That's a great idea. 

Have a room for a few more?
James Gordon: "I know you're a billionaire, but I can buy you a sandwich". 
Frank: "Why are you wearing that stupid human costume?"
Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor: "The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves."
Roy Batty: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."
Monica Belucci: "We are like the dreamer who dreams, and then lives inside the dream."

I can see there's not much room for more but here's some anyway:

Clarence Oddbody: Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?

Hogarth Hughes: You are what you choose to be. You don't have to be a gun.

Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

Yoda: No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Han Solo: Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

William Somerset: Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.

Terence Fletcher: I told you the story of how Charlie Parker became Charlie Parker, right?
Andrew Neiman: Jo Jones threw a cymbal at his head.
Terence Fletcher: Exactly. Parker's a young kid, pretty good on the sax. Gets up to play at a cutting session, and he fucks it up. And Jones nearly decapitates him for it. And he's laughed off-stage. Cries himself to sleep that night, but the next morning, what does he do? He practices. And he practices and he practices with one goal in mind, never to be laughed at again. And a year later, he goes back to the Reno and he steps up on that stage, and plays the best motherfucking solo the world has ever heard. So imagine if Jones had just said, "Well, that's okay, Charlie. That was all right. Good job." And then Charlie thinks to himself, "Well, shit, I did do a pretty good job." End of story. No Bird. That, to me, is an absolute tragedy. But that's just what the world wants now. People wonder why jazz is dying.

Christopher McCandless: Happiness is only real when shared.

Ferris Bueller: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Atticus Finch: If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

Abdullah Alothman,

Please correct the spelling of realize in #2.

-Morpheus

"Sooner or later you're gonna realise, just like I did... There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path""

To:
"Sooner or later you're gonna realize, just like I did... There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path""

- - -

Please change the comma to a period in #33.

-Captain Jack Sparrow

Hi Abdullah, I really like this poll a lot. May I suggest a few edits? They're below in bold.

#9:  "They say great beasts once roamed this world, as big as mountains, yet all that's left of them is bone and amber, time undoes even the mightiest of creatures."  (an apostrophe in that's, an "e" in undoes, and a period at the end."

There are several quotes without periods at the end of sentences, like the above quote, so adding periods would improve the poll quite a bit and make the quotes easier to read. 'Great quotes, by the way. : )

Here's another suggest edit:

#3: "The world needs bad men. We keep the other bad men from the door." (A period instead of a comma and a period at the end of the second sentence.)
