“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.”

"The movie was fantastic. As someone afflicted (in a good way) with wanderlust and constant daydreaming, this film really resonated with me. I don't normally cry in movies but I did in this one. The film seemed to call out to my inmost hopes and dreams, especially the ones concerning adventure, travel, and making a difference. If you are completely content with your life and don't want anything to change then this movie is not for you (or perhaps it is). Anyways, concerning the motto, I think it is a good description of what life ought to be. Far too often we find ourselves just going through the motions, existing but not living. As Jack London once wrote, "the function of man is to live, not to exist." Perhaps we should all keep this in mind, remembering that we are only temporary beings, but also ones that can leave an everlasting impact. Live, love, and laugh while you can. Don't put off fulfilling your dreams until later because no future moment is assured." - Sehnsucht
