Quoting Peaceful Warrior

Wonderful quotes from the film Peaceful Warrior:

My favs:

"There are no ordinary moments." Dan


Socrates: Change...
Dan Millman: Know that nothing stays the same.

and

Socrates: Death isn't sad. The sad thing is: most people don't live at all.

and (hehe) for an unschooling feel

Socrates: Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what's good for you. They don't want you to find your own answers, they want you to believe theirs.
Dan Millman: Let me guess, and you want me to believe yours.
Socrates: No, I want you to stop gathering information from the outside and start gathering it from the inside.


And others:

Socrates: Everything has a purpose, even this, and it's up to you to find it.


Socrates: A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does


Socrates: I call myself a Peaceful Warrior... because the battles we fight are on the inside


Socrates: This moment is the only thing that matters.


Socrates: Where are you?
Dan Millman: Here.
Socrates: What time is it?
Dan Millman: Now.
Socrates: What are you?
Dan Millman: This moment.


Joy: [to Dan, touching his chest] I don't think your leg was the only thing that got broken.


Dan Millman: The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination


Dan Millman: The ones who are hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most.


Socrates: Those who are the hardest to love, need it the most


Socrates: There is only the journey


Socrates: A warrior is not about perfection or victory or invulnerability. He's about absolute vulnerability.


Socrates: There is no starting or stopping - only doing.


Socrates: It's the journey, not the destination.


Socrates: There's no greater purpose than service to others.



Socrates: People are not their thoughts, they think they are, and it brings them all kinds of sadness.


Dan Millman:Life has just three rules?
Socrates: And you already know them...
Dan Millman: Paradox, humour, and change.
Socrates: Paradox...
Dan Millman: Life is a mystery. Don't waste time trying to figure it out.
Socrates: Humour...
Dan Millman: Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure.
Socrates: Change...
Dan Millman: Know that nothing stays the same.


Dan Millman: I took for granted what I could do. I was sloppy with my life; I'm scared but I feel like I got rid of all the old stuff and it was the right thing to do.

Ahhh, since I plaster my inside kitchen cabinet doors with quotes, I feel the need to copy them all.
Great, another thing to do on my list. Just kidding.

Nicolas and I read this book about ten years or so ago and then saw the movie last year, thinking it couldn't live up to the book - but it did. It's wonderful to have quotes pulled out. thanks!
