Arthur Curry is a man of few words. The ocean-residing member of the Justice League doesn’t have any epic monologues or rousing rallying speeches in the latest DC movie, but that’s okay. Aquaman doesn’t need superfluous syllables to share his enthusiasm. We could all stand to embrace a little of his direct, to the point method of communication.
To that end, here are seven Aquaman quotes from Justice League that you can and absolutely should use in everyday life. Like, in your next conversation.
Anytime a friend helps you out or does you a solid, remember that a simple “thank you” will not suffice. Show your appreciation with an emphatic, “My man!”
“You really are out of your mind.”
“I dig it.”
When you hear a fantastic idea, don’t just say, “Okay.” Give it a little more gusto to inspire confidence. “I dig it” lets someone know that you love what they’re bringing to the table and that you’re cool.
“A strong man is strongest alone.”
If you’re an introvert and/or control freak, being assigned a group project is one of the worst things that can happen in life. Next time a boss or teacher tries to put you in that situation, be like Aquaman and remind them “A strong (wo)man is strongest alone.”
“It’s on him.”
“You tell anyone about this, you will meet every piranha I know!”
