In our on-going quest to digest the greatest quotes of all-time today we take a look at Sean Connery quotes. Sean Connery, and his quotes, are widely considered to be Scotland’s greatest modern export (or perhaps just considered so by myself), so it was only a matter of time until we took a hard look at the best and most popular Sean Connery quotes both from his personal life and his lasting legacy on the big screen. Though Sean Connery’s legacy is that of ‘the greatest James Bond ever’ he’s managed to impart pearls of wisdom at very turn of his career, and for that we at Guyism are thankful.

Popular quotes can serve both as a reminder of humility, a source of humor and a catalyst of inspiration. So if popular quotes is what you fancy then be sure to check out past editions of this post here.

“My view is that to get anywhere in life you have to be anti-social, otherwise you'll end up being devoured. I've never been particularly social, anyway, but if I've ever been rude, fifty per cent of it has usually been provoked by other people's attitudes. Though I do admit, like most Celts, I'm moody. It's fine until people try to cheer you up with gems like, 'snap out of it' or 'Come on, now'.”
