Great quotes from The Great Debaters movie

The Great Debaters is an awesome and my all time favourite movie. There are many dialogues in the movie that continue to inspire us. Watch it five times, ten times or hundred times, you will always love this movie. Many of the dialogues in the movie are striking and very well delivered.

who is the judge
A scene from The Great Debaters.


Here are two of my favourite quotes from the movie:


“Who is the judge?

The judge is God.

Why is he God?

Because he decides

who wins or loses,

not my opponent.

Who is your opponent?

He doesn’t exist.

Why does he not exist?

He’s merely a dissenting voice to the truth I speak.

Speak the truth.”


“When I was a child,

I spoke as a child.

I understood as a child.

I thought as a child.

But when I became a man, I put away all childish things.”
