Acreditando que "All of life's riddles are answered in the movies" como dito por Steve Martin em "Grand Canyon", esta lista do IMDb revisita algumas grandes lições dos últimos 25 anos.


"What we do know is that, as the chemical window closed, another awakening took place; that the human spirit is more powerful than any drug, and that is what needs to be nourished with work, play, friendship, family.

I think the secret old Mr. Death is holding is that it's better for some of us over on the other side. I know it can't be any worse for me. Maybe that's the place for your Maddie.

I mean, you'd think that was pretty magical, right?" Dad (Ethan Hawke) on being asked if magic exists by his son Mason (Ellar Coltrane), Boyhood (2014)

"All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing. And then the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face, like some rhino hunters I know or Belmonte, who is truly brave...

Ernest Hemingway (Corey Stoll), Midnight in Paris (2011)
