Life is beautiful

I watched this movie-‘life is beautiful’ a few days back (i dont know why i had missed it earlier). I didn’t know what the story is about till I watched it… because of this I think, I became very emotional. Seeing its name I had never guessed it to be a tragic story. Even after so many days I keep thinking about it. The director has delivered the message in such an effective manner that I think each and everyone who watches it will try to implement the lead character's ( Guido orefice) outlook towards life. Coincidently, on the same day, I received a sms from my friend which read – “the man who is always smiling doesn’t mean that he has no problems, but the smile shows that he has the ability to overcome all the problems”. This aptly describes the character of Guido orifice. I think whoever adopts this in their life will make their life beautiful.

LIFE, believe, is not a dream,
So dark as sages say;
Oft a little morning rain
Foretells a pleasant day:
Sometimes there are clouds of gloom,
But these are transient all;
If the shower will make the roses bloom,
Oh, why lament its fall?
Rapidly, merrily,
Life's sunny hours flit by,
Gratefully, cheerily,
Enjoy them as they fly.

What though death at times steps in,
And calls our Best away?
What though Sorrow seems to win,
O'er hope a heavy sway?
Yet Hope again elastic springs,
Unconquered, though she fell,
Still buoyant are her golden wings,
Still strong to bear us well.
Manfuly, fearlessly,
The day of trial bear,
For gloriously, victoriously,
Can courage quell dispair!
