I am sure that sometimes scriptwriters write gems without realising it.
Here is one from the TV series Eli Stone
“A gift is something that is given, you don’t own it.
The World does.
The World is asking you to use it
and you don’t get to say no,
no matter how much you might want to”
~ Eli Stone
I appreciate the sentiment. I believe it is our job to contribute and serve and to receive an appropriate reward for doing so.
