By now I guess you are all going to find out I do have an obsession for inspiration in that I am willing to find it anywhere including in Movies and Series.
Today I came up with a list of 2 series and 3 movies that do have inspirational dialogue that is to die for. Enjoy and you might as well go ahead and watch the Movies and series too 🙂
You don’t have to be remembered by the whole world to live a meaningful life
I always thought I would be a hero. I always thought I had a great story to tell. Something they’d publish in the papers. I mean I was supposed to be special. Gus (Augustus Waters)
“You are special” Hazel Grace
“Yeah I know, but you know what I mean” Gus
“I do know what you mean I don’t just agree with you. You have this obsession with being remembered” Hazel Grace
“Don’t get Mad” Gus
“I am mad!! I am mad because I think you are special!!! Isn’t that enough. You think that the only way to live a meaningful life is for everyone to remember you, for everyone to love you. Guess what Gus this is your life. This is all you get! You get me, you get your family and that’s it. If that is not enough then I’m sorry it’s nothing because I love you and I’m gonna remember you”. Hazel Grace. The fault in our stars
To live a successful life you have to draw the line between Fear and Danger
“Son this is not training every single decision we make will be life or death. But if we are going to survive this, you must realize that fear is not real. The only place that fear exists is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of the thoughts you create. Now do not misunderstand me, danger is very real but fear is a choice.” Cypher Raige. After Earth
Before running away from your problems or challenges you have to first ensure you are not just being a little bitch baby.
When the press published pictures of Cyrus Beene and a gay prostitute, Cy was bent on packing up his belongings and leave town for good. But Olivia Pope intervened and this is what she said;
“When did you decide to let them ruin you? So life’s unfair so what? That’s how it is! So they are mean grueling you in the media. There calling you names. They’ve hurt your feelings. They’ve hit your soft spot inside. Well so what?
That’s how it is. So you lost someone you loved. Well guess what grow the hell up that’s how it is. The Cyrus Beene I know doesn’t hide in his empty closet and wipe his eyes like a little bitch baby. I need you to tell me, are you a bitch baby? Are you a bitch baby?
“No I am nobody’s bitch baby! I am Cyrus Beene Secretary of the President! I run this Country”. Scandal Season 5
In the end he stayed and faced his problems head on.
We all love to hate Machiavelli but at the end of the day the end justifies the means
When Elijah wanted to unite all the different fraternities in their community, the Werewolves and the Vampires couldn’t sit at the same table to discuss the future of New Orleans. He sought Klaus’s advice;
“Take a page from Bienville, brother. If the table’s the obstacle, remove it. When the town mayor wanted us to support the construction of the new bridge in the past we refused to help out. Then he threw a party, wined us and dined us with corseted women and that night we allowed to help out.” – Klaus Mikaelson The Originals season 1 episode 17.
So whatever end result you want to get out of all your pursuits (be it political, romantic or career wise) focus less on the means and envision the end result.
Sometimes if your reasons for staying are stronger than your reasons for quitting, persistence is a much needed companion.
“You are not my master and I’m not the dragon warrior” Pow
“Then why didn’t you quit. You knew I was trying to get rid of you yet you stayed” Master Shifu
“Yeah I stayed! I stayed because every time you threw a brick at my head or said I smelled it hurt but it could never hurt more than it did everyday of my life just being ME. I stayed because I thought if anyone could make me not ME, it was YOU the greatest KungFu Teacher in the whole of China. Pow KungFu Panda
Hope you are inspired.
