If the doldrums have you down, enjoy some funny quotes about life from movies and get reminded of the lighter side of life. Like comedian Bill Hicks once noted, “It's always funny until someone gets hurt. Then, it's just hilarious. “

 “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” Dean Wormer (John Vernon) may be a villain to John Blutarsky (John Belushi) in 1978’s “National Lampoon’s Animal House” but you can’ really dispute the advice, proving you can learn about life from movies.

“Don't knock masturbation.  It's sex with someone I love." Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) from “Annie Hall” (1977) certainly knows that love, even self-love, means never having to say you’re sorry to anybody, a quote about life than can, ahem, come in handy.

“Snakes!  Why did it have to be snakes?” Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is a professor of ancient civilizations and should know that, of course, it’s snakes in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1987). History repeats itself, after all, and for Indy, it’s all about the snakes.  

“Sometimes you gotta say, “What the fuck.” Miles (Tom Cruise) in “Risky Business” (1983) takes an unusual path to college, as well as subway commuting, which leads to a very happy ending indeed. So, follow his movie quote about life, and see where it leads you.

“Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.” Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) may be crazy in 1983’s “The King of Comedy” but he’s also happy, so follow his quote from the movie. Being a star, even if only in your own mind, can at least keep you smiling.

 “Well, nobody's perfect,” says Osgood Fielding III (Joe E. Brown) when he discovers his fiancé Daphne is actually a Jerry (Jack Lemmon) in “Some Like It Hot” (1959). Now, if that isn’t unconditional love, then it doesn’t exist in this funny quote ranked on the AFI’s Top 100 Movie Quotes.

“You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?” asks “Dirty Harry” (Clint Eastwood). Clint may not be joking in the 1971 crime classic, but that quote has been eliciting laughs from audience ever since.

“Well, it's not the men in your life that counts. It's the life in your men.” Mae West, as Tira in “I’m No Angel” (1933), sounds like the kind of gal that you could really enjoy in this funny quote that helped make her a legend.

"There's no crying in baseball!" Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) in “A League of Their Own” may be a washed up drunk, but he does know the game.

 “You aren't too bright.  I like that in a man.” Matty Walker (Kathleen Turner) has a refreshingly unusual approach to the opposite sex in this famous quote about love from 1981’s “Body Heat.”
