Inspirational Observations

Recommended Posts

Oftentimes in my writings and posts on these forums, I make references to popular culture (pop culture) genres such as books, movies, songs, television shows and comic books (er, excuse me, graphic novels, ahem).  The reason for this is that I often find great insights, and comments about life that, once heard, seem so obvious, yet were unconsidered before hearing them. At least, unconsidered by me, but maybe I'm just dense. :)

So, I'm wondering if others also find such meaningful ideas in similar venues. If so, please share.

To start, this clip, from the Joss Whedon series 'Firefly' says so much to me.

and then

There's an old black character from a movie called THE OX BOW INCIDENT that sings that exact sentiment.  It's an old negro spiritual called Lonesome Valley.

“Flower, bear fruit and die; be born, grow up, and die. Still the wind blows, the rain falls, the waterwheel goes round. Lifetimes come and go in turn.”

Podo
You can choose a ready guide
In some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice
 
You can choose from phantom fears
And kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose free will
 
- "Free Will", Rush, 1980
