How I See It

THROUGH THEIR WORDS


So,

"Ye come seekin' adventure with salty old pirates, eh? Sure you've come to the proper place." — Pirates of the Caribbean (Disneyland)

"'Cause this here's the wiiiildest ride in the wilderness!" — Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (Disneyland)

"We can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist and who we exclude. We've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include." — Père Henri (Chocolat)

"We must be the change we wish to see in the world." — Gandhi

and

"Come at it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page." — Stephen King (On Writing)

Yet,

"None of us can vow to be perfect. In the end, all we can do is promise to love each other with everything we've got because love's the best thing we do." - Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother)

And,

"After the best stories, I think, [people] love someone or something maybe just a little bit more." — Chris Jones

You see,

"Fantasy and reality often overlap." — Walt Disney

and

"Sometimes, magic is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect." — Teller (of Penn & Teller)

"There are things worth believing in; there are things worth being passionate about; and so our action must not be a reaction but a creation ... let those ideas be noble, let them be poetic and let them be beautiful." — Imaginary Foundation

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." ― Marcel Proust

So,

"Follow your bliss.... and doors will open for you where there weren't ever doors before." — Joseph Campbell

Now,

"Watch, learn, and don't eat my cookie." - Phoebe (Friends)

"It is far better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." — Unknown

"Music is love in search of the words." — Hey Ocean! (If I Were a Ship)

and

"There has never been a sadness that can't be cured by breakfast food." - Ron Swanson (Parks and Recreation)

Finally,

"We have this myth of identity — that who we are is the summation of a lot of choices we made in the past. That we’ve got a map for the life we’re supposed to lead, and we’ve got to stick to it. But that’s assuming that we’re all static beings, and that’s not how people work at all." - Mike Iamele

"When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world -- try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life; life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact. And that is: everything around you, that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again." — Steve Jobs (PBS documentary 'Steve Jobs: One Last Thing')

One last thing:

“Close your eyes. Does anything feel weird? Because that’s what this is; feeling weird is how you know you’re still here. When was the last time you ate? Because all a human needs is food, water, and rest. You’ve got to remind yourself: you’re just 160 pounds of goo in the middle of a very big universe. So whatever’s bumming you out right now, just know that it will fade. Every problem feels big in the moment, but Gordon, you know better. So focus on just being being. And try to look up from your computer every once in a while.” - Gordon Clark (Halt and Catch Fire)
