Do you believe in the magic of books? I definitely do!
It has been a long break since I posted the last blog post because I had my exams (Yes, 1st Sem, Masters :D). But, as you can see, I cannot stay away from you guys for so long, so, here I am again back and how 😉 This is the 3rd and final day of this quotes challenge tag, so without much ado, read my 3rd fav quote –
This quote defines me as a person – I read, I travel and I develop myself (I write too). Nothing else can define me better than this. It might only be 3 lines but this is the most apt quote for my personality.
Today, I am not nominating anybody rather, I am making it open for you guys to take this challenge and share your 3 favorite quotes 🙂 ❤
Will Smith says these inspiring lines in an interview!
I am a big fan of celebrity interviews. In my free time, apart from reading books, I have this habit of watching the interviews of my favorite celebrities. Hence, one such interview is this – Will Smith & his family’s interview with Oprah! I have never seen such an inspiring motivational speaker like Will Smith. I always learn something new, something more motivating, whenever I watch his interviews. He is someone who has a lot to share. His experiences in life has made him such a great person that all of his words are so precious. He is definitely the one for me, whom I look up to. Especially, when I am in distress/struggling to stay positive/ facing hard times, I search for his interviews. Therefore, one day, when my morale was completely annihilated, I watched this interview of his and found these inspiring lines. Will says, “Greatness lives on the edge of destruction” (in regard to his son’s hard training for his movie, Karate Kid) and he explains how you become strong when you survive those hard times. After watching this interview of his, I couldn’t keep these lines off my mind. If today I have a better, positive outlook towards life then I would give a part of credit to him!
Will utters this phrase at 38:00 secs, you can skip directly to this quote or if you like, you can watch the whole interview (it’s about family, relationships and the making of the movie). You can watch it here
