Inspirational Words – Great Inspirational Movies
I love watching great inspirational movies. For 90 minutes or more I am transported to another place and time and invited into the very personal lives of all sorts of wonderful and endearing characters, some good, and some not so good. For that period of time, I completely forget about what is going on in my world and become totally enraptured in theirs. I allow these complete strangers in the big black box or on the silver screen to delight me, enchant me, captivate me, entrance me, bewitch me, beguile me, thrill me, scare me and excite me. I give them permission to touch my heart and yank at my soul. Their hopes become my hopes, their dreams my dreams. I feel their pain, endure their sadness, suffer their transgressions and rejoice in their victories. I laugh with them and cry with them. And if I am really paying attention, they will often say something to me that will shake me up and rock my world!
All from the comfort of a state of the art movie theatre or my own couch. What could be any better than that?
And so on that note… I am currently working on the upcoming 20 Year Anniversary Issue of my PRINT magazine, People and Possibilities, and I am planning to include a list of 20 or More Top Inspirational Movies. For example, some of my favorites are “Dead Poet’s Society” , “84 Charing Cross Road” and “Joe Versus the Volcano”.
Over the next month I am going to be watching several movies to see if they deserve to be included in this list and I was wondering if you have any favorites of your own that you would like to recommend. I am looking for movies that inspire and touch a chord in one’s heart. Really, really feel good kind of movies. The kind of movie that you think about for days after you have watched it. I am hoping to discover some great gems that many of us didn’t even know existed. And I am also planning on including some really great movie quotes from several of these movies as well. Here is an example of some of these enduring movie quotes for today’s Inspirational Words.
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. ”

“Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’. ”

“The best love is the kind that weakens the soul, that makes us reach for more, that plants fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give to you forever. ”
- The Notebook
“I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw. I’m scared of what I did, of who I am. And most of all… I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life, the way I feel when I’m with you.”
- “Baby” Dirty Dancing
