Gary Cooper Movie Quotes

Here are a few of our favorite movie quotes from Gary Cooper.

Alvin C. York (Sergeant York):
"I ain't proud of what I've done over there. What we done in France is something we had to do. Some fellows done it ain't a-comin' back. So, the way I figure things like that ain't for buyin' and sellin' - I reckon I'll have to refuse them."

Professor Bertram Potts (Ball of Fire):
"No mistake. I shall regret the absence of your keen mind. Unfortunately it is inseparable from an extremely disturbing body."

Longfellow Deeds (Mr. Deeds Goes to Town):
"All famous people aren't big people."

Lou Gehrig (Pride of the Yankees):
"People all say that I've had a bad break, but today - today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth."

Lt. Frederick Henry (A Farewell to Arms):
"What does this war mean to me anymore? What does anything mean but finding her?"

Robert Jordon (For Whom the Bell Tolls):
"A man fights for what he believes in, Fernando."

John Doe (Meet John Doe):
"A free people can beat the world at anything, from war to tiddlywinks, if we all pull in the same direction."
