27 Best ‘Forrest Gump’ Quotes: Stupid is as Stupid Does

“Remember what I told you, Forrest. You’re the same as everybody else. Do you hear what I said, Forrest. You’re the same as everybody else. You are no different.”

– Mrs. Gump


Everyone should live by this quote. Overall this movie is so inspiring because Forrest is different but he is living a completely normal life. The ‘60s were not a time of open minded people and times were literally changing. The future held a lot of promise for Forrest and if he didn’t think he was any different than anyone else then he would do just fine. 

If you don’t believe you are different, then you are not! And Mrs. Gump always told Forrest that as a child, which is probably why he was so successful in life, he was just doing what everyone else did – nothing could hold him back.
