Mal: What are you doing here?
Ariadne: My name is…
Mal: I know who you are. What are you doing here?
Ariadne: I’m just trying to understand…
Mal: How could you understand? Do you know what it is to be a lover? To be half of a whole?
Mal: I’ll tell you a riddle. You’re waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you; but you don’t know for sure. But it doesn’t matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?
Cobb: Because you’ll be together.
Watched I Am Sam, starring Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Dakota Fanning, and heard this rendition of the Beatle’s Blackbird. ♥ It’s a great movie with great performances from all the actors, btw. I loved it! Definitely a tearjerker. Thanks for making me cry, boyfriend. P.S. I heard you singing (:
Blackbird singing in the dead of night. Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise.
I Am Sam [Blackbird]
Mr. Turner: Isn’t it true that deep down inside, very deep inside…you know you need much more than your daddy can give you?
Lucy: All you need is love.

This is my favorite scene from I am Sam. On this excerpt, you will see that not all successful people are happy. I also see here that everyone of us has a psychological order or two. Though we function well deep down we are suffering. Some people contain themselves within their selves. Most people think that they are less than who they are because they are incapable. I believe we think less than of who we are because we dont appreciate what we are. We think we are incapable because we don’t capitalize on our own abilities. We think we are weak because we don’t believe in our own strengths.
Ponder on this: Don’t you think it is time for us to stop obsessionally yearn for what we don’t have and focus on what we currently have?
