Day 4: To Live For The Future by thenorthernlights14 Day 4: To Live For The Future by thenorthernlights14
Edit:
GUYS THIS IS NOT A QUOTE ABOUT SUPERMAN! DON'T GET ANTS IN YOUR PANTS. I WILL NO LONGER REPLY TO SUPERMAN-RELATED COMMENTS UNLESS I FIND IT.... CRUCIAL?


To move on
Humans have feelings. Whether you're a 5-year-old kid or an elite in the army... no matter how well you can hide it, only you can know how you exactly feel.
It's easy to fall down.
But it's easy to never get back up.
It's easy to get hurt.
But it's easy to never move forward.

Again, there is no RIGHT or WRONG. However, what do you live for?

Do you live in vengeance, revenge, or hope and happiness for a moment from your past?
Or do you live looking for a brighter future and look forwards to a new tomorrow?


Humans are such funny creatures. We make this universal thing up called 'religion' and wastes millions of lives over it. We kill the environment around us to make life easier. Our actions create monstrous diseases and we find our own cure to it. We work so we can live, but is working really living?



Some will give up halfway through life and will never know what they'll miss.
But some will stand up and will meet a day where they can smile once more.




My Story
Teenagers.
It feels like the entire world is against you and sometimes the best things to let go is by committing suicide. Once someone dies the entire world focuses their attention on them.
Don't do that. It's stupid. Out of the trillions of zygotes that could've formed (sci geek here heh), YOU made it. Even if you think you're unlucky, you being alive in front of your computer reading this, makes you extremely lucky. Don't ever forget that.

I'd drag through every singly morning.
I had Gym the next day. That gave me something to hope for so I'd go on for another 24 hours.
Mom bought sushi for tomorrow's lunch so that's another day.
There was a really exciting project I could do which is another day.
And another day.
And another day.




I hated living.




But maybe just before you end your life, just maybe you can tell yourself that one day, there will be a good day and you will be able to smile.
Miracle is just another word for effort.


The people who stand back up without hesitation like you and me are truly the ones that are brave.
The give up halfway fought a very hard battle, but they are not strong. They gave up.
It's never the answer.
Live on. It's the best you can do.

I think this is great :) I understand what you mean and I agree! Superheroes kinda bother me sometimes: "OMG he saved a thousand people from crashing with a burning airplane! And he's only indestructible with superhuman strength, the ability to fly and x-ray vision!!" I'd love to save the world every single day if I had those abilities, too. :/

I understand that discussing Superman's not your biggest point, but I think that's a good discussion topic as well as what-are brave and strong people in general. :D

Superman is selfless. He gives what he can, where and when he can. He rises out of bed every morning, knowing fully well that -even today- most people will not follow his example, and still strives to teach the ethic that is most important to all of mankind, respect. And does all this, knowing that he can never experience life the way in which humans do, love selfishly and with reckless abandon. No, Superman isn't allowed to be brave. Because a living symbol does not (or cannot) forget his responsibilities.

I like the intention of the quote. Even though the reality of it all is different, it is the juxtaposition of symbolism and what defines our translation of the word "bravery" that makes this deviation a point of interest for so many. Even when we dissagree, we are all agreeing that this is worth conversation.

This is true. This is the very reason why Superman is my LEAST favorite superhero because he's too strong. I'd rather Spiderman because he's not indestructable. He just shoots spiderwebs. I like batman the most because he has absolutely no superpowers whatsoever. He is just a normal human fighting crime.

I'm sorry, but I disagree with this 100%.

Also... really reminds me of Gladiator:

Commodus: "You wrote to me once, listing the four chief virtues: Wisdom, justice, fortitude and temperance. As I read the list, I knew I had none of them. But I have other virtues, father. Ambition. That can be a virtue when it drives us to excel. Resourcefulness, courage, perhaps not on the battlefield, but... there are many forms of courage. Devotion, to my family and to you. But none of my virtues were on your list. Even then it was as if you didn't want me for your son."

I agree but have to disagree a bit! Superman to my humble opinion is brave, and to me that is because while he does know he is indestructble, he knows the are millions in the world who are not. And Earth is really the only home he has to protect against villians who's powers almost match his. And if he fails, the lives of others suffer or end along with his home and those close to him.

Someone saw the Superman VS Goku Death Battle!! I SO agree with you, but we also need to remember that there are many types of bravery just as there are many types of love or hate. However, Superman can't be brave for risking his life when his life isn't in risk, that's not bravery it's more like a duty/responsibility.

As someone else here stated, Superman's bravery is from his morals. And Superman's fear is not for his own life, but for others'.
"Being bulletproof means nothing. There's no such thing as bulletproof. Anything that bounces off me hits something else. Could hit someone. The people in the most danger are those closest to me. Imagine living with that every day. It would be great if someone else were Superman, but I wasn't given a choice, only the responsibility." -Superman
He fears what will happen to others if he fails.

Superman IS brave, bravery is lack of fear in the face of danger
But he is not courageous, which is standing up to your fears ;)

"Lack of Fear, in the face of danger."
