in charge.
2. Wolf of Wall Street – Jordan Belfort
I really want to do what’s best for Stratton. I believe in what we’ve done here and the future is incredibly bright. But as we enter 2019, it’s clear that the time is right for me to pass the baton to new leadership. I have no doubts about my successor- they are the best in the business. I’m confident they will continue to build on the momentum we have with an incredibly talented sales force and the same relentless focus I had on creating the best talent and technology for my clients. And the key to that is you, the partners of Stratton.
I appreciate your saying that and all of your great work the last 30 years. You have been an incredible leader. You have had an incredible impact. You have been a great ambassador for this company and for everybody here.
Yes, and the fact he’s going to move in with you, I can’t believe he’s going to leave his wife and two children behind.
The other day, an analyst from a major retail brokerage firm described Stratton as, “a firm on a mission from God.” Well, that’s just what they said about a firm we used to own… back before we fired those guys and bought a fucking stake in the goddamn thing. They are a bunch of goddamn cocksuckers!
I am here for you and you can count on me to do anything and everything I can for you. My job is to give you the best education and make it a little easier for you to get ahead. My job is to make you a success!
A firm we believe in, a firm we value, a firm that’s going to do the right thing for everyone involved, a firm that people can be proud of, a firm that cares.
Whether your family has a history of stealing from tourists or has been stealing from tourists or would steal from tourists if they could!
Well, everybody knows Kimmie, but maybe not everyone knows that he’s also named Kimmi.
Kimmie is the one who is most responsible for the fact that you have your career today, for the fact that you have clients and you love being home in the evening with your family. Kimmie is a real woman with a family and a career.
A woman who dresses in Armani and spends her winters at the Hamptons and her summers in the Bahamas!
I gave her the advance.
And then after I hired her, I told her, Kimmie, when you’re on your feet with a job, and a decent income, come back to me and let’s chat. But she never did. I tried to help her, but she never went back to me or did anything ever again.
Kimmie, you’ve been generous and you’ve written me this check for $25,000. And I’m happy to say that I intend to pay you back.
Because I loved, I believed in you, and I want to hear your story.
Kimmie, love you Jordan.
This deal is going to make life hard on me, but I really am just so overwhelmed, overwhelmed by the blessing of the Lord. I just don’t know what to say and I’m just overwhelmed.
You cannot be serious! I told you to move out of here! What the f***! I have nowhere else to put my stuff! You’ve already moved the f*** outta here! I’m not leaving!
But seriously, I couldn’t ask for more from my fans.
3. Any Given Sunday – Al Pacino
And I’m sure the guys on the other team will try to do just that. They’ll think that if there’s one thing our team can’t do is crack, and if there’s one thing they can do is crack, well, they can do it.
We are in hell now. We can go to hell if we want to or we can fight our way back out. We can fight with our bodies or we can fight with our minds. It doesn’t matter what we do.
I’ve been a part of the game a lot longer than you have and I can tell you right now that I’ve never played better football in a decade than I’m playing right now. I’m the best I’ve ever been and I’m going to keep playing better football. And I think the other players are feeling the same way. You know that.
There’s a lot of money to be made in football, so it’s not surprising that the owners and the commissioner are willing to go to any lengths to try and maximize their profits. But as the players have found out, you really can’t go to any lengths.
We have a whole world of opportunity before us.
The first thing in the game is not the introduction, it’s the tutorial.
On this team, we will beat you at your own game; we will take what you give us and we will make the most of it with relentless spirit.
When we add all the inches of those who we will not allow to enter our club, it will make The difference between winning and losing. Between livin’ and dyin’!
But it’s not a team that can beat the Americans in a best-of-seven series.
And, if we don’t heal as a team, we will die as individuals.
I just played a football game. My son was on the other team.
It’s a process of seeing that we are all connected.
“I’m gonna find you a new job, but I’ve already got one lined up”.
4. Rocky Balboa – Rocky
The other day, the last time I looked, at the beginning of the year, the other day, I was sitting here, and you looked great.
