I’ve watched quite a number of movies in my short lifetime and some of them tended to leave an impression. With each movie I’ve made the effort to remember quotes that were motivational throughout the movie.

Visual media like a movie helps you remember things longer hence motivational quotes stick longer in your mind. Some of my favorite movie quotes have come from those based on motivational true stories.

These include movies like Woodlawn, Hacksaw Ridge and Chariots of Fire. Others not based on true stories have also been very inspiring. In this post I share movie quotes you may also find motivational.
