Peaceful Warrior (2006)
Socrates: Where are you?
Dan Millman: Here.
Socrates: What time is it?
Dan Millman: Now.
Socrates: What are you?
Dan Millman: This moment.
Dan Millman: The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination
Dan Millman: Life has just three rules?
Socrates: And you already know them...
Dan Millman: Paradox, humour, and change.
Dan Millman: Life is a mystery. Don't waste time trying to figure it out.
Dan Millman: Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure.
Dan Millman: Know that nothing stays the same.
Socrates: Everything has a purpose, even this, and it's up to you to find it.
Socrates: A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does
Socrates: I call myself a Peaceful Warrior... because the battles we fight are on the inside
Socrates: Those who are the hardest to love, need it the most
Socrates: Sometimes you have to lose your mind before you come to your senses.
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: This moment is the only thing that matters.
Socrates: People are not theirs thoughts, they think they are, and it brings them all kinds of sadness.
Socrates: There's no greater purpose than service to others.
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.
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: A warrior is not about perfection or victory or invulnerability. He's about absolute vulnerability.
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: 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?
Socrates: You chose me.
Dan Millman: The ones who are hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most.
Joy: [to Dan, touching his chest] I don't think your leg was the only thing that got broken.
Doctor Hayden: With some hard work I'm sure you'll be able to walk again.
Coach Garrick: [to Dan] Doctors tell me you'll never compete again.
