Exceptional Movie Quotes

I am tired of writing about politics. Therefore I decided to shift focus on something different. In our today's hectic society, people to entertainment to escape reality. One of the most popular form of entertainment is movies. I have included a list of movie quotes that I find interesting. We all live colorful lives and due to nature of our unpredictable lives, these quotes might make a lot of sense. Sometimes these quotes are the best description of our political arena both in terms of domestic politics and global affairs. Here are my favorite ones:

We inhabit a world of intersecting secrecies, living and dying at the places where these secrecies meet. This is what we accept. Hmmm?-Munich
