Movie Quote of the Day – Secretariat, 2010 (dir. Randall Wallace)


secretariat

Hollis: I teach economics at Harvard, and I don’t know a way to conjure up six million dollars before you race him again. What makes you think you can?
Penny: I’ll find a way. And if I can’t, I’ll live with it.
Hollis: Why? Why do you need to live with it? Make me, the whole family, live with it for a past that is gone! Our father was a great man, but we can’t bring him back.
Penny: This isn’t about going back. This is about life being ahead of you and you run at it. Because you never know how far you can go unless you run.
Hollis: That’s great. But if you stumble and fall, you don’t just make us fools, you make us beggars. [leaves]
Jack: When your horse people call the house, they don’t ask for Mrs. Tweedy, they ask for Miss Chenery. Is that who you’ve become?
Penny: Jack. . . Miss Chenery and Mrs. Tweedy have always been the same person. I’m wondering how it is that Mr. Tweedy could take sides against me.

Trailer and info after the cut.
