4 movie quotes that literature enthusiasts will love


“We become the books that we read.”

“Movies are the mirror to the society.”

Literature has inspired numerous motion pictures around the world. The relation between the two is symbiotic as movies give the readers a gateway to see their beloved characters saying their favourite lines  . From the likes of Dead Poets Society to The Great Gatsby, here are the 5 movie quotes that literature enthusiasts will love :

  1. “Of all the things one says and does, I look back on what never was. Then think of all that life could be, if I could capture what I see.”


2 “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
Dead Poets Society,1989

3. “It’s like I’m reading a book… and it’s a book I deeply love. But I’m reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you… and the words of our story… but it’s in this endless space between the words that I’m finding myself now. It’s a place that’s not of the physical world. It’s where everything else is that I didn’t even know existed. I love you so much. But this is where I am now. And this is who I am now. And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can’t live in your book any more.”



4.“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly.”

-The Great Gatsby, 2013

The Great Gatsby, 2013
