    +1 for Henry V.

    In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and – SNAP – the job's a game!

    When someone tells you you have incurable cancer, do what I did. Go straight to your computer, bring up YouTube, and put this on. Loud.

    There is some swearing.

    Hal Moore's speech that Mel Gibson does in "We Were Soldiers" (before they ship out) is pretty powerful IMO

    Army Rangers have a proud history. Since the 1700s, Rangers have led the way in every major confrontation in which the United States has been involved. You men are a credit to that fine heritage, and I'm sorry to see you go. But you've served your country well, and you've displayed the ability to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete its mission, never leaving behind a fallen comrade no matter what the odds or the enemy. I thank you. America thanks you. And I wish you luck wherever you go. And remember: Rangers lead the way.

    that was the basis of the video sent out to all the team GB cyclists ans support staff by Dave Brailsford at the beginning of the Beijing Olympics training campaign

    you might say it worked

    i have the actual video they sent out but i'm loathe to put it on youtube as i got it from brailsford himself

    (not because i'm in team GB by the way)

    Pulp Fiction – Samual l Jackson before he shoots Brad.


    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

    The bit at the end of Long Kiss Goodnight where the heroine Charlie/Samantha is nearly dead and her daughter Caitlin echoes back her earlier lines about "stand up and fight soldier, that's an order"

    Cheesy, but gives me a massive lump in my throat and "dust in my eye" every time 😳

    It all comes down to a simple choice, get busy living or get busy dying.

    That's damn right.

    GrahamS – the post never said anything about a favourite motivational speech!

    I do like it a lot though. Possibly not entirely motivational but seemed to get Sam up for the task he had to do.

    In the office:
    Jack Nicholson, A Few Good Men (1992): You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know – that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

    Martin Sheen, Apocalypse Now : When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I'm here a week now… waiting for a mission… getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the bush, he gets stronger. Each time I looked around the walls moved in a little tighter.

    Branagh or Olivier in Henry V.

    Yes. I preferthe Branagh, becuase I like the understated style, but Olivier really does have some merit.

    Saw Branagh play Hmalet at the RSC around 15 years ago. Best performance of the Danish Prince I've ever seen.

    GrahamS – I've had a look – can't see the word favourite

    GrahamS and Tiggs it doesn't matter, who cares, have you seen my choices so far…

    Someone please find something motivational in Napoleon Dynamite!

    Yeah, a lot of pressure.
    Rise above it.

    Harness in the good energy,
    block out the bad.

    Harness energy, block bad.

    Feel the flow, Happy.
    It's circular.

    It's like a carousel.

    You get on the horse.
    It goes up, down and around.

    Circular. Circle. With the music,
    the flow. ALL good things.

    They believe they're destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable?

    Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? – – Carpe – – hear it? – – Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary…..

    From experience I can assert that Mr Agreeable's favourite is, in fact, The Good The Bad and the Ugly:

    "You see in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with fig rolls, and those who dig. You dig."

    Which is what, when I saw the movie up at Leicester Sq., the woman two seats away started screaming when the charge got to full-tilt… 😯

    Jack Nicholson in "A few good men"! The bit where he loses it in the courtroom… not sure if it's really motivational though…

    Well, IMHO the greatest motivational speech came fromt the mouth of the great Leslie Nielsen in Airplane!

    Well, I don't have anything to say, you've done the best you could. You really have, the best you could. You can't expect to win em all. But, I want to tell you something I've kept to myself through these years. I was in the war myself, medical corps. I was on late duty one night when they brought in a badly wounded pilot from one of the raids. He could barely talk. He looked at me and said, "The odds were against us up there, but we went in anyway, I'm glad the Captain made the right decision." The pilot's name was George Zip.

    George Zip said that?

    The last thing he said to me, "Doc," he said, "some time when the crew is up against it, and the breaks are beating the boys, tell them to get out there and give it all they got and win just one for the Zipper. I don't know where I'll be then, Doc," he said, "but I won't smell too good, that's for sure."

    Excuse me doc, I got a plane to land.

    The weekend has landed. All that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. I've got 48 hours off from the world, man. I'm gonna blow steam out my head like a screaming kettle, I'm gonna talk cod shit to strangers all night, I'm gonna lose the plot on the dancefloor. The free radicals inside me are freakin', man! Tonight I'm Jip Travolta, I'm Peter Popper, I'm going to never-never land with my chosen family, man. We're gonna get more spaced out than Neil Armstrong ever did, anything could happen tonight, you know? This could be the best night of my life. I've got 73 quid in my back burner – I'm gonna wax the lot, man! The Milky Bars are on me! Yeah!

    Never regret and never hesitate, just remember Bogart at the end of Casablanca,

    "If you dont get on that plane, you'll regret it, maybe not tommorow but some day soon and for the rest of your life"

    Possibly not word perfect and i cant be arsed with Utube but you get the idea.
