4). Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump is an American film released in the year 1994. It’s one of the simplest yet beautiful movies that gives you the message of living a simple life.

One of the best quotes of the movie is ““Every man dies, but not every man lives.” The Movie is the best representative of honor and nobility.
It inspires us to never give up in any circumstances. And never compromise with our values! If you are feeling low and thinking of giving up, Braveheart will make you rethink your decision.
Because, if William Wallace had given up that day, it would not have been the inspiration! According to the movie, we must fight for our freedom and life, at any cost.
