"I want you to know how much I love you, that you've given a meaning to my life that I had no right to expect, that no one can ever take from me.
No! I love you so much. And I wan t you to promise me something. I don't want you to ever worry about me. And if anything should happen, I'm gonna be okay. And everything's gonna be all right. And I have no regrets. And I want you to feel the same way."

"What's wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can't we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we're gonna fight a disease, let's fight one of the most terrible diseases of all: indifference.
A doctor's mission should be not just to prevent death, but also to improve the quality of life. You treat a disease, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you win, no matter what the outcome. Now here today, this room is full of medical students. Don't let them anesthetize you, numb you out to the miracle of life. Always live in awe of the glorious mechanism of the human body. Let that be the focus of your studies and not a quest for grades.
And start your interviewing skills now. Start talking to strangers. Talk to your friends. Talk to wrong numbers. Talk to everyone… And cultivate friendships with those amazing people standing in the back of the room. Nurses that can teach you… They have been with people everyday. They wait through blood and shit. They have a wealth of knowledge to share with you, and so do the professors you respect. The ones who are not dead from the heart up. Share their compassion. Let that be contagious…."

"On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say? That is was my job? My job?"

You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. I know you hurtin' and worryin', I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I'm tired, boss. Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?"

"Mr. Holland had a profound influence on my life and on a lot of lives I know. But I have a feeling that he considers a great part of his own life misspent. Rumor had it he was always working on this symphony of his. And this was going to make him famous, rich, probably both. But Mr. Holland isn't rich and he isn't famous, at least not outside of our little town. So it might be easy for him to think himself a failure. But he would be wrong, because I think that he's achieved a success far beyond riches and fame. Look around you. There is not a life in this room that you have not touched, and each of us is a better person because of you. We are your symphony Mr. Holland. We are the melodies and the notes of your opus. We are the music of your life."
By: Joanna Gleason as Gertrude Lang in "Mr. Hollands' Opus"
Estas são apenas algumas das grandes citações que se podem encontrar nestes filme. Todos são consideravelmente menosprezados mas não pensem que não valem a pena. Muitos de vós se calhar nem sequer ouviram falar deles. Um ou outro até poderam ser mais velho do que vós. Aproveitem o tempo livre e vejam estes filmes. Aconcelho-os vivamente :)
Mas claro, os gostos não são todos iguais. Se conhecem algum filme que valha acham que todos deveriam ver, deixem-no aqui com uma citação dele. Talvez no proximo post eu o incluia ^^. Prometo tentar ve-lo claro está
