The three quotes and a movie I find meaningful. The first quote is by Jalal ad-Deen Muhammad Rumi. The second one is by Shams Tabrizi, and the third one is by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. And the last but not the least will be the movie Kung Fu Panda
Jalal ad-Deen Muhammad Rumi:
If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?
I personally relate to this one because I get agitated easily by any obstacle my life throws in my direction, instead of looking at it in a more positive way, and growing from the experience, I just become anxious. And as the poet said “If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished.” I don’t know the actual meaning behind this one but I take it as it is written and if I am worried about the hardships I’ll get to experience in this life, how else will I grow if not from them.
It is pointless trying to know where the way leads. Think only about your first step, the rest will come.For this one I find it meaningful and relatable because I get frightened just by thinking about the process I have to go through to achieve what I want, thus I give up before even taking a step towards the goal. And if I start to believe in what the poet says and follow what the quote says, then I’ll be able to test my potential and take a step towards the unknown and soar high.
Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart I lost my father when I was around 10 years, and I have some memories with him which I remember vividly, and others vaguely. When I see my peers talking about their fathers, my mind goes to my father’s memories, I think and be grateful for spending time with him, however, it becomes painful to think that I won’t be able to see him and spend time when him anymore, even if I really want to spend time with him, and that is heartbreaking. So yes, the memories really warm you up from inside and can also tear you apart.
Here's about Kung Fu Panda from it's website
Prepare for awesomeness with this delightful DreamWorks Animation film. Jack Black is the voice of Po, a noodle-slurping dreamer who must embrace his true self-fuzzy flaws and all-in order to become the real Dragon Warrior. Filled with high-kicking humor, groundbreaking animation, and an all-star cast including Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan and Dustin Hoffman.
I want to talk about “Kung Fu Panda”, it’s an animated movie which was directed by Mark Osborne and John Stevenson. Although it is an animated I feel like it has great meaning and a good theme to it, the character development is just splendid. Master Oogway picking Po as dragon warrior, Master Shifu and furious five being confused about the selection, And Po is just stressed out. But as the story goes on and the Po’s father talks about how there’s no secret ingredient to his famous secret ingredient soup, it’s just a believe that the soup is special. Then Po opens the dragon scroll and looks at the reflection of himself in it, and realizes that he is the one who makes him special. And then he defeats Tai Lung, he saves everyone and becomes the dragon warrior. I find this movie meaningful because you’re the secret ingredient to make anything special.