You took it and you took it and you took it and then one day when you realized you had it and it was not gonna go away you said, “This is mine, and I will take care of it.” You were my hero. You were a huge hero to us.
Then after you get a taste of your own medicine, you try and prove them wrong but the cycle repeats. You get hurt and they don’t care. It’s all just a big joke.
I felt like I was looking for someone to blame and when things got hard, you started blaming your shadow.
This is not a message of hate and anger, it’s a message of love and hope. There is no other choice. I choose love and hope every single day. If you are up to it, I will help you celebrate your life, I will embrace you in this life and celebrate you in the next.
You are not an island. Others can hurt you. You can hurt others. So don’t let them make you feel like a victim. If something happens to you, respond with a positive attitude. Be grateful for what you have. Learn from this experience and move on.
And that’s what’s so great about the internet. It’s not like in real life where you have to go in a room and talk to someone. It’s not even like when I was a teenager where I would go to the video store and watch people. You’re just sitting at your computer and people are just right there in front of you.
I’d really like it if people from my community could read what I’m saying and get to that point where they can actually just be themselves and let their feelings out on their own.
My dad told me that I wasn’t getting enough love growing up. He said it was my fault that he had to go to work so early and leave me by myself. He said that I didn’t know how to love myself. My dad said that love wasn’t something that was given. Love was something that I had to earn. I didn’t believe him. But, it was true. I didn’t believe in myself. I didn’t even believe in myself.
5. The Great Dictator – Charlie Chaplin
The people who want to rule this world don’t want to be bothered with the opinions of the masses. They’re trying to keep all the people down and they use the media to get people to think it’s not their responsibility to govern themselves.
So we want to live happy together and work out our problems and help each other out. We don’t want to live one by our own selfishness. We want to live for each other not from each other. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
In these paraphrases, there seem to be two issues at play, namely, the difference between our desire to live for others and our desire to live by “others’ misery.” Our paraphrase attempts to bring these two aspects together.
Even though we live in a world filled with many problems, there is still hope.
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for people to get rid of their freedom, governments are instituted to protect their property and the fruits of their labor.
We are like a river that carries the silt of our own making, so that the riverbed is ever more choked, and the riverbed becomes more and more shallow and its waters muddy and its waters less clear for other things to live in.
All of us need a flying boat – all of us need a radio. These inventions speak for goodness in men. They bring us closer together. They’re universal brotherhood.
The government makes people starve to death. They steal from the poor to give to the rich. They tell you what you can say and what you cannot say. They bomb non-violent peasants. They use you for their military adventures.
I say to you today, my friends, that so long as we are given faith that can move mountains, that can split the atom, that can reach to the moon and back, in that same breath, that so long as we are given faith, we will win. That’s all I want to say today.
We, the soldiers, are taught to believe in nothing. It is not to believe in nothing that I tell you so. I tell you that we have a great God who does not play dice with the universe.
I tell you that mankind has already gained the power to free itself from the bondage of this world.
I tell you that mankind is now capable – has now reached the point of no return.
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine-minded men with machine-loving hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You do not hate!
No! The only one thing that we can do is die together. Don’t fight for slavery. Fight for liberty. If you die, we all die! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In that chapter, it is written: “The Kingdom of God is within you!” – not one person nor a group of persons, but in all persons! In you the people have the power – the power to create machines, the power to create happiness, the power to create a better world.
The world is not worth living in. We all come from the same father. Let us all unite with the will to change our lives and our society. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men and youth a future, a security and a life worth living. Let us all unite with the will to change our society, a better society, a better world.
In this age, the ones with the most power are people who get others to do their bidding, and they do it by exploiting the people’s natural fear and ignorance of things they can’t understand. They want us to have no control over our lives, so they can have complete control over us. The ones on top are just parasites.
Let us fight for a new world – a decent world – a free world – a world in which all of us live, and all of us look forward with hope to a time when the world
is a decent place to live, and our children can live without hate – without fear –
to do away with all barriers – all greed, all hate, all intolerance….
Let us all fight for a world filled with reason, a world where science and progress will lead to the happiness of all our people. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite.
I’m back on the field after a couple of months of rehab.
