Pirates of the Caribbean: 10 Iconic Jack Sparrow Quotes
03/04/2023

Captain Jack Sparrow is perhaps the luckiest, most ruthless, and, at times, the dumbest pirate that ever lived. Throughout the  movies, most of the time, he gets by on sheer luck, a lot of alcohol, and an awesome crew to have his back when it isn't otherwise engaged with the ground. In almost every movie, Jack is in serious trouble with the authorities, has stolen something he should’ve never touched, and probably has no clue where his ship or crew is — and he couldn’t care less, as long as he has his precious rum. But let’s not be too hard on him.  a fantastic, lovable Captain Jack Sparrow.

No doubt, the  series will never be the same without him, and we can only . Underneath his rugged exterior, Captain Jack Sparrow has a good heart, a mind for fool’s gold, and makes an outstanding friend (most of the time). There’s no better way to celebrate a fantastic character than to review their best quotes. After all, an important, main role in a franchise usually means there’s a ton of great, memorable quotes to be repeated to all of our friends until they can’t stand it anymore. Without further ado, here’s the 10 most iconic Jack Sparrow quotes.

10"Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate."

Jack Sparrow is a man of (occasional) touching words, especially when they matter the most. To most pirates, treasure is black and white: gold, silver, jewels, and any other valuables they can swindle from another. But the rum-loving pirate seems to have a different view on the matter. Treasure can be gold and silver, yes. Of course, it is. But treasure can also be the woman you love or the view of the ocean abroad your ship. Most of all, treasure is never worth your own life, no matter how many times the Captain finds himself in deep water with the authorities.

9"If you choose to lock your heart away, you'll lose her for certain."

Another inspiring quote from Jack Sparrow, this one leans towards the love side, a side we typically don't see too often in the Captain. It is aimed at Will when he contemplates killing Davy Jones, knowing his and Elizabeth's relationship would surely suffer for the quest. In regard to Elizabeth and Will's relationship, it , but they surely know it was worth all the trouble. This specific quote has been saved many times, finding itself on IMDb's list of Jack Sparrow Quotes.

8"The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem."

One of the most astonishing traits about Jack Sparrow was his ability to be wanted by literally everyone in, yet he remains unscathed the majority of all the , no matter who was out for his head. This was largely due to the concept of this quote. He always held a confident and approachable outlook to any problem, typically coming up with solutions on the fly and keeping his attitude in check. Well, most of the time.

7"I do that quite a lot, yet people are always surprised."

The Captain told the truth most of the time. He may have beat around the bush before saying it, but he typically never withheld the truth from his crew or even his enemies. This is why, in this scene, he states "I do that quite a lot, yet people are always surprised," responding to the fact that most people expect Jack to lie and scheme since he is a pirate, often being surprised when they find out he was telling the truth.

6"This is the day you will always remember as the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow."

How many times do we hear this quote throughout all the  movies? More often than not, he is correct in assuming they will not catch him, leaving him plenty of time to voice his classic and famous quote. Let's be honest, they may very well catch Captain Jack Sparrow, but they'll never have him for long. This famous line has followed Sparrow actor Johnny Depp so much, that when he won his defamation trial earlier this year, fans flooded the internet with this quote.

5"I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man can always be trusted to be dishonest."

Jack Sparrow did a large amount of questionable and wrong things throughout the franchise's history, and as a pirate in general, but his honesty always gave him favor in almost every situation. Even when speaking this line about being dishonest, there was a certain level of honesty in it. He was willing to admit that he was a dishonest man and set the expectations for anyone who interacted with him. Total respect, Captain.

4"No survivors? Then, where do the stories come from, I wonder?"

In this specific scene, when Jack is locked up in jail, he hears the other inmates growing anxious over the news of the undead crew returning, remarking about how they never leave anyone alive. Using his common sense, Jack makes this witty comment, showing his disapproval of the idea. The best part is, it's 100% true. If there were no survivors, where would the stories come from?

3"If you were waiting for the opportune moment, that was it."

Ah, Jack always knows how to state the obvious. Will never seems to know how to time anything. Therefore, Jack spends a lot of time throughout the Pirates movies reminding Will he should most likely be doing whatever he is trying to do right then. This was one of those moments and of course, it involved Elizabeth. Some speculate , but we all know shy Will was where her heart belonged.

2"No cause is lost, if there is but one fool left to fight for it."

Deemed as one of the most relatable quotes in the series, this line packs a punch into all of our hearts. Jack Sparrow was a strong believer in fighting for what he wanted, no matter if he was fighting with no one by his side. Luckily, most of the time, his trusty crew backed him up and ventured head-first into his crazy ideas. A cause is only an idea if there's no one to support it.

1"The only rules that matter are these: what a man can do, and what a man can't do."

One of Jack Sparrow's best qualities was his ability to see reason. He wasn't blinded by the concept of fortune or ruling the seas. He longed to be recognized, to be important, but he always stayed grounded and humble when it came to important matters. The Captain knew he reached for the skies at times, but for the most part, he was clearly able to determine what he was able to do, what he couldn't do and what he could probably do, if he had help from his loyal crew.
