50+ Ultimate Titanic Quotes That We Will Never Let Go Of

The famous quotes from the 'Titanic' will always help one figure life out.

The Titanic is said to be the biggest ship that set sail in 1912.

Titanic was noted to be 'unsinkable' and hence, had the least number of lifeboats on board, leading to the tragedy that we all watch even after 100 years. The Titanic sank and left us with a deep ocean of secrets and memories of cold Jack, an unforgettable love-story, and narrations from old Rose.

The story of the Titanic was turned into a popular drama by James Cameron in 1997. Though there was no actual Rose as a person on the Titanic, the movie, directed by James Cameron, is shown to us from Rose's point of view, which was inspired by Beatrice Wood, who was the only woman to survive after being pulled out of the water after the collision.

Rose Dewitt Bukater, played by Kate Winslet, initially engaged to an aristocratic man, falls in love with a man named Jack Dawson, played by Leonardo Dicaprio, on the ship. One of the famous quotes from 'Titanic' by Rose Dewitt Bukater at the end of the movie is "I'll never let go", which denotes a romantic story's tragic fate. Jack's infamous line "promise me you will survive, that you will never give up, not matter what happens, no matter how hopeless, promise me now, and never let go of that promise" is etched into the hearts of many. Apart from these tragic quotes, happy quotes like the one where Jack says, "I'm the king of the world! Woo hoo hoo!" when he first steps on the Titanic makes the story cheerful too. This list has some inspirational 'Titanic' quotes and funny Titanic quotes by Rose and Jack, old Rose, and other characters.
