It may be hard to believe, but 20 years ago yesterday on July 6, 1994, Forrest Gump landed in theaters.

It's hard, looking back, to imagine a world without the Tom Hanks-starring film. 

Hanks would win an Oscar for the role and the Robert Zemeckis-directed film would go on to win the Oscar for Best Picture. And along the way, Forrest Gump quotes would permeate our society beyond just the usual movie-quoting world. 

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Forrest Gump and its impact on America (heck, we just named it one of the 21 most patriotic films of all time!), we present our 11 favorite Forrest Gump quotes. 

And why not watch Forrest Gump online and remind yourself why this film is such a classic that transcends time.

Honestly, it would be one of the movies we'd put in a time capsule to capture the greatness of what Hollywood can do.

Forrest Gump Quotes

You know it's funny what a young man recollects? 'Cause I don't remember bein' born. I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the wide world.

Forrest Gump

Jenny Curran: Why are you so good to me?
Forrest Gump: You're my girl!
Jenny Curran: [pause] I'll always be your girl.
