TIME magazine has chosen YOU as their annual Person of the Year. Each of us controls the emerging Information Age. We control the way our own lives unfold. We control the planet - one person at a time. We are the director and star of our own lives. I'm not sure what took TIME so long to come to this understanding. Movies have been telling us this for quite a while. Here are five movie quotes about TIME's Person of the Year - YOU.
"A man's self is his spirit. It is the unsacrificed self that we must respect in man above all."
The Fountainhead (1949) - Gail Wynand (Raymond Massey)
"It's hard for many people to believe that there are extraordinary things inside themselves, as well as others. I hope you can keep an open mind."
Unbreakable (2000) - Elijah Price (Samuel Jackson)
"The human spirit is more powerful than any drug and that is what needs to be nourished with work, play, friendship and family. These are the things that matter."
Awakenings (1990) - Dr. Malcolm Sayer (Robin Williams)
"The party's where you are."
The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) - Georgia Lorrison (Lana Turner)
"I am looking for a 'dare to be great' situation."
