2007 was a year of great change and uncertainty. Baseball was tarnished, writers struck, the globe got warmer, Iraq surged, China toys stumbled, home prices fell, oil prices soared, Facebook smiled, Vista fizzled, fires raged, Wall Street worried. Within this context of doubt and disquiet, there was some great screenwriting going on. Here are all the best film quotes from 2007.
“When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth.”
“You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions. Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not. ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ 'Has your life brought joy to others?’”
“To see the way that mankind loves, you could search the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful.”
“You are sounding a hell of a lot like my parents. They’re always harping on how they’re giving me a better life than they ever had, then they resent me because I have the nerve to enjoy it.”
“The end comes, no matter what. The only thing that matters is, how do you want to go out, on your feet or on your knees?”
“Does Allah love your kids more than he does mine?”
“I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don't want one.”
"The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences."
“It’s so much easier to believe what you need than what is the truth.”
“Don’t chase what you can’t catch.”
