motivational movie quotes

The designers and depression thread made me think again of one of my favourite movie
quotes. For me it was a gem rather unlikely “buried” in the Men in Black I comedy:

The first time I saw this scene on the silver screen before me it just struck me what was wrong
with my junior designer life: I did the work I always wanted to do, but lost the joy in it
because of the tension I built up in myself.

I’d love to see this thread evolve into a collection of likewise quaint findings. Any old
movie or tv snipets will do. Very expectable quotes out of the bible or the like do not

have a nice saturday anyone !


“Patience grasshopper”. Kung Fu

My dad used to say this all the time when I was a kid. I still say this to myself when I get frustrated or things aren’t going the way I expected them to. Sometimes you just need to take a breath collect your thoughts and revisit the task.
