Dr. Fritjof Capra once said, “Classic is the greatest.”
That statement, along with a lot of others, has stuck with me since I was a kid, and has kept me thinking about words and phrases I’d like to use.
So I decided to write a list of my favorites, from “Classic” to “What to use in a conversation.”
What do I want to use?
Here are my top five favorites:1.
“Classic,” from the film The Graduate, which won a Pulitzer Prize in 19872.
“Don’t ask me what I do,” from “A Night at the Opera”3.
“It’s a classic,” from The Godfather4.
“We should all do it,” from All About Eve5.
“I know what I like,” from My Name is Earl6.
“That’s the way,” from In The Mood7.
“Oh yeah, I got it,” “It has got to be right,” “You’ll get it,” and “I love you,” from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest8.
“What I like is the simplicity,” from What’s the Story?9.
“The most basic of all, the one you’ve always known,” from How I Met Your Mother10.
“In my heart, I’m a classic” from My Love Story11.
“All the best of it,” a variation of “It Has Got to Be Right,” from A Night at The Opera12.
“Do what I love,” from Who Framed Roger Rabbit13.
“You’ve got to love what you do,” a word that captures my love of writing and music14.
“No more than I love myself,” from Once Upon a Time in America15.
“Keep the old and the young together,” from It’s a Wonderful Life
