    "Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love... true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in." Hub McCann - Secondhand Lions (played by Robert Duvall)

    "I'm Hub McCann. I've fought in two World Wars and countless smaller ones on three continents. I led thousands of men into battle with everything from horses and swords to artillery and tanks. I've seen the headwaters of the Nile, and tribes of natives no white man had ever seen before. I've won and lost a dozen fortunes, KILLED MANY MEN and loved only one woman with a passion a FLEA like you could never begin to understand. That's who I am. NOW, GO HOME, BOY!" Hub McCann - Secondhand Lions

    I could post the entire script of "The Princess Bride" but here's a few of my favorites, sans the wisdom...

    "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father prepare to die."

    Westley: [as he is unsuccessfully fighting Fezzik] Look, are you just fiddling around with me or what?
    Fezzik: I just want you to feel you're doing well. I hate for people to die embarrassed.

    "The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life." Katsumoto, The Last Samurai
