[from trailer]

Socrates: This moment is the only thing that matters.

Socrates: There is no starting or stopping - only doing.

Socrates: Death isn't sad. The sad thing is: most people don't live at all.

Socrates: Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what's good for you. They don't want you to find your own answers, they want you to believe theirs.

Dan Millman: Let me guess, and you want me to believe yours.

Socrates: No, I want you to stop gathering information from the outside and start gathering it from the inside.

Socrates: People are not theirs thoughts, they think they are, and it brings them all kinds of sadness.

Dan Millman: You're out of your mind!

Socrates: And it's taken me a lifetime of practice.

Socrates: I think you should continue your training as a gymnast. A warrior does not give up what he loves, Dan. He finds the love in what he does.

Dan Millman: Look at me! I have a metal rod in my leg.

Socrates: A warrior is not about perfection, or victory, or invulnerability. He's about absolute vulnerability. That's the only true courage.

Dan Millman: What kind of training you think I could do? I just had an accident!

Socrates: The accident is your training. Life is choice. You can choose to be a victim or anything else you'd like to be.

Dan Millman: Just ignore what happened to me?

Socrates: A warrior acts, only a fool reacts.

Dan Millman: What if I can't do it?

Socrates: That's the future. Throw it out.

Dan Millman: Well, how would we start?

Socrates: There is no starting or stopping, only doing.

Socrates: There's no greater purpose than service to others.

Dan Millman: I took for granted what I could do. I was sloppy with my life; I'm scared but I feel like I got rid of all the old stuff and it was the right thing to do.

Socrates: A warrior is not about perfection or victory or invulnerability. He's about absolute vulnerability.

Socrates: It's the journey, not the destination.

Socrates: Do you know what's the difference between me and you?

Socrates: You practice gymnastics, I practice everything!

Socrates: [to Dan] You'll be amazed at what you can do and how well you can do it.

Dan Millman: Why me? Out of all the people you could have taught, why did you choose me?

Socrates: Are you done flattering yourself?

[pause]

Socrates: You chose me.

Dan Millman: The ones who are hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most.

Dan Millman: There are no ordinary moments.

Joy: [to Dan, touching his chest] I don't think your leg was the only thing that got broken.

Socrates: There is only the journey

Doctor Hayden: With some hard work I'm sure you'll be able to walk again.

Dan Millman: I don't know what to do.
