Wisdom of the Creative Realms: Movies #grogz

It's Day 3 of M. Pax's Realms Faire! Here I'm hosting the Wisdom of the Creative Realms.

Through the ages, the arts have spoken truth and wisdom in a way that resonates far deeper than the words from any textbook can. King Arthur's table was round to encourage equality and open sharing of opinions. From November 10-14, consider my blog to be a round table at which I invite you to sit and share wisdom from the creative arts. Today we're finding bits of wisdom from Movies.


Either in the comments here or at your own blog, share with the round table a quote or piece of wisdom from any movie you've watched during your lifetime. Here's mine:

(The wisdom starts at 13 seconds in)

Because really, if we don't just say "What the heck" every one in a while, what's the point of anything? Sure, sometimes it ends up being a huge mistake, but then we face our consequences (as discussed in yesterday's post) and grow wiser, eh?


Enter my giveaway simply by sharing a wisdom in the comments below. If you post your wisdom at your blog, let me know in the comments and you'll be awarded 5 EXTRA points! Points accumulate until midnight on Friday and winners will be announced the following Monday.

The prizes are:

To honor your great wisdom and the new wisdom to come through all those books you'll read, I'll award 5 beaded owl bookmarks to the people WHO've accumulated the most wisdom points.

2 random winners of eBooks of Shades of Avalon by Carol Oates.

Ben Pryor grew up as an average kid in Camden, Maine, unaware of the supernatural storm brewing in his Celtic blood. However, at nineteen, as the last born in the royal line of beings that once ruled Atlantis, Ben has eagerly embraced his newfound abilities and birthright. In the sequel to Shades of Atlantis, Ben will delve deeper than he ever imagined into the old, magical ways of the Guardians, the secrets of Excalibur, and the truth behind the legend of King Arthur. What exactly did the Council hide beneath the citadel of Camelot? And can it help get Caleb back without putting the world in danger?

2 random winners of eBooks of Legendary by LH Nicole.

Aliana Fagan spent her childhood traveling the world, dreaming of legendary heroes and mythical lands. But after the sudden death of her parents, she hides behind the safety of her camera and her art until a vivid recurring dream compels her to dig into her father's research about Avalon and Camelot. When she is hurled into a magical realm by forces she thought were only the stuff of fairy tales, she finds herself thrown into an adventure she could never have imagined. Nearly everything she thought she knew about Arthurian legend was wrong.

Best words of wisdom I've heard from a movie came from The Usual Suspects - The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

Liz Blocker said...

Oh, young Tom Cruise. How could you not love that clip??? :)

There are WAY too many quotes to list, so I'll just go with one from Gandalf today - seems appropriate for the Realms Faire! “Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.”

WTF seems like good advice to put to use on most days. :)

And I must get myself over to the Realms Faire!

My favorite is from Galaxy Quest: Never give up. Never surrender.

That is a great quote, words to live by. One of my favorites is from Braveheart: All men die, not every man truly lives.

John Keating: “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love—these are what we stay alive for.”
