Gem Quote from Lady Bird

All of the best movies come out in November and December. I went to see Lady Bird today and had pretty high expectations due to its 100% (but now 99%) rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Very tiny number of spoilers below! If you don’t want to know anything about the movie, stop reading!

“There are different kinds of sad! It doesn’t all have to be war.”

I loved this quote the moment she said it. It’s after a disappointing sexual experience, and the guy tries to minimize her feelings by talking about how many people have died in Iraq since the invasion (movie is set in 2002).

While it is important to keep perspective on how large your problems are in the grand scheme of the world, it’s not an excuse to invalidate someone’s feelings.
