Profound quotes from “Me Before You”

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.

Over the years, I had heard so much about Game of Thrones, been flooded with updates and supposed spoilers on my social media feed, and seen so many GOT memes, that I thought I knew enough about the show from people, and didn’t need to see it  myself. I wouldn’t have been surprised if I’d get to see updates of  the show on the news, considering the passion and seriousness with which people across the world watched, discussed, dissected, worshiped and lived the show. I finally changed my mind and decided to see what all the craze was about, six years after it first aired! I’ll admit, I’m late to the party, but I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

As I caught up with seasons, binge watching one after the other, I realized I had something more to learn from the series, than just castles, dragons and white walkers. Throughout the series, I couldn’t help but notice, how a purpose, willingness and determination seemed to dominate several characters and their journeys. Here are some life lessons that I found hidden, amidst the magnificence, royalty, gore and grandeur of the show.

Why I’d recommend reading to everyone

Open a book, and you open a mind.

I had been out of touch with reading for a while. Life’s priorities took over. There was also a year where I dedicated my time solely to write one, and the reading sabbatical extended another  year. Now that I’m back to reading, I feel like a new reader again. Apart from the good old traditional books, i also invest time in going through some amazing blogs related to mind and life. The benefits reading brings, seems like a very less explored area to me. You’ll hear people rave about fitness, travel, clothing and more, but not many speak about books and reading. I wonder why it is, that reading is considered more nerdy, than cool. Personally, I’ve never felt cooler than with a book in my hand, and words in my mind.

As my reading picked up of late, I see welcome changes in me, that I wasn’t even looking for.
