The Movie Quote That Most Americans Would Use To Sum Up Their Lives!
A new survey asked Americans if there was one movie quote that could sum up their life philosophy, what would it be. And the winning quote was from… “Forrest Gump”. And no, it’s not listing different kinds of shrimp recipes.
26% of Americans said they can best sum up their lives with the quote, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.”
A quote from “The Wizard of Oz” came in second, with 21%. That quote, of course, is, “There’s no place like home.”
8% of people went for the quote “Carpe diem,” which means “Seize the day,” from “Dead Poets Society”.
Two different quotes got 7% of the vote… “Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin'” from “The Shawshank Redemption”, and “Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night” from “All About Eve”.
Two quotes got 6% of the vote… “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn” from “Gone With the Wind”, and “Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth” from “The Pride of the Yankees”.
Two quotes got 4% of the vote… “May the Force be with you” from “Star Wars”, and “What we have here is a failure to communicate” from “Cool Hand Luke”.
“Show me the money” from “Jerry Maguire” got 3%. And finally, 2% of the vote went to both “There’s no crying in baseball” from “A League of Their Own” and “Houston, we have a problem” from “Apollo 13″.
