Don Juan DeMarco is an 1995 drama-romance film about a man who thought himself to be the world's greatest lover.

Don Juan / John R. DeMarco

  • When I say that all woman are dazzling beauties, they object. This one's nose is too large... the hips of another are too wide, perhaps the breast of a third, they are too small. But I see these women for how they truly are: Glorious... radiant, spectacular and perfect because I am not limited by my eyesight. Women react on me the way that they do Don Octavio because they sense that I search out the beauty that dwells within them until it overwhelms everything else. And then they cannot avoid their desire: to release that beauty and envelop me in it.
  • There are only four questions of value in life, Don Octavio: What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for? And what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.

Don Octavio / Jack Mickler

  • I just feel as thought we've surrendered our lives to the momentum of mediocrity.
  • I want to know what your dreams and your hopes are that got lost along the way while I was thinking about myself.
