“To see the world, things dangerous to come to,
to see behind walls, draw closer,
to find each other, and to feel.
That is the purpose of life.”
– James Thurber
Today’s quote is taken from the film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It was initially a short story by James Thurber (hence the attribution.) If you haven’t seen the movie yet, go rent it, buy it, Netflix it, whatever… but see it AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
It is extraordinary, in every respect. The visuals, the score, the plot, the imagery, the themes, the casting, the performances. Oh. My. Goodness. It is amazing.
I have nothing further, your honour. See the film, soak it up, and enjoy the story.
