The Speech That Sends Shivers Down My Spine

The Speech That Sends Shivers Down My Spine

I love these words spoken by a fictional captain in Babylon 5. This poor sod knows he will die by the time his son is twenty (might have got the age wrong!)

From time to time you will make mistakes…

There inevitable…

Sometimes those mistakes will be huge…

What matters is that you learn from them…

There’s nothing wrong with falling down…

As long as you end up just two inches taller when you pick yourself up of the floor…

At times you may end up far away from home…

You may not be sure of where you belong anymore…

But home is always there…

Because home is not a place…

It’s wherever your passion takes you…

As you continue along your path…

You will lose some friends…

And gain some new ones…

The process is a painful one…

But often necessary…

They will change…

And you will change…

Because life is change…

From time to time…

They must find their own way…

And that way might not be yours…

Enjoy them for what they are…and what they were…

And remember things do work out…

Oh we suffer, we have hard times, we lose loved ones…

The road is never easy, it was never meant to be easy…

But in the long run, if you stay true to what you believe…things do work out…

Always be willing to fight for what you believe in…

It doesn’t matter if a thousand people agree with you or none…

Which brings me to the first bit of advice my father gave me…

Never start a fight…

But always finish it…
