42 The True Story of an American Legend – Jackie Robinson

“Maybe tomorrow we’ll all wear ‘42’—that way they won’t tell us apart.”…<3

-Pee Wee Reese

Here’s one of many great scenes in this film. : ) This must see movie is full of passion and inspiration. It really hit home for me just how incredible Mr. Jackie Robinson was and remains today. Also, I just learned that April 15th is the day that all major league baseball players wear the number ‘42’ to commemorate Jackie Robinson’s first game played in Major League Baseball.

Here’s a great background clip to check out about the Dodgers and Robinson’s legacy

“Stories are the thing that the universe is made of as a poet said…And people are in fact stories that as each day of your life passes by another page is turned—you are a story worth telling…”   ❤

-Jerry Spinelli

I love these words by Mr. Spinelli… : )

People become really quite remarkable...

“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”

Every once in a while amid all the randomness…

Every once in a while amid all the randomness...

From the movie, “The Switch,” a film that didn’t necessarily receive a lot of attention but stuck with me…

Here’s the line that resonated for me…

“Every once in a while amid all the randomness something unexpected happens and it pushes us all forward…And the truth is, what I’m starting to think…what I’m starting to feel…is that maybe, the human race…isn’t a race at all.”

-The Switch (2010)

If you your not living on the edge…

This quote was shared with me by a really good college buddy…

“If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space.”

I thought of this quote this morning maybe because I’m in the middle of making a decision. Anyhow, I couldn’t quite remember how it went so first remembered it as….

“If you’re not having fun, you’re taking up too much space.”

And that’s when I thought of this clip… : )

“Writing, to me…

“Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”
