The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 American black comedy film directed by Martin Scorsese, based on Jordan Belforts memoir of the same name. It was released on December 25, 2013. The screenplay was written by Terence Winter, and the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort, a New York stockbroker who runs a firm that engages in securities fraud and corruption on Wall Street in the 1990s.
The film received positive reviews from critics, but was also controversial for its moral ambiguity, sexual content, presence of drug abuse, vulgarity, and use of animals. The film grossed over $389 million worldwide against a $100 million budget, and was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Scorsese, Best Adapted Screenplay for Terrence Winter, and Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for DiCaprio and Hill, respectively, but failed to win in any category. It is the first major film to be released to theaters entirely through digital distribution. The film also holds the record for the most uses of the word fuck in a mainstream non-documentary film.

1. You see money doesnt just buy you a better life, better food, better cars, better women, it makes you actually a better person. You can give generously to your church or political party of your choice.
2. You want to know what money sounds like? Go to a trading floor on wall street.
3. There are two keys to success in the broker business; first of all you gotta stay relaxed, secondly you gotta always get stay high.
4. Always keep the client on the Ferris wheel. [Always keep the client wanting more].
5. One thing i can promise you in this market is that i never ask my clients to judge me on my winners, I ask them to judge me on my looser cos I have so few.
6. Just like that I made two grand, the other guys looked at me like I just discovered fire. [When you achieve what no one thought possible in such a small time time, you become a king to them].
7. If you listen, its easier than you think, everyone you are with wanna get rich and they wanna get rich quick. [The truth is if you put your ears down and observe the details, you will know what people need and if you can get this and sell it to them, you make money].
8. Its not gonna make you rich, its not gonna make you poor, what this stock will do is serve as a bench mark for future businesses. [There is wisdom in investing].
9. There is no nobility in poverty, iv been a rich man, iv been a poor man, and I choose rich every time. [I understand that when we came to this world, we came with nothing, and when we leave, its with nothing thus it wont be a good thing not to read the many books there are in this life or see the beautiful, exotic and exciting places there are in this life and without money, i cannot do that.
