From movie lovers to businessmen alike The Wolf of Wall Street is arguably one of the most iconic films of the 21st century.
Here’s a list of a few of the best lines from the movie:
- I want you to deal with Your problems by becoming rich.
- You can watch me, mock me, try to block me but you cannot stop me.
- Sell me this pen.
- Without action, the best intentions in the world are nothing more than that: intentions.
- My name is Jordan Belfort. I’m a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.
- Risk is what keeps us young.
- If anyone here thinks I’m superficial or materialistic, go get a job at f****** McDonald’s, ‘cause that’s where you f****** belong!
- Let me give you a little legal advice, shut the f*** up!
- Fall in love with the person who enjoys your madness, not an idiot who forces you to be normal.
