I had the pleasure of going to the cinema a few nights ago to see the new Tom Hanks/Halle Berry mindbender of a film that is coincidentally also based on a book – Cloud Atlas. There were many great lines in the film — many quotes to be repeated, many of which have stuck with me even days after seeing the film.
My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?
Time is what stops history happening at once; time is the speed at which the past disappears.
and my personal favorite:
Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present…and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.
Think about that.
