A gut wrenching tale of love, honor and justice based on true historical events has been my on demand go to this week. in the tale of Spartacus, a man without a penny to his name, with not even freedom to call his own, believes in something greater than himself and changes the fate of history. and if that wasn’t enough, the characters are very easy on the eyes.
4 inspiring takeaways from Spartacus:
- “I believe in opportunity. And the power of reason to seize upon it.” In all things there is opportunity. If only we have the ability to look for it and the courage to take action.
- “A man is never too weak or too wounded to fight if the cause is greater than his own life.” Nothing will stand in the way of a man/woman who believes with all their heart. Nothing is stronger, and I would hate to be the force that stands in the way.
- “There is always a choice.” period.
- “And maybe there’s no peace in this world, for us or for anyone else. I don’t know, but I do know that as long as we live, we must stay true to ourselves.” Your life is not of chance. Be you. Share your talents. Dream, believe and change the world.
If you haven’t had the chance to watch Spartacus. I highly recommend, especially if you are a fan of Game of Thrones and/or Vikings.
