The best Titanic quotes include some of the most memorable lines uttered in this 2012 3D release of the classic 1997 movie.

Many of the greatest quotes from the 'Titanic' movie involve Jack and Rose, whose romance is ill-fated from the start. If your favorite 'Titanic' quote is listed, be sure to vote it up. And, if you have a personal favorite quote from the film that isn't listed, please, add it.
Director James Cameron decided to re-release 'Titanic' in 3D to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the RMS Titanic's fateful first (and only) voyage. The Titanic sank in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912, after hitting an iceberg. More than 1500 people died. In the movie 'Titanic,' this event was portrayed in vivid detail. But the 'Titanic' movie focuses heavily on romance as well as disaster, chronicling the fateful meeting of young lovers Rose and Jack. The film, which also stars Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Gloria Stuart, Bill Paxton and Frances Fisher, won 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Visual Effects. 'Titanic 3D' takes these visual effects to a whole new level, 14 years after the original film's theatrical release.
King of the World
No doubt, this is one of the most memorable and iconic quotes from 'Titanic.' The image of Jack and Rose "flying" at the end of the ship is unforgettable.
Jack Dawson: "I'm the king of the world!"
Jack tries everything to get Rose on one of the few lifeboats, but she's stubborn and strong-willed. Eventually, they both go into the freezing water together, but Jack is able to save Rose's life -- sacrificing his own. This death scene has GOT to be one of the most tear-jerking moments in cinematic history...
Rose: "I love you, Jack."
Jack: "Don't you do that, don't say your good-byes."
Rose: "I'm so cold."
Jack: "Listen, Rose. You're gonna get out of here, you're gonna go on and make lots of babies, and you're gonna watch them grow. You're gonna die an old - an old lady warm in her bed, but not here, not this night. Not like this, do you understand me?"
Rose: "I can't feel my body."
Jack: "Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful. You must do me this honor, Rose. Promise me you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise."
Rose: "I promise."
Jack: "Never let go."
Rose: "I'll never let go. I'll never let go, Jack."
Make Each Day Count
Little does Jack know just how important his philosophy of making each day count will be. He has no idea that the days he's living now, with Rose, will be his final ones.
Jack (to Ruth): "Well, yes, ma'am, I do. I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you -- to make each day count."
Only In My Memory
There's no official record of Jack Dawson on the 'Titanic' because he was a drifter -- he would not have been on the passenger list. Rose Dawson Calvert explains that Jack saved her -- literally and figuratively.
Lewis Bodine: "We never found anything on Jack -- there's no record of him at all."
Old Rose: "No, there wouldn't be, would there? And I've never spoken of him until now... Not to anyone... Not even your grandfather. A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that he saved me, in every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now... only in my memory."
