We need to do this especially now with the corona virus pandemic. We need to see that the future things will be better and that this isn’t the end of all things. Sometimes it may seem like this is all that there is but it’s not. So we must hold onto hope and we must look forward to tomorrow and do whatever we can to make it better than today.
I love this quote and I know it’s not the same as the plaque that I have hanging in the bathroom but it’s similar enough. My plaque states “Hope is the anchor to the Soul” and that’s why I chose this quote from George. I love how he uses Hope, Love, Time and Life. Hope I feel is definitely the anchor the heart of everything and not to discount love because love is was drives hope. Time is very much like the ocean where it can seem endless and big but also can be cut off abruptly. Life is most definitely a trip that we’re all on and that we need to appreciate that trip for all the places that it takes us, what it has us experience and what we see. Appreciate your life and your trip because sometimes the trip can end too soon.
I’m not sure if George was the first person to state this quote but I have for sure heard it before. I remember hearing it in the movie, “Hitch” spoken from Hitch played by Will Smith. For whomever did state this it is profound and beautiful and it reminds us to appreciate life in both the breaths you take and the ones that take your breath away.
