English is an explicit language compared to Japanese, Chinese, and other Asian languages I suppose. That’s why some words spoken in English, people think it’s wise, but in other languages, it can be awkward. Some words we don’t use in our Asian languages, but it works in English.

I love to learn those wise words from English movies. It makes me think from a totally different perspective (western view). I love watching English movies but I realized that I haven’t been able to keep those good words in my head after the movies. It has always been like watching a fireworks – we enjoy then but forget later.

So I decided to write down the wise quotes that I like from every movie I watch from now on, and take picture and share with you at here. 😉
