Life is like a box of chocolates

The wonderful Lois Lane II recently had a movie quote challenge on her blog.

I LOVE movies, so I thought I'd have a little challenge of my own.

Can you name that movie?!

1. There's no crying in baseball!

2. I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, that has always been enough.

3. Uh oh, fifteen minutes to Judge Wapner.

4. You are everything I never knew I always wanted.

5. I am not going to bury my son! My son is going to bury me!

6. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.

7. Promise you won't kidnap me and my bruder and plant stuff in our brains?

8. If I can change, and you can change, everybody can change. (that's for Josh & all the guys)

9. 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!

10. Don't cry, Shopgirl. Don't cry.

Easy, peasy, right?!

Go ahead and guess away! I'll be back in a couple of days to reveal the answers.

Oh, and don't cheat by peeking at other's comments or by Googling!!!! As much as I heart Google, don't cheat! ;-)
