If you have watched the movie The Wolf of Wall Street, you probably found some of the statements / quotes quite interesting or funny, the only problem with the quotes is that there’s a lot of swear words, here’s some gems with limited swearing:
Jordan Belfort: Let me tell you something. There’s no nobility in poverty. I have been a rich man and I have been a poor man. And I choose rich every fuckin’ time. Because, at least as a rich man, when I have to face my problems, I show up in the back of the limo, wearing a $2000 suit and a $40,000 gold fuckin’ watch.
Jordan Belfort: Brad, show them how it’s done. Sell me that pen. Watch. Go on.
Brad: You want me to sell you this fucking pen?
Jordan Belfort: That’s my boy right there. Can **** sell anything.
Brad: Why don’t you do me a favor. Write your name down on that napkin for me.
Jordan Belfort: I don’t have a pen.
Brad: Exactly. Supply and demand, my friend.
Jordan Belfort: My name is Jordan Belfort. I’m a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.
Mark Hanna: The name of the game, moving the money from the client’s pocket to your pocket.
Jordan Belfort: But if you can make your clients money at the same time it’s advantageous to everyone, correct?
Mark Hanna: No.
Jordan Belfort: [narrating to the camera] An I.P.O. is an initial public offering. It’s the first time a stock is offered for sale to the general population. Now as the firm taking the company public, we set the initial sales price then sold those shares right back to our friends. Yet…
[stops and chuckles]
Jordan Belfort: Look, I know you’re not following what I’m saying anyway, right? That’s… that’s okay, that doesn’t matter. The real question is this: was all this legal? Absolutely ****** not. But we were making more money than we knew what do with.
Jordan Belfort: The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.
Jordan Belfort: This right here is the land of opportunity. This is America. This is my home! The show goes on!
[quoting Norma Rae]
Jordan Belfort: They’re gonna need to send in the National Guard to take me out, cos I ain’t going nowhere!
Jordan Belfort: So you listen to me and you listen well. Are you behind on your credit card bills? Good, pick up the phone and start dialing! Is your landlord ready to evict you? Good! Pick up the phone and start dialing! Does your girlfriend think you’re a **** worthless loser? Good! Pick up the phone and start dialing! I want you to deal with your problems by becoming rich!
Mark Hanna: So if you’ve got a client who bought stock at 8 and now it’s at 16 and he’s all *** happy, he wants to cash in and liquidate, take his fucking money and run home, you don’t let him do that… ’cause that would make it real.
Mark Hanna: Number one rule of Wall Street. Nobody – and I don’t care if you’re Warren Buffet or if you’re Jimmy Buffet – nobody knows if a stock is going to go up, down, sideways or in circles. You know what a fugazi is?
Jordan Belfort: Fugayzi, it’s a fake.
Mark Hanna: Fugayzi, fugazi. It’s a whazy. It’s a woozie. It’s fairy dust. It doesn’t exist. It’s never landed. It is no matter. It’s not on the elemental chart. It’s not **** real.
