Pirates of the Caribbean via Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean is a franchise movie series based on the iconic Disney ride and introduced us to characters such as William Turner, Captain Hector Barbossa, Elizabeth Swan and Mr. Gibbs but Captain Jack Sparrow single handily steals the entire show!

Jack Sparrow is the best pirate the world has ever seen and has outsmarted infamous buccaneers such as Davy Jones and Edward "Blackbeard" Teach and escaped the gallows multiple times with almost never having a plan. Despite his "code," which are more like guidelines, Jack does have a moral compass when it counts and immense determination to always follow his heart (or to where ever there is rum.)

Jack may only look out for himself most of the time but there are moments when he provides a bit of wisdom and sometimes even does the right thing. You don't need to be a scalawag to find a bit of inspiration and wonder in these memorable 15 quotes by the greatest captain to ever said the seven seas!
