Best Lines / Quotes from Roman J Israel Esquire movie

Some critics have slammed this film for having a somewhat scatterbrained plot at times, but that's what makes it interesting and exciting until the end. But also the quotes and lines of the eccentric main character, Roman Israel (Denzel Washington), make the film enjoyable to watch. Some of his best lines are:

"Each one of us is greater than the worst thing we've ever done."

"Each of us are agents of change."  
[This a theme the director (Dan Gilroy) wanted to get out there, it's repeated a couple times in the film, and in his interviews]

"I'm tired of doing the impossible for the ungrateful."

"There are no enemies on the outside, the real evil is within."

"Whatever we're chasing, it's here."
"Pardon others folly, it's the first law of nature."
"I believe because of my beliefs."
"It's hard holding conflicting ideas in you head, it takes up too much energy."

In the below clip Denzel says his favourite quotable is line from Roman is when he's stuttering on the phone when asked by a lady to go to dinner.
The trailer underneath that clip is a good one, but it does kind of give most the film away, nonetheless isn't still an enjoy movie to watch if you know most of the plot.
