CLOUD ATLAS BY DAVID MITCHELL

I remember the afternoon that I first watched this movie, it was amazing how one movie could bring together so many thoughts, feelings and situations that I had faced in life. I say faced as in the sense that often we hide those innermost feelings that we experience, often thinking that we might somehow face ridicule to fully express ourselves.

Literally that Sunday I was glued to the screen as I went on a trip of déjà vu. Immediately, I wanted to share those feelings and moments with the person who is the object of my affection, knowing that he too would have felt exactly what I had during the movie.

This movie is full of insight, amazing expressions and quotes by David Mitchell, so I wanted to share a few of my favourite ones here:

“Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
.
 “I believe there is another world waiting for us. A better world. And I'll be waiting for you there.”
.
 “Unlimited power in the hands of limited people always leads to cruelty.”
.
 “In an individual, selfishness uglifies the soul; for the human species, selfishness is extinction.”
.
 “...there ain't no journey what don't change you some.”
.
“Truth is singular. Its 'versions' are mistruths.”
