Here are a few of our favorite movie quotes from Kevin Spacey.
Ron Klain (Recount): "How hard is it to punch a paper ballot? "
Lex Luthor (Superman Returns): "Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don't share their powers with mankind."
Bobby Darin (Beyond the Sea): "Memories are like moonbeams, we do with them what we will."
David Gale (The Life of David Gale): "We spend our whole life trying to stop death. Eating, inventing, loving, praying, fighting, killing. But what do we really know about death? Just that nobody comes back. Then there comes a point - a moment - in life when your mind outlives its desires, its obsessions, when your habits survive your dreams, and when your losses... Maybe death is a gift."
Prot (K-PAX): "Let me tell you something, Mark. You humans, most of you, subscribe to this policy of an eye for an eye, a life for a life, which is known throughout the universe for its... stupidity."
Buddy Ackerman (Swimming with Sharks): "This is the only way that you can hope to survive. Because life... is not a movie. Everyone lies. Good guys lose. And love... does not conquer all."
Verbal Kint (The Usual Suspects): "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."
Mickey (Hurlyburly): "That's crazy. Sarcastic is mean, it's heavy -- it's funny, sure, but it's mean. I do both, but this was flip."
Lloyd Chasseur (The Ref): "You know what I'm going to get you next Christmas, Mom? A big wooden cross, so that every time you feel unappreciated for your sacrifices, you can climb on up and nail yourself to it."
John Doe (Seven): "Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you'll notice you've got their strict attention."
Jack Vincennes (L.A. Confidential): "Oh, great. You get the girl, I get the coroner."
Chris Sabian (The Negotiator): "You hurt one of them, you burn up any currency you have with me. They're all I care about. Getting you out of here alive... a distant second."
