Day 29. “Even the smallest person can change the world”- Roger Rabbit. Or, “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future” – Galadriel in Lord of the rings. Some people think they can’t change the world, but they are wrong. We are in this together. We should think about climate change. Saving humankind is the main priority. You can change it by doing little things. Walk instead of taking the car. Travel to places where you can get without a plane. Don’t litter in nature. Recycle all the things you can. You can also teach your kids good manners. Try to think positive because negative thinking only makes you feel miserable. Be open-minded and think about your attitude. It begins with you. Just because something has always been done in a certain way doesn’t mean you can’t change it. That’s how I am changing the world.
If you don’t think about the problems, nothing will ever change. If people only think about themselves, the future will be dark for the next generation. Nature is not the only one that should be saved. You should also try to enlighten people about other issues in the world. There are many homeless, lonely, poor people, health issues and so on. One person can’t save the world by themselves. But if we work together, we can make a difference. If we don’t do anything, nothing will change. If I repeated myself in this post, it doesn’t matter. Important things should be repeated.
A song that gives me feels the most is ‘Man in the Mirror’ by Michael Jackson. He cared for the environments and things that were wrong in the world. You should listen to the words because it’s all so true. The lyrics video is below.
Day 22. There are so many good quotes out there, so it isn’t easy to know what the favourite one could be. Being a big fan of the Lord of the Rings movies, many of the quotes, there are my favourites. The quote(s) I chose is from one of my favourite scenes. What Gandalf says to Frodo when they are in Mordor isn’t only fantastic but so true. JRR Tolkien was a genius.
Frodo: ‘It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill Gollum when he had the chance.’
Gandalf: ‘Pity? It’s a pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play in it, for good or evil, before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.’
Frodo: ‘I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.’
Gandalf: ‘So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides that of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring, in which case you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.
Day 18. I don’t remember the last time I read a book. I’m not much into that. If I read them, it’s either biographies or about subjects like photography. I own some books, but I prefer going to the library. I haven’t been there a while, though, because of covid. I used to read children’s books when I was younger. They were easier to read. I don’t like reading books with small print. I have so much else to do, so I don’t have the time to read them. I rather read magazines and newspapers. I just don’t have the patience to read novels and stories like that. I have the Lord of the rings book, but I have never finished it. I tried to read it twice but failed. It’s too slow for me. When you’ve seen the movies, there is no turnback. I’ve read The Hobbit more than once. I owned the Finnish version and borrowed the English one from the library. That’s as far as I can go. I don’t even listen to audiobooks. It’s just isn’t my thing.
They say reading books develop your imagination. But so does watching movies and TV shows. Also, reading books of facts. I have got a lot of inspiration from moving pictures. I’ve also studied drama. Life experiences develop your imagination as well. There are a lot of ways to read. Books are not the only thing. I’ve read many fan fiction online. Mostly in English. I’ve got a lot of ideas from them to my own fan fiction. Everyone isn’t made to read books. The most important thing is that you read. It doesn’t matter what. It keeps your mind busy, and at the same time, you might learn something new.
