Elijah Wood Once Said…

Elijah Wood was born on January 28, 1981. Elijah is an actor, voice actor, and producer. Many know him as playing Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy but I also enjoyed him in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

So much time is wasted on trying to be better than others. – Elijah Wood

I think people should try to be unique instead of being like others or trying to make sure you’re better than someone else. Not everything in the world has to be a competition and it isn’t always about winning. Part of losing is a lesson in and of itself and usually better lessons in the long run. I’m not saying one shouldn’t be inspired by other people because I have plenty of people in my life that I give credit for inspiring me and no I don’t push myself to be better than they are… would I like to be in a similar league as they are sure.

To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hard quest worth making to find a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be. – Elijah Wood

I think the only way I can think of ‘falling in love’ as being easy is that it seems to sneak up on us and happen quickly. It’s fairly effortless but maintaining that love is a lot of hard work. Many love the feeling of ‘falling in love’ and so they seek after that feeling when that feeling starts to subside. But there really is so much more to being in love and loving someone than that initial spark. I don’t think the spark is love but more of an infatuation or lust. It is through the steady presence that we should be seeking instead because it is those people that are in your lives that help with stability and help you in your life.

I think being different, going against the grain of society is the greatest thing in the world. – Elijah Wood

There is definitely more to say about the spirited individuals that are unpredictable and make you think. Many are happy to be followers in society and don’t necessarily think outside the box when it comes to life. I think that you get more possibilities when you do though. Which is why I tend to think of alternate routes, scenic routes so I can get to know where I am more and get to see things that others may miss along the way. Going against the grain isn’t always a bad thing to do.
