The DDB Life Style Study asked Americans what movie line best describes their life philosophy and 26 percent chose "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get."

"We would have expected that in America, where people are often characterized as being overly materialistic, lines like 'Show me the money' would have risen to the top," James Lou of DDB says in a statement.

"We were pleasantly surprised to learn that people are much more likely to embrace unpredictability and sentimentality for their life philosophies."

Twenty-one percent chose from "The Wizard of Oz,""There's no place like home," and 8 percent chose "Carpe diem," or seize the day from the movie the "Dead Poets Society."

The remaining Top 10 movie lines are:

-- "Get busy livin' or get busy dyin,'" from "The Shawshank Redemption."

-- "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night," from "All About Eve."
