Simple Truth

Just a two quotes from a movie. Simplicity and yet not.

"Why do we fall?"
"So we can learn to pick ourselves up."

"It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me."

Yes, but who you are underneath is the desciding factor in what you choose to do. Now my head hurts.

Yeah, they saved the franchise with that one - got it kind of right.

I've said this before, but I think the only true definition of self is a moral one - your actions. How you like to be probed and prodded and what you do to earn your paycheque is incidental window dressing.

Yes, very good quotes indeed. We do fall so that we can pick ourselves back up, thats the part you learn the most from. And thats another part in what defines you.

A situation happens, now how do you react afterwards, what do you do? thats what defines one.

WE fall because we can! WE fall because we must! How WE handle it is how we are defined!

Lianna - Very true. Or is it maybe the other way around to...that our actions help define who we are underneath too? my head is hurting too.

sillyperv - Actions speak louder than words, I guess. And your morals and beliefs are certainly a huge part of that.

Wahine - *soft smile* I'm glad you think so...I thought it was too. Kinda fit, you know?

Dasher - Yep, when you get back up and keep fighting you learn a lot about yourself, don't you? You learn the true extent of your convictions and strengths.

luv2expl - You can play things safe, hold back, never risk anything. And you'll never fall. But you'll never learn anything or have any fun. Thank you.

Batman Begins....Or at least thats what I remember those lines from. My personal favorite quote is "What we do in life echos in eternity" but those quotes are good ones to live by.

Its not who I am underneath. Its who's over my face riding it like its a bucking bronco that matters..

I am not dead yet

Night - Haha...yep. I thought that you might pick up what movie it was from. Surprised no one else has. The eternity quote is a good one too...just that those two above echoed deeper for the events in my life right now.

Bard - *shaking head* Bard, bard, bard...what are we going to do with you?
