Proverbs II

My posts titled Proverbs are a collection of quotes that have impacted me in some way and that I like to share with friends when I get a chance. In some cases they are profound, in some others they are just funny  and not so edifying.

Here are some manly quotes from movies, I selected a few that I like:

“I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubblegum.” —Roddy Piper, They Live (1988)
“This life’s hard, man, but it’s harder if you’re stupid.” —Steven Keats, The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)
“You’re a disease. And I’m the cure.” —Sylvester Stallone, Cobra (1986)
