I am one of those who loves to find beautiful lines in almost everything. I like to save them, re-read them and get amazed by the wit/wisdom with which the writer has managed to bring out the essence of what they are trying to portray out of just words. Seriously, writing is making something out of nothing at it’s best 🙂
Thus, in a endeavor to share with you such beautiful nothings, I will try to post as often as I can some of those lines that I have come across. They will be from the movies I’ve seen, books I’ve read, songs I’ve heard and so on. So here we go 🙂
This one is from the movie called ‘The blind side’ & in particular I am talking about the essay our protagonist was to write to improve his GPA. His essay was inspired by a poem written by Lord Alfred Tennyson.
Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage based on a dumb idea or mistake, but you’re not supposed to question adults, or your coach or your teacher because they make the rules.
Maybe they know best but maybe they don’t. It all depends on who you are and where you come from.
Didn’t at least one of the six hundred
guys think about giving up and joining with the other side?
I mean, Valley of Death that’s pretty salty stuff.
That’s why courage it’s tricky.
Should you always do what others tell you to do? Sometimes you might not even know why you’re doing something.
I mean any fool can have courage.
But honor, that’s the real reason you either do something or you don’t. It’s who you are and maybe who you want to be.
If you die trying for something important then you have both honor and courage and that’s pretty good.
I think that’s what the writer was saying. That you should hope for courage and try for honor and maybe even pray that the people telling you what to do have some, too.
