I have always loved Anthony Hopkins. I mean, who else can make eating someone’s face off seem classy? I have always thought that he was an incredible actor, but I never knew that he was such a wise man. He seems to have a no-nonsense, take-me-as-I-am-or-f-you approach to life that I really admire. Here are a few of my favorite Sir Anthony quotes:
– “I love life because what more is there?”
-“We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.”
– “Life’s too short to deal with other people’s insecurities.”
– “Why love if losing hurts so much? I have no answers anymore; only the life I have lived. The pain now is part of the happiness then.”
And my absolute favorite:
– “My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me.”
Carry on, wise Sir. I hope that I one day I can have such a healthy attitude about life. Then maybe I can be a knight too!
