The 15 Best Pieces Of Life Advice From Movies


Good advice can come from anywhere, and though most people turn to books and experts, movies also have their fair share of wisdom to impart to their audience. Movies are filled with advice about love, careers, money and family. And like people, you wouldn’t turn to certain movies for certain types of advice: you wouldn’t watch “The Godfather” hoping for nonviolent negotiating tips, you wouldn’t watch the “Indiana Jones” trilogy trying to glean love advice and you wouldn’t watch “The Wolf of Wall Street” to find your moral center. There are plenty of movies to choose from depending on the subject you need to research, and good advice can even come from average or bad movies. Here are fifteen different quotes, all from different movies, that shed some light on life, the time we are given and how we should spend it:

“Try not. Do- or do not. There is no try.” Yoda, “Star Wars: Episode V-The Empire Strikes Back”

“Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous.” -President Snow, “The Hunger Games”

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” -Gandalf, “Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring”

“The only true currency in this bankrupt world… is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool.” Lester Bangs, “Almost Famous”

“If you’re good at something, never do it for free.” The Joker, “The Dark Knight”
