Max Vandenburg: (presenting Liesel with a blank book of pages) Write. In my religion we're taught that every living thing, every leaf, every bird, is only alive because it contains the secret word for life. That's the only difference between us and a lump of clay. A word. Words are life, Liesel.
I just watched this movie last week and loved it! This quote is so lovely, I just had to share. Words are so very powerful. And yes! They are life. They speak you. What I mean is, they speak what's inside you. Who you truly are. Or, at least, they can. Words have the power to create or destroy. Just a few letters strung together, but oh what an impact they can make!
(Micah at In Sunshine and Shadows was hosting this link up last year. I joined in a few times and then her life got really busy and she's pretty well not blogging much at all anymore. So I'm hoping she won't mind if I continue! I was reminded of it after posting that You've Got Mail quote last week. Thought it'd be fun to post more. I love movies. :)
