The Green Mile is not an upbeat story. Based on the book by Stephen King
it portrays society at its worst levels of prejudice and its best levels of human vulnerability and compassion.
8 Mile is not a fairy tale. It juxtaposes the physical boundaries and psychological limits of a young man, dreaming for more than he’s got, torn between his talent and his circumstances.
4 Minute Mile is not a buddy comedy. It’s about the power of mentors, the power of believing in something before you can see the result, believing because someone else can see it in you.
These movie quotes show different levels of internal and external conflict.
They show that even the direr of circumstances can present an empowering perspective if you look closely and think creatively.
Your green mile is fertile with the true limits of humanity.
“Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not.”
“Sometimes, the embers are better than the campfire. It’s strange, but it’s true.”
“The world turns, that’s all. You can hold on and turn with it, or stand up to protest and be spun right off.”
Your 8 Mile is the dividing line between what you’re told you are and who you know you could be.
“Do you ever wonder at what point you just got to say fuck it? Like when you gotta stop living up here, and start living down here?”
“If something needs to happen with this shit, it needs to happen now.”
“Look, if you had one chance, one opportunity, to seize everything you ever wanted? One moment. Would you capture it? or just let it slip?”
Your 4 Minute Mile will take the hard work that others aren’t willing to endure.
“Uh, you run ten of ’em, yeah, but you can’t run with a temper. You gotta be in control or you beat yourself.”
“And when you’re about ready to pass out and your legs can’t move and your lungs can’t breathe and your eyes can’t see, you’ll know that it’s just the beginning, and it’s so beautiful.”
