QUOTES from the SANDBOX ~ Sunday, July 22, 2018

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi  Everyone!  Through the years movies have perhaps played a role in our lives - there is a power in words, story lines, images -- a way of learning that goes back to even childhood.  Still recall BAMBI and the lesson being taught to one of the characters, 'Thumper': "If you can't say anything nice, then don't say nothing at all." Today I have brought some movie quotes to the Sandbox  --  meanings behind the words.  Wishing everyone a beautiful Sunday.     As I was writing this post, I did think of each of you and wondered what lines and quotes of a movie stays with you?  I mentioned a few posts back that I was late to seeing the movie, 'Saving Private Ryan.'  Perhaps most of us remember the words on the bridge and at the cemetary.....                                                                                                                                              Jane

                                                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
"Strange, isn't it?  Each man's life touches so many other lives.  When he isn't
around, he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?
                                                               Clarence, the angel  -- It's a Wonderful Life
 
"The accident is your training.  Life is a choice, -  You can choose to be a victim
or anything else you'd like to be."         ~Socrates  -- from  Peaceful Warrior

"The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all."
                                                                            ~The Emperor,    from Mulan

"You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death.
When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions.
Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not,  
                               'Have you found JOY in your life?
                               'Has your life brought JOY to others?'"
                                                    ~Carter Chamber   -- from The Bucket List

"Do, or do not.  There is no try."
                                                      ~Yoda,  --   from The Empire Strikes Back

"Oh yes, the past can hurt.  But you can either run from it, or learn from it."
                                                                           ~Rafiki,    from The Lion King

"In this life time, you don't have to prove nothing to nobody, except
to yourself.  And after what you've gone through, if you haven't done that
by now, it ain't gonna never happen."                    ~Fortune  --    from Rudy

"Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while,
you could miss it."                                  ~Ferris  --  Ferris Bueller's  Day Off
                                                            ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Morning Jane.

It seems like only yesterday that I graduated from high school, only a minute or two that I turned 21.  Now, I'm in the last trimester of my life above ground.  The clock is going faster, I'm enjoying each moment

James, I hear that sentiment from so many people today.  Brings me back to the fun movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.  You know, I really enjoyed that movie and the words sort of sum life up nicely.  Have a great day, James Dray

 Barbara Todaro , when I think of the  number of things that you successfully worked on and accomplished in your life - your family,  your business, your physical and healthy lifestyle, etc., I believe that quote you chose would most closely represent your philosophy...   Have a beautiful Sunday. You are one heck of a motivating inspiration in ActiveRain.

Movie lines are great and they are always popping into my head on a daily basis, some stick more than others.

"We're all travelling through time together every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride."

" I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day to enjoy it as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life."

 Hi Jane, these are two of my very favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies, " About Time."

Hi Jane,
So much wisdom in ALL those quotes.  I could certainly write a blog post around each one.  My favorite?  The one from the Bucket List.  
 'Have you found JOY in your life?
 'Has your life brought JOY to others?'"

Jane,

Recently we bought our 7 year old grand nephew a big Yoda for his room, so I am going with this quote,

"Do, or do not.  There is no try."
                                                      ~Yoda,  --   from The Empire Strikes Back

Gotta go with Yoda and Bueller as well Jane. The first is motivational, the second is philosophical. Both are applicable to how I try to approach life
