We all wish to have super-powers like our Marvel superheroes. While we probably not be capable to throw mega thunder, mystic waves, or fly around in an iron man suit, we can surely comprise the true spirit of our favourite Marvel heroes by recalling the many pearls of wisdom they have dropped over the years. There are a lot of things they have said that inspire us all to be better, but some more than others. And here they are, some of the most inspirational and relatable quotes ever said in Marvel movies. These quotes are sure to get you moving through your tough days. Whether you feel stuck in a grind or just need a good dose of inspiration from your favourite superheroes, these quotes should do the magic!

1. “Whatever happens tomorrow, you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are, not a perfect soldier, but a good man

- Dr Abraham Erskine

Movie - Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

This marvel movie quote not only sums up Captain America very well, it reminds us that we can be the most qualified person in our careers, but the most significant thing we can be is a good person. Similarly, it should be understood that Dr Erskine says ‘good man’, and not ‘perfect man’. Making mistakes and messing up is unavoidable even for superheroes, and that's okay as long as you learn from your mistakes and don't allow them to define who you are.

2. “Everyone fails at who they are supposed to be, Thor. The measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are

- Frigga

Movie: Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Just like many other quotes from the Marvel, this one encourages us to work to be the best we can be, specifically, the best version of ourselves. We all have some expectations put upon us regarding who we ‘supposed’ to be, usually from a very young age. They come from everywhere, friends, family, and society, but this generally sets us up for failure as these expectations often involve a specific list of goals and attributes that just aren't fully suited to most people in one way or another.

3. “I can't control their fear, only my own

- Scarlet Witch

Movie - Captain America: Civil War (2016)

This marvel movie quote expresses a huge mistake made by the Scarlet Witch, and we all do some huge mistakes in our lives. But even after her mistake, she knows that she is a capable fighter and she can control all her fears, regardless of what others think of her. Similarly, as much as we try, we cannot wholly control how others view is, but we do have the power of control how we see ourselves, and we can always have the control over our fears.

4. “We never lose our demons, Mordo. We only learn to live above them”

- The ancient one

Movie - Dr Strange (2016)

There's both light and darkness in this quote, it presents the idea that things like doubts, fear, and regrets will never fully leave our minds, but reminds us that even though it will likely take a fair amount of work, it is possible to move forward in life despite these experiences staying with us. The quote acts to give ‘permission’ to let the negative experiences and trauma we face in life become a part of us, rather than suppress us. This is a significant step in accepting ourselves and a key to beginning to move forward.

5. “I choose to run towards my problems, and not away from them. Because that's what heroes do!

- Thor

Movie - Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

The Thunder God Thor is correct here as well. In most cases, the avoidance of confronting worrying, or scary situations only serves to make them worse. So, it's only natural that a big part of what defines a hero is their willingness to jump into action to solve problems. Facing your troubles can be uncomfortable or even frightening, but it's ultimately the right thing to do.

6. “Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say, No, you move!”

- Sharon Carter

Movie - Captain America: Civil War (2016)

The quote is from the other side of the Civil War conflict, but again one that can serve as a positive takeaway to Marvel fans on either side of the story. When faced with a conflict, the solution that has been pressed upon us since childhood is to do a compromise with the opposing party. But there are some situations in which we shouldn't compromise, usually when it's a matter of personal morals rather than simply a difference of opinions on important matters.

7. “But in times of crises the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe”

- Black Panther

Movie - Black Panther (2018)

Our world is dealing with a lot of stuff right now. A global pandemic, wars, inflation, political unrest and what not. And we also lost our beloved T'Challa, the black panther this year. And all these events have made this quote even more relatable. It's during the hard times like these in which the world must come together to survive and work as one global community towards a better future.
