Since its inception with Iron Man in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a sense of comfort for fans around the world. It has given audiences jokes and fun Marvel moments to laugh at as well as emotional heartbreaking moments to cry on.
Through its 27 films and five Disney + series, MCU has also sneaked in with advice that viewers can also apply in their daily lives, where each character is given time to shine and give some words of wisdom.
Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame
“No amount of money ever bought a second at a time.”
While the Avengers are completing their “time heist”. Avengers: Endgame, Tony comes face to face with his father Howard. The two discuss funny enough parenting when Tony drops this line, but it can be used on more than just family relationships. It serves as a reminder that time is truly priceless and to use it wisely. While money can be crucial, it means significantly less without any loved ones nearby. Finding time for friends and family is super important to live life to the fullest.
Peggy Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
“Everything we can do is our best, and sometimes the best thing we can do is start over.”
IN Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Steve visits an elderly Peggy in the hospital and they talk about the world and how much it has changed since Steve went on the ice during Captain America: The First Avenger. Everyone makes mistakes, it’s a part of life, and it’s extremely beneficial to learn from those mistakes. As Peggy said, everyone can do their best, but if circumstances do not improve or give the desired results, it’s more than okay to start over. People tend to try to rush success, but going back and giving everything can lead to greatness.
Aunt May and Spider-Man: No Way Home
“With great power, there must also come a great responsibility.”
This is a line that Spider-Man enthusiasts have loved for decades, and Spider-Man: No Way Home finally delivered it on screen as part of the MCU. May gives Peter this advice before she sadly passes away, and it hangs with him and the audience as time goes on.
No matter what power one possesses, whether it is super or not, it is crucial how that power is used. Abusing any power will never end well, while helping those in need is a much better and more satisfying way to use it.
Carol Danvers and Captain Marvel
“I have nothing to prove to you.”
Towards the end of Captain Marvel, Carol says this quote to her old leader Yon-Rogg after he tried to get her to fight without her efforts to prove she’s on par with him. Carol, realizing that she does not need to convince him of anything, is a powerful moment that can resonate with those who watch. It shows that as long as someone is aware of their own strength and worth, then no one can take it from them. This is an excellent confidence lesson that can be used in everyone’s life.
Take Lo Villager in Shang Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings
“If you do not aim for anything, you do not hit anything.”
Katy finds out that she learns archery from some of the villagers in Ta Lo just before the final fight in Shang Chi and the legend of the ten rings. One of these villagers says this quote to her when Katy was a little insecure in archery training, and it certainly contains a deeper meaning behind it that can also be applied in the lives of the audience. It is important to have dreams and hopes to pursue in life, because with them life feels stagnant. To move forward, there must be some sort of goal in mind to pursue, and it’s safe to assume that fans will see Katy pursue her new ambitions in the confirmed Shang-Chi succeeds film.
Vision In Avengers: Age Of Ultron
“One thing is not beautiful because it lasts.”
In the wake of the Battle of Sokovia in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Vision recites these words to the very last of the Ultron robots before eventually destroying it, and therefore destroying the last trace of the villainous AI. What Vision says is very true, as beauty cannot be valued in duration or length. As Tony said in Avengers: Endgame, “part of the journey is the end”, but that end does not take any value from the journey itself. It is best to accept the fact that not everything lasts forever, and although it is not good to dwell on the past, things can always be remembered and admired for what they were.
Steve Rogers and Captain America: Civil War
“I know you only did what you believe in, and that’s all that any of us can do, that’s all that any of us should do.”
By the exit of Captain America: Civil War, Steve writes these words in a letter to Tony as part of a reminder that he would still be there for Tony when he needed him, despite the differences they had throughout the film. Although they can be seen as rivals in the MCU now, Steve still respects Tony for standing strong in his faith, and it shows fans that they should always do the same. Not everyone will share the same opinion or point of view, but that does not mean that one has to sacrifice or compromise to please those around them.
The ancient one in Doctor Strange
“We never lose our demons Mordo, we only learn to live over them.”
The Old Man says these words to Mordo after he said she was the reason he had been able to overcome his fear and fight his demons. The Sorcerer Supreme’s insight into Doctor Strange acts as a good reminder to the viewers that there is a bit of darkness inside everyone and that is perfectly normal.
People go through all kinds of experiences that can cause grief or trauma that last longer than they like, and it’s okay to carry that weight as long as it does not bring anyone down permanently.
T’Challa I Black Panther
“We need to find a way to take care of each other, as if we were one single tribe.”
Post-credit scene off Black Panther shows T’Challa giving a speech to the UN that includes this quote. He tells these world leaders these words because it is important for people to unite and support each other, especially in times of need. On a smaller scale, fans who watch this scene are reminded that in their own cities or communities they are no different than themselves. They are all skin and bones at the end of the day, so it is best to keep that in mind and treat those around them with kindness.
Sam Wilson in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
“You have to stop looking at other people to tell them who you are.”
In section five of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier titled “Truth,” Sam and Bucky have a serious conversation about the story of the Captain America shield outside Sam’s home. Sam tells these words to Bucky because Bucky sticks to what Steve thought of him, but he must learn to find himself and embrace who Bucky is his own. It is the key for both Bucky and the audience to know that the world cannot define a person, they are the only one with the power to do so.
