School of Life.

Depressing? Yeah. True? Probably. I like this short film. A lot. Watch it twice. 


Also, I came across this quote that I really like by William James. I think I like quotes and short films for the same reasons. They are like little bursts of insight that pertain to the school of life. 
 "Never suffer an exception to occur till the new habit is securely rooted in your life...Seize every first possible opportunity to act on every resolution you make...Keep the faculty of effort alive in you by a little gratuitous exercise every day. If he keeps faithfully busy each hour of the working-day, he may safely leave the final result to itself. He can, with perfect certainty, count on waking up some fine morning to find himself one of the competent ones of his generation."  
Probably easier said than done, but still inspiring.

  2. I watched it twice. It's so sad. But it made me think. I like that.
