12 Quotes From Captain Marvel That Will Make You Think

Captain Marvel was a great installment to the MCU with the 90’s nostalgia and a great backstory to a powerful character. Though full of humor and smiles, several lines from the movie are deep and thought-provoking. Here are the top 12 quotes from Captain Marvel that will get you thinking:

Cedar Creek Lake

1 – “There’s nothing more dangerous to a warrior than emotion.” – Yon-Rogg

Emotions cause us to act irrationally and without strategy. All intelligent cognition tends to leave us when strong feelings take over. Whether in a battle or just driving down the road, when we let emotions take control, we lose our common sense.

2 – “War’s a universal language. I know a rogue soldier when I see one.” – Nick Fury

All cultures know what it’s like to have enemies and wars to fight. And most humans know what it’s like to battle demons internally. We don’t all have to get along, but we should respect the hardships of each other.

3 – “This isn’t about fighting wars. It’s about ending them.” – Lawson

War seems to be inevitable. In regards to your own personal battles, don’t pursue things that will keep you in internal turmoil. Find a way to end the battles.

4 – “Know your enemy. It could be you. Don’t let emotions override your judgement.” – Yon-Rogg

We are our own worst enemy when we allow our feelings to take the wheel and steer our actions.

5 – “Went with his gut against orders. Hard thing to do, but it keeps us human.” – Fury

There’s no standard protocol for humans. We have rules to follow, but everyone and every scenario are unique. Sometimes we have to throw out the rule book and figure out our own path.

6 – “This is war. My hands are filthy from it too.” – Talos

All of us have stains on our soul. There’s no need for regret or shame. Just work to make the future better.

7 – “I’m only human. My name is Carol. I’ve been fighting with one arm tied behind my back. But what happens when I’m finally set free?” – Carol Danvers

Is there something holding you back? Fear, another person, a job, guilt, location? Find ways to cut yourself free from the chains that are pulling you down.

8 – “Arm wrestle for the tesseract?” – Carol

Never lose who you are when facing tough situations. Keep your attitude, your personality, and your soul. Don’t become a different person in times of war (internal or external).

9 – “We need to find more.” – Fury “More weapons?” – Agent Coulson “More Heroes.” – Fury


Heroes exist in the world. Heroes exist within ourselves.

10 – “She found out she was on the wrong side of an unjust war.” – Talos

It’s hard to look at battles from the outside, but it’s crucial to take a step back from the action to keep yourself in check. Are you fighting on the side that matches your values? Have you been lied to? Get the facts before bullets are shot.

11 – “Anger only serves the enemy.” – Yon-Rogg

Again, emotion can be damaging if left uncontrolled. Find ways to release feelings in healthy ways.

12 – “Learn to control your impulses. Stop using this [fists] and start using this [head].” – Yon-Rogg

Think before acting. Figure out a strategy before bursting into a building with a rocket launcher.

3 Ways Captain Marvel Taught me About Life

Marvel blessed the world with three movies last year, one of which was Captain Marvel. Some loved it, others – not so much. Either way, there are a few great pieces of advice found in the action and dialogue of this great movie. (If you didn’t guess already, I’m one of the ones who loved this movie.)

1 – Use your strengths regardless of what others say.

Those unique quirks are yours, and you deserve to put them to good use. Don’t let your team captain make you feel bad for using powers. If you have something special (which we all do), use it.

2 – Not everyone is who they say they are.

Maybe we don’t have real life shape shifting Skrulls running around pretending to be grandmas and agents, but we do still have to deal with false people. Unfortunately, it’s common to come across someone appearing to be someone he/she isn’t. Not everyone is a good, trustworthy confidant.

That being said, honest people do exist. We just have to be genuine and sift through the fake-ness.

3 – We all have a choice.

When Carol learns her life for the past few years has been a lie, she makes the choice to help those truly in need. She could have made any number of other decisions, but it was her choice.

If something doesn’t feel right – make a choice and change it. We all have that incredible power.

On a less serious note – I also re-learned (what I already knew) not to mess with cats. (Or Flerkens?)

Use your strengths, watch out for those pretending to be someone else, and know that we always have a choice.

Learn from everything. Have a good day 😬
