It's okay, we all have our down days. There's nothing like turning to movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind after going through a bad breakup, watching The Other Guys when you need a good laugh, or popping in The Notebook to believe that love isn't dead. We can turn to movies for any emotional place we may be in at the moment, so why not turn to them when we just need a little extra encouragement. So here is 25 movie quotes just to let you know that better days are ahead.

9.) The Pursuit of Happyness

8.) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

It is not our abilities that show what we truly are... it is our choices.

2.) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

1.) Rocky

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees, and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.
