7+1 Citações Com As Quais Te Identificas (Ou Não?)

Há frases que têm voz própria. E, mesmo sem querer, podemos identificar-nos com a mensagem que nos transmitem. Umas sussurram-nos ao ouvido coisas que gostamos de ouvir, outras alertam-nos para algum ensinamento sábio que nos estava a escapar. 

Aqui ficam algumas de que gosto, retiradas de livros, músicas e filmes. Deixo-vos encarregues de identificar qual a música, livro ou filme onde fui buscar cada uma! Basta deixares um comentário no final com a lista.


Músicas


1. If you never know truth, then you never know love.
Conheces a verdade sobre aqueles que te são mais queridos? As suas qualidades e defeitos, tal e qual como são e não como gostavas que fossem? É que se não conheces, a pergunta é outra - será que são assim tão importantes para ti?

2. Could you close everyday without the glory and fame?

O que é que te faz saltar da cama? Onde vais buscar a motivação para fazeres aquilo que fazes no teu dia-a-dia? Continuarias a fazer tudo exatamente da mesma forma, se não recebesses o mínimo crédito e reconhecimento por tal? 

3. Can't catch tomorrow, good shoes won't save you this time

Nem as maiores reflexões te vão permitir alterar o passado, nem bons sapatos te permitem apanhar o amanhã. Por isso aperta bem os atacadores e ocupa-te com aquilo que a vida tem para te oferecer - hoje.

4. You can't start a fire without a spark

Não esperes ser bom em alguma coisa, se não estiveres disposto a investir tempo nela e a abdicar de outras. Não esperes que a rapariga ou rapaz dos teus sonhos venha falar contigo sobre aquilo que sentes por ele/ela. As fogueiras não se acendem por pensarmos muito sobre elas. Acender a faísca é da nossa inteira responsabilidade.



Filmes


5. "It's like in the great stories, Mr. (...) . The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. (...), I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. Because they were holding on to something... There's some good in this world, Mr. (...). And it's worth fighting for." 

Acredita que há algo de bom por que lutar, agarra-te a isso com todas as tuas forças, e a história da tua vida será como aquelas que realmente importam.

6. You know, I look at you. I watch you. You're not a drunk. That's, that's real control. Control is power. That's power.

Controlas o teu apetite - consegues partilhar a tua comida com os outros. Controlas o desejo de gastar dinheiro - tens a capacidade de poupá-lo para o que importa. Controlo não só significa poder, como poder para fazer o bem.


Livros

7. "In our days," continued Véra - mentioning 'our days' as people of limited intelligence are fond of doing, imagining that they have discovered and appraised the peculiarities of 'our days' and that human characteristics change with the times - ...
E esta? Deixa-nos a pensar duas vezes antes de escrever o que quer que seja sobre "os dias de hoje" - pode ser que não saibamos tanto sobre eles como pensamos.



Escolha do Khurram (+1)


"Half the population's just waitin to see me fail / Yeah right, you're better off trying to freeze hell" 

The world will always have its naysayers and doubters. In your life, you’ve probably come across people who tell you that you can’t do something because you’re not smart, pretty/handsome, adventurous, or INSERT OTHER CHARACTERISTIC HERE, and they are waiting to see you prove them correct. Prove the naysayers and doubters wrong, use their negativity as fuel to light your fire. Fight on and succeed.

7+1 Quotes You Identify With (Or Don't You?)

There are sentences with a voice of their own. And even if we don't want to, we might end up identifying ourselves with the message that's being transmitted. Some will whisper in our ears things we like to hear, others will warn us about some wise teaching we were missing.

Here are some sentences I like, taken from some songs, books and movies. I leave you in charge of identifying the song, movie or book which I took the sentence from! Just leave a comment in the end.


Songs


1. If you never know truth, then you never know love.
Do you know the truth about those who are dearest to you? Their qualities and defects, just as they are and not the way you would like them to be? Because if you don't, the question to make is a different one - are they that important to you?

2. Could you close everyday without the glory and fame?

What is it that incites you to jump off the bed every morning? Where do you get the motivation to do everything you do in your everyday life? Would you still do it the same way, in case no credit and recognition were given to you for such?

3. Can't catch tomorrow, good shoes won't save you this time

Neither the greatest considerations will allow you to change the past, nor will good shoes allow you to catch tomorrow. Therefore, tie your shoelaces properly and occupy with what life has to offer you - today.

4. You can't start a fire without a spark
Don't expect to excel at something, if you are not willing to invest time in it and having to give up others. Don't expect the boy or girl of your dreams to come talk to you about how you feel for him/her. Fires won't start if we just think about them. Litting up a spark is our own and entire responsibility.

Movies


5. "It's like in the great stories, Mr. (...) . The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. (...), I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. Because they were holding on to something... There's some good in this world, Mr. (...). And it's worth fighting for." 

Believe there's something really good worth fighting for, hold on to that with all your strength, and the story of your life will be such as the ones that really matter.

6. You know, I look at you. I watch you. You're not a drunk. That's, that's real control. Control is power. That's power.
You control your appetite - you can share your food with other. You control the wish of spending money - you have the ability to save it for what really matters. Control does not only mean power, as the to do GOOD.

Books

7. "In our days," continued Véra - mentioning 'our days' as people of limited intelligence are fond of doing, imagining that they have discovered and appraised the peculiarities of 'our days' and that human characteristics change with the times - ...
How about this one? We should think twice before writing whatever be it about "our days" - we might not know so much about them as we think we do.

  1. Não concordo totalmente com o que está na 3. OK que não podemos alterar o passado, e que devemos aproveitar e viver o presente, mas,..." nem bons sapatos te permitem apanhar o amanhâ" é, em minha opinião, incorrecto, pois apesar de não conhecermos o dia de amanhã, podemos planeá-lo e , de certa forma, prevenir certas situações.
    Bom post e que de certeza será alvo de diferentes comentários !

    1. A questão é que, por mais que planeemos o dia de amanhã, raramente corre tudo como desejado. Concordo com a tua ideia de que não devemos deixar de pensar sobre o futuro. Mas o que a frase a mim me transmite é que há sempre um pedaço de incerteza associado com o dia seguinte que não podemos controlar, e esse nunca apanhamos.

  3. Aqui fica a minha frase/ poema de William Ernest, que inspirou um dos grandes Homens deste seculo, retratado num grande filme, e que vale a pena ver, reparar, olhar e reflectir :-)

    "Do avesso desta noite que me encobre,
    Preta como a cova, do começo ao fim,
    Eu agradeço a quaisquer deuses que existam,
    Pela minha alma inconquistável.

    Na garra cruel desta circunstância,
    Pack Invictus - DVD + Blu-Ray + Cópia Digital
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVi4k44A1Yo
    Não estremeci, nem gritei em voz alta.
    Sob a pancada do acaso,
    Minha cabeça está ensanguentada, mas não curvada.

    Além deste lugar de ira e lágrimas
    Avulta apenas o horror das sombras.
    E apesar da ameaça dos anos,
    Encontra-me, e me encontrará destemido.

    Não importa quão estreito o portal,
    Quão carregada de punições a lista,
    Sou o mestre do meu destino:
    Sou o capitão da minha alma."

    1. Muito interessante! De que homem falas, quando dizes que foi inspirado pelo poema?
