woz1 Wizard Of Oz

Wizard of the Oz of one of the classic movie that almost everyone cherish and enjoys it. However, when I first saw it as a kid, I was scared and frighten by flying monkeys and some scary imaginary. I liked how movie changes from black and white to color when Dorothy goes to the oz.

The book was written in early 1900s and Wizard of Oz movie came out in 1939. It is now in 2010’s the movie is still classic and loved by many and many of the quotes from the movie such as “follow the yellow brick road..” and “Toto, I do not think we’re in Kansas anymore..” are still used by many TV shows and movies even now.

Here are some memorable quotes from the The Wizard Of The Oz Movie:

“Wizard of Oz: A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.”

“Wizard of Oz: They have one thing you haven’t got: a diploma. Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Universitartus Committiartum E Pluribus Unum, I hereby confer upon you the honorary degree of ThD.
Scarecrow: ThD?
Wizard of Oz: That’s… Doctor of Thinkology.

“Scarecrow: I haven’t got a brain… only straw.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven’t got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don’t know… But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking… don’t they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you’re right. ”
“Auntie Em: Help us out today and find yourself a place where you won’t get into any trouble!
Dorothy: A place where there isn’t any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It’s not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It’s far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain…
[begins to sing “Over the Rainbow”] ”

“Wizard of Oz: As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart. You don’t know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable.
Tin Woodsman: But I still want one.”

“Guardian of the Emerald City Gates: Now, state your business.
Dorothy: We want to see the wizard!

If I only had a brain.”

Cowardly Lion: “[singing] Yeah, it’s sad, believe me, Missy,
When you’re born to be a sissy,
Without the vim and verve.
But I could show my prowess,
Be a lion, not a “mowess,”
If I only had the nerve.”

Munchkins: “[singing] You’re off to see the Wizard,
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
You’ll find he is a whiz of a Wiz
If ever a Wiz there was.
If ever, oh ever, a Wiz there was
The Wizard of Oz is one because
Because, because, because, because, because…
Because of the wonderful things he does.”

Henry: You mean she bit you?
Gulch: No, her dog.
Henry: Oh. She bit her dog, eh?
Gulch: …No!

Auntie Em Gale: Almira Gulch, just because you own half the county doesn’t mean that you have the power to run the rest of us. For twenty-three years, I’ve been dying to tell you what I thought of you! And now… well, being a Christian woman, I can’t say it!

Tin Woodsman, Scarecrow: What’s that?

Wizard of Oz: You, my friend, are a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate impression that just because you run away you have no courage; you’re confusing courage with wisdom.
