Have you watched Kung Fu Panda? I watched the movie with my kids a day ago. In the show, the panda, an unlikely character, was chosen to be the dragon warrior to defeat the enemy. He had to learn martial arts skills and was initially daunted because he was fat and clumsy. The Panda is known as Po and the wise turtle who selected him as the dragon warrior, is known as Ooguay.
While watching the movie, I was struck by some memorable lines that kept me on the edge of my seat…
Po: “There is no charge for awesomeness - or attractiveness.”
Ooguay: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”
Ooguay: “One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it. ”
Ooguay: “There are no accidents.”
Tigress: It is said that the Dragon Warrior can go for months without eating, surviving on the dew of a single gingko leaf and the energy of the universe. Po: Then I guess my body doesn’t know I’m the Dragon Warrior yet. It’s gonna take a lot more than dew, and, uh, universe juice.
If you’ve not watched it, catch the movie this weekend. Guaranteed to make you laugh! Here’s the trailer, in case you are keen to find out what you are up against….
