Movie quotes as motivators

Trying to find motivation to keep writing? Movie quotes work great:

If I write, my voice will come.

I'm not being ignored, am I? (My story threatening me.)

You talkin' to me? (My characters being sassy.)

This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. (my computer when I actually sit at the keyboard to write.)

My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my plot / flow / tension / forward motion. Prepare to die. (Speaking to unnecessary dialogue / descriptions / characters.)

I suppose I should stop procrastinating now and return to the ultimate power in the universe.
