One can learn so much about life from the struggle of the father and the sweetness with which he deals with the role of a parent.

Here are some of the memorable quotes from the film, which can have a profound impact on our lives…

  • “You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period” :  These immortal words spoken by the character of Will Smith, makes us want to achieve our dreams and act on it rather than dwell on the beauty of achieving it. Certainly, if you follow this quote, you may as well change the shape of your life.
  • The important thing about that freedom train, is it’s got to climb mountains. We ALL have to climb mountains, you know. Mountains that go way up high, and mountains that go deep and low. Yes, we know what those mountains are here at Glide. We sing about them : This quote inspires us to travel and set aside a higher goal for us in life. Life is about achieving those dreams and climbing high up in the mountains towards the pursuits of life which make us happy.
  • “Hey dad, you wanna hear something funny? There was a man who was drowning, and a boat came, and the man on the boat said “Do you need help?” and the man said “God will save me”. Then another boat came and he tried to help him, but he said “God will save me”, then he drowned and went to Heaven. Then the man told God, “God, why didn’t you save me?” and God said “I sent you two boats, you dummy!” – Another wonderful antidote from the film, which makes us restore our faith in the almighty and it certainly makes us uplift with the wisdom to have faith where there’s always a way out from the problems that we are dealing with in life. Interestingly, this dialogue is spoken by the kid in the film.
  • “Hey. Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me. All right?” – Spoken by Will Smith himself, the dialogue renews the lost spirit of a dreamer and it instills the virtue of optimism in a person who is in trouble.
