J. Edgar Movie Quotes

'J. Edgar' movie quotes include some of the best lines uttered by this Clint Eastwood-directed 2011 drama movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character, former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Most of these quotes are from Hoover himself, as he leads the Bureau with an iron fist. Love him or hate him (and really, Hoover is among the most controversial figures in American history), 'J. Edgar' strives to paint a portrait of the man as he changes the course of how the U.S. protects its citizens from threats. If you don't see your favorite 'J. Edgar' quote on this list, add it. And if you spot a quote that you really like, vote it up (or down, if you hate the line).

'J. Edgar' also stars Armie Hammer (as Hoover's second in command, Clyde Tolson), Naomi Watts, Jeffrey Donovan, Ed Westwick and Judi Dench. The film is based on a script by Dustin Lance Black ('Milk').

    Hoover: "When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. A society unwilling to learn from the past is doomed. We must never forget our history. We must never lower our guard."

    Leonardo DiCaprio's portrayal of one of the most polarizing figures in U.S. history, J. Edgar Hoover, is getting him some Oscar buzz. This quote is a classic.
