Late one night, as I surfed through movies to watch, a particular one caught my attention. Titled “Me Before You”, and a poetic poster to go with it, i decided to watch it, only to kill time. By the end of the movie, I became a fan, and how!
Based on a novel by Jojo Moyes, Me Before You, is the story of Louisa Clark and Will Traynor, played by exceptional actors, breathing life into the well written characters. In a bid to help the quadriplegic Will Traynor, believe in living life again, Louisa gets helped instead, getting out of her shell she didn’t even know she was living in. As the two fall in love, the story highlights more on the essence of life and its colors, and the importance of living well, no matter how long you live, or where you do! My take away from the movie was to live simply, boldly and just live! You’ve got only one life after all.
I’d recommend everyone who’s into such genre of movies to watch it, and delve into the life insights it takes you through. Until then, here are some impressive quotes from the movie and the book, about life and love.
You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.
Live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle. Just live well. Just live.
Challenge yourself a bit. You’re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world for a bit. It always does feel strange to be knocked out of your comfort zone.
I will never ever regret the things I’ve done. Because most days, all you have are places in your memory that you can go to.
You’ve done nothing, been nowhere. How do you have the faintest idea what kind of person you are?
The thing about being catapulted into a whole new life, is that it forces you to rethink your idea of who you are.
Some mistakes…just have greater consequences than others. But you don’t have to let the result of one mistake be the thing that defines you.
If you’re going to wear a dress like that you need to wear it with confidence. You need to fill it out mentally as well as physically.
You can only help someone if they want to be helped.
