Sea Biscuit

SeaBiscuit is one of my all-time favourite movies and I have put in some excellent conversations from the movie. If you like them, you should watch the movie!

Why are you fixing the horse?
Every horse is good for something. You know, you dont throw a whole life away just because he banged up a little.

Narrator: Seabiscuit was a small horse, barely 15 hands. He was hurting too. There was a limp in his walk, a wheezing in his breath. Smith did not pay attention to that. He was looking at the horse in the eye.

What exactly did you like in that horse? He's got spirit. Hell, he is so beat up he is hard to tell what he's like. I think they got him so screwed up making him run in a circle that he is forgotten what he was born to do.

"Though he be little, he is fierce." - Shakespeare

All the time in the world, boy.
That's it Pops.
Nice lead.
Just like that, boy.
Just like that.
what do you think, boy?
You ready to go?
You and me. Let's go boy. Let's go. Ha! Ha!

Well, I just think this horse has a lot of heart.
He may have been down, but he wasn't out.
He may have lost a few, but he didn't let it get to him.

By the way, he does not know he's little. He thinks he is the biggest horse out there. See, sometimes, when a little guy, he doesn't know he's a little guy, he can do great big things. See, this is not the finish line. The future is the finish line. And Biscuit is the horse to get us there!

A good quote from Mark Twain:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

There is also this line which Toby Maguire says (I don't know whether it was said by Ceaser or by Hadrian) "You know what Hadrian said while rebuilding Rome, "One brick at a time, my dear citizens, One brick at a time!!"

Thats another great line i love after "You don't throw a whole life away, just because its banged up a little bit.. :) :)
