Wall Street Movie

Category: Movie

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the 1987 classic "Wall Street". An epic.

"It's all about bucks, kid. The rest is conversation. "

"It's not always the most popular person who gets the job done. "

"You see that building? I bought that building ten years ago. My first real estate deal. Sold it two years later, made an $800,000 profit. It was better than sex. At the time I thought that was all the money in the world. Now it's a day's pay. "

"Greed is good. "

"If you need a friend, get a dog."

"The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of it's forms - greed for life, for money, knowledge - has marked the upward surge of mankind and greed - you mark my words - will not only save Teldar Paper but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you. "

"What's worth doing is worth doing for money."

"The main thing about money, Bud, is that it makes you do things you don't want to do. "

"How much is enough?
It's not a question of enough, pal. It's a zero sum game, somebody wins, somebody loses. Money itself isn't lost or made, it's simply transferred from one perception to another."
