Buoyant & Assured

Sometimes, just one quote says it all and offers encouragement to the soul.

And No Country for Old Men is loaded with such words of wisdom. If I manage to soak in and remember even half of the aphorisms that the story contains, I’ll be able to turn my life around for the better.

“You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.”

“You think when you wake up in the mornin yesterday don’t count. But yesterday is all that does count. What else is there? Your life is made out of the days it’s made out of. Nothing else.”

“It’s a life’s work to see yourself for what you really are and even then you might be wrong. And that is something I don’t want to be wrong about.”

― Cormac McCarthy, No Country For Old Men

  1. Javier Bardem is definitely a reason to go see any movie, imho! 🙂 But with this book v. film, I have to go with the book as my preference, even with Javier loading the scale. To my taste,it is almost impossible for any movie to be better than its book. That’s because no great casting or special effects can equal what my imagination can do with the written word. 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m now following you!

    1. You’re right. Movies rarely do justice to books on which they’re based. As they say, movies just show you the tip of the iceberg!
      But now that I’ve read the book, I’d definitely like to see the movie. Just for fun, you know.

      Thanks for the follow:)
