Title: “The Lord of the Ring trilogy”
I’ve always been a fan of heroic fantasy.
This trilogy is in my top 10.
Why would I choose a violent movie as up lifting?
Because of the positive subject around the violence. Yes, it’s a violent movie. But, the main subject is about doing the best you can. Going all the way, if needed be, to even give your life.
Friendship is also a powerful subject in the movies.
One of the section I like a lot in “The return of the king”, is when Faramir talk with Éowyn about the weather a few days after the battle of Minas Tirith.
- Eowyn: “The city has fallen silent.” “There is no warmth left in the sun.” “It grows so cold.”
- Faramir: “It’s just the damp of the first spring rain.” “I do not believe this darkness will endure.”
Just a little part of the movie that is giving us a good example of how you can change your point of view and change your reality.

Greed is not about the accumulation of wealth. It’s the accumulation of wealth at the expense of someone else labors.
“There is no greed in desiring more, there is only greed in stealing the labors of others.”
– Jeremy Locke
It’s ok to want more. It’s ok to have more. As long as you don’t steal it.
The important part here is stealing. Stealing is never a good thing.
The Robin Hood story is just wrong. Even if you give back to people in need, stealing is not a good thing.
“There are a lot of people who are doing wonderful things, quietly, with no motive of greed, or hostility toward other people, or delusions of superiority.”
– Charles Kuralt
Do wonderful things for others. Earn the wealth you want doing so. Earn as much as you want.
You can be a good energy into the life of a lot of people as you earn the wealth you desire.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
– Nelson Mandela
For a better world, learn to be a better person.
I would recommend a good book about Nelson Mandela.
