The Infinite Wisdom of Morgan Freeman

The Infinite Wisdom of Morgan Freeman

Chances are, you know exactly who Morgan Freeman is. In the business of show business, there are very few awards that he hasn’t won. His voice is one of the most recognizable voices in the world. In fact, if I had the money I’m pretty sure I would hire him to narrate my life for at least a day. Freeman is a rare talent, one that we have been blessed with for more than 30 years. One thing that has alway amazed me about Morgan Freeman is his love for his work and his outlook on life.

The other day I came across a quote that I found was attributed to Freeman that said, “I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away the part of you that knows it was a win to lock them up does rejoice.” That simple sentiment touched me, so I decided to put together some of the best quotes from “The Golden Actor” himself:

“The best way to guarantee a loss is to quit.”

“When you have made your choice, it is providence that is your guide. Good, bad, or indifferent. Your fate lies in that.”

“I only get one life, and I will not let Fibromyalgia take the joy from living it.”

“We humans are more concerned with having than with being.”

“How do we change the world? One random act of kindness at a time.”

“I always tell my kids if you lay down, people will step over you. But if you keep scrambling, if you keep going, someone will always, always give you a hand. Always. But you gotta keep dancing, you gotta keep your feet moving.”

“I can say that life is good to me. Has been and is good. So I think my task is to be good to it. So how do you be good to life? You live it.”

“Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.”

“And some places you been before are so great that you don’t ever mind going back. Some places you been before you don’t ever want to go back, you know, like Montreal in the Winter.”

“People need to start to think about the messages that they send in the movies.”
