Two days before birthday thoughts
“No emotion, any more than a wave, can long retain its own individual form.” — Henry Ward Beecher
Beecher has been one of the abolitionists that I frequently think about. This quote means a lot to me. I first found out about it not too long before my birthday when I was a teenager. It is the quote right before the movie The Air I Breathe.
The movie is based around characters that represent key human emotions.
This is one of the first quotes in the movie: “Happiness : I always wondered, when a butterfly leaves the safety of its cocoon, does it realize how beautiful it has become?” Forest Whitaker is such a good actor.
