Best Pep Talks In Movies To Conquer Anything
The Gridiron Gang
Coach Sean Porter (Dwayne Johnson)- 2006 sports drama film– Pregame speech
Now it’s time to see who has the heart. Now is the time to prove to yourselves and to everyone out there that even though you are locked up, you are somebody. Are you ready to accept the Mustang challenge?
President Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman)- 1996 epic sci-fi disaster movie- Pre-battle speech
We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive!
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen)- 2003 epic high-fantasy film- Riding back from the Black Gate, before the big battle speech
I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come, when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of Fellowship, but it is not this day! This day we fight!
Friday Night Lights
Coach Gary Gaines (Billy Bob Thornton)- 2004 sports drama movie- Pre-game speech
To me, being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It’s about you and your relationship with yourself. It’s about being able to look your friends in the eye, and know that you didn’t let them down because you told them the truth.
William Wallace (Mel Gibson)- 1995 historical drama epic movie- Freedom speech
Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you’ll live — at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!
Doctor Hunter “Patch” Adams (Robin Williams)- 1998 semi-biographical comedy-drama film- Speech in front of the medical board
A doctor’s mission should be not just to prevent death but also to improve the quality of life. That’s why, you treat a disease, you win you lose, you treat a person, I guarantee you win no matter what the outcome.
