3 Life Wisdom Quotes from “Ramona and Beezus” (2010)
I love movies. I love learning life wisdom from movies. In previous post, I introduced some wise quotes from “You Again”. Today, I want to share the wisdom in the movie – “Ramona and Beezuz” (2010) 🙂
Let’s take a look at the official trailer.
Ramona and Beezus (2010)
Adapted from Beverly Cleary’s perennially popular book series, Ramona and Beezus stars newcomer Joey King as Ramona Quimby, a grade-schooler with a big imagination. So big, in fact, that she often clashes with her no-nonsense teacher (Sandra Oh). When Ramona’s upbeat dad (John Corbett) loses his job, the family — including her teenage sister, Beezus (Selena Gomez), and their practical-minded mother (Bridget Moynahan) — must make major adjustments, like dad learning how to run the house. Ramona dreams up various plans to make money so that she can save their house, but because everybody in the family seems too preoccupied to help her with her own worries, she turns to the one person who always has time for her, Aunt Bea (Ginnifer Goodwin). But even Aunt Bea is distracted these days because her ex-boyfriend — and Quimby family next-door neighbor — Hobart (Josh Duhamel) keeps trying to win Bea back.
3 Life Wisdom from Ramona and Beezus
#1 No matter how old I get, I’ll always be younger.
When Ramona was upset because everybody around her thinks her as a nuisance, aunt Bea was trying to cheer her up and told her “No matter how old I get, I’ll always be younger.”
Sometimes we say to ourselves “I’m old, I can’t do that.” or “I’m a grown up. I won’t do that.” However, sometimes we really need to get young and believe we can save the world. Don’t be trapped by the age, we’d never get old as long as we stay young. 🙂
#2 He (Ramona’s dad) could have been an artist when he was younger, but he decided to be my dad.
In my life, many people have become somebody else than they wanted to for me. My parents, my family, my teachers, my best friends, even my dog. We don’t take things for granted. Things are there because somebody made it happen.
Try to talk to people around you. Ask what they wanted to become before you met them. You will be surprised that many people just didn’t expect that their lives would have turned out to be like this. and if they did, you wouldn’t have been able to meet them.
Appreciate everything in your life. They are all made by somebody’s effort, just for you.
#3 I hope you have nine lives. And maybe tomorrow, you can wake up as somebody else’s cat, start a new life.
When Ramona and Beezus found their old cat dead, they buried it and said “I hope you have nine lives. And maybe tomorrow, you can wake up as somebody else’s cat, start a new life.”
Life is tough. Often we wish we could just walk away and shut ourselves down from the world. That’s a good idea but not the solution. Life is a battle. Everyday we fall down, and stand up against for another dawn.
No matter what life brings in, remember to tell yourself that “You have nine lives. Tomorrow you can wake up as somebody else’s cat, start a new life.” 🙂
