Any Given Sunday - Peace by Inches - Pacino
A friend told me to watch Any Given Sunday - Peace by Inches - Pacino this morning.
Here are my thoughts on this clip:
Life isn't perfect, but a player [either a person who is playing the game of life selfishly or altruistically] always needs to move forward. No matter what is being thrown at him/her, a player needs to suck it up and deal with the adversities- for the benefit of the team in order to save him/herself. Although what he/she is able to accomplish may not seem like much, 'inch by inch' the efforts of the entire team will bring about a wondrous outcome. But only with optimism, trust, loyalty, faith but especially a person's willingness to "sacrifice himself for [his/her] team because [s/he] knows [someone is] going to do the same for [him/her]" will that happen. Like the Asian proverb about how although an individual chopstick is easy to break, a bundle of chopsticks together makes it difficult for any force to break it. A team's strength and the sturdiness of its backbone are solely based on the resolved of its members to "heal as a team or die as individuals."
It's a depressing thought that there are people out there who come to a point in their life where they feel so hopeless and lost because they've "pissed away all [their] money... chased off anyone who ever loved [them and come to the point where they] can't even stand that face [they] see in the mirror. I wouldn't wish this fate even on my enemy. I really hope none of the people I love will ever experience such miseries.
Indeed the margin of error in life is really small. Sad huh?
What a great clip. Some powerful lines were said in that clip will stay with me for a long time.
What are your thoughts?
