Stay Alive

" We both had done the math. Kelly added it all up and... knew she had to let me go. I added it up, and knew that I had... lost her. 'cos I was never gonna get off that island. I was gonna die there, totally alone. I was gonna get sick, or get injured or something. The only choice I had, the only thing I could control was when, and how, and where it was going to happen. So... I made a rope and I went up to the summit, to hang myself. I had to test it, you know? Of course. You know me. And the weight of the log, snapped the limb of the tree, so I-I - , I couldn't even kill myself the way I wanted to. I had power over *nothing*. And that's when this feeling came over me like a warm blanket. I knew, somehow, that I had to stay alive. Somehow. I had to keep breathing. Even though there was no reason to hope. And all my logic said that I would never see this place again. So that's what I did. I stayed alive. I kept breathing. And one day my logic was proven all wrong because the tide came in, and gave me a sail. And now, here I am. I'm back. In Memphis, talking to you. I have ice in my glass... And I've lost her all over again. I'm so sad that I don't have Kelly. But I'm so grateful that she was with me on that island. And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring? "

شكلك شفتي الفيلم قريب ع الإم بي سي .. أصلي شفته برضه .. باحب أنا الفيلم ، وطبيعي باحب الأخ توم هانكس كما هو معروف .. ظننت هذا واضحا

حلو الفيلم .. وإن كنت شايف أنك برضه بدك تشوفي جرين مايل لأني متوقع أنه هايعجبك للغاية .. بس طبيعي أتوقع أنك لسة ماشفتيهوش حتى الآن .. صح؟

تعقيبي على الاقتباس ؟ .. مش هاعلق عليه أنا .. ظننت هذا واضحا برضك

Coca

It's my favourite too:)
That's why I posted this particular quotation, to help me and the others satay alive no matter what's going on.People tend sometimes to forget that "tomorrow the sun will rise" thus they may lose faith.
Perhaps we all need to wait for the "tide"
"Who knows what the tide could bring?":)

Pleased to have ur words here Coca, thx alot
