Movie Wisdom – Jodie Foster Edition

15 Jan

In honor of last night’s wackiness at the Golden Globes, here are some words to live by from the movies of Jodie Foster.Jodie Foster

From Tom Sawyer

Heck, girls aint no fun. Always gigglin’ or weepin’.

If’n I was God/ well just for spite/ I wouldn’t set the sun at night/ till everyone was treated right/ by everyone else they see.

From Taxi Driver

You’re only as healthy as you feel.

No longer will the wrong roads be taken.

From Candleshoe

There is treasure among books.

The paths of glory lead but to the grave.

Don’t lose your garlic.

From Silence of the Lambs

All good things to those who wait.

From Sommersby

Use the fertilizer in the fields.

From Maverick

There is no more deeply satisfying religious experience… than cheatin’ on a cheater.

From Contact

The world is what we make of it.

From Panic Room

Just stay calm.

From Inside Man

There’s a vast difference between being stuck in a tiny cell and being in prison.

Fact is, all lies, all evil deeds, they stink. You can cover them up for a while, but they don’t go away.

The further you run from your sins, the more exhausted you are when they catch up with you.

    Yes! So glad you included Sommersby in there. I had to read that quote, as well as the Maverick one, with Jodie’s awesome Southern accent.

      Sommersby is one of my favorite movies. Also, the story is set in my neck of the woods. Jodie is known for her more serious roles, but I like her in Maverick better than any of them.

        She really was fantastic in Maverick. And I really like Sommersby, I just watched it again last week. I love that quote you chose, one of the best from the movie in my opinion!
