#LongandShortReviews #bloggingchallenge 8.19.2020

This is always one of my favorite writing prompts – FAVORITE BOOK OR MOVIE QUOTES ( and why!)

I’m gonna do both. Books, first


“Want to finish, give my report. Is my face messed up? I hate when that happens. Not like I’m pretty or anything, but–”

“You are the most beautiful woman ever born,” Roarke said from the doorway.

“You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”

Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell

“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen

“I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, I can’t do anything but think about him. At night I dream of him, all day I wait to see him, and when I do see him my heart turns over and I think I will faint with desire.”

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory

“Tis better to have loved and lost, Than never to have loved at all.”

 In Memoriam A.H.H. by Alfred Lord Tennyson

And now the movies

“After all… I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” Anna Scott, Notting Hill (1999)



“You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” Rhett Butler, Gone With the Wind (1939)

“You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love… I love… I love you.” Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice (2005)

“Do, or do not. There is no “try”.

– Yoda

“Just because someone stumbles and loses their path, doesn’t mean they’re lost forever.”

–Professor X

“Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.”

–Alan Turing

“When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.”

–Roy McAvoy

“Get off my plane!” Air Force One, the President

Okay, those are mine. Let’s see what some of the other authors in this challenge have to say: L&SR

    You’re gonna need a bigger boat.
    “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.”
    “We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”

  5. Those are good ones. The Prof X (Who doesn’t love James McAvoy in that role? Yum), reminded me of one from Rocketman: Elton John: Bernie. I never told you how much I need you.
    Bernie Taupin: No, no, no. I love you, man. Always have, always will. You write songs that millions of people love, and that’s what’s important. You just need to remember who you are and be okay with it.
    Good one!!!

    I have a somewhat complicated relationship with that Yoda quote (and I love the way they referenced it in season 1 of Star Wars: Rebels) but man I love the Professor X and the Alan Turing quotes.

    My list is here.

  8. Love these! The Gone with the Wind one is one of my favourites – there’s so much great dialogue in that book.


  9. Marianne

    I spent the first two-thirds of your post thinking, “She’s such a romantic.” … and then you hit me with Air Force One…

  10. It’s not from a romance, but our family loves Oliver asking. “Please, sir, may I have some more?”
    I love the quote from Jerry McGuire, “You had me at hello.”
    There are so many great literary and movie quotes we couldn’t possible list them all.

    Mr. Darcy is, hands down, the best!!!!!! Those are my favorites, too! I also like the quote from Tin Cup.
