Today, as Julianne Moore waited a tad too long before announcing DiCaprio’s name as the winner for best actor at the 88th Oscars, most film lovers waited in anticipation. As the world celebrates Leo’s win, we can’t help but admire how in each of his movies, DiCaprio has subtly instilled in us the spirit of entrepreneurship. While The Aviator was the journey of a man who risked everything to fulfil his desire to fly, The Wolf of Wall Street reflected upon the consequences when greed takes over morality. While The Gangs of New York was a perfect David versus Goliath tale, The Revenant was all about endurance. Heck! Even Inception was about dreams!
As we join hands with other fans and congratulate Leo on winning the Oscars, we present to you a list of Leonardo DiCaprio movie quotes, which in some way or the other, help keep the spirit of entrepreneurship alive.
