Sunday Inspiration through Film

Today is Sunday, so I thought I’d link to some of my favorite inspirational scenes. None are from a particular religion but I find the spiritual, none the less.

Or maybe not.

After I watch them, I actually think I could beat anyone up if needed. Maybe some people find that spiritual. No judgment here.

The first is from Henry V with Kenneth Branagh. I fell in love with Shakepeare through him. And he delivers this scene so perfectly. The music behind the scene adds so much more.

Full disclosure – I once quoted this scene in a talk for church once. I love this scene so much, I had to. I simply had to. It wasn’t until a couple of years later when I was at a writing conference on St. Crispin’s day and author and actor CC Humphrey‘s recited it in his amazing British accent that I realized, it probably didn’t really work coming from me during a church talk. Live and learn.

The English won that battle.

The following scene is after the battle. I love song that accompanies it. It starts with just one voice and then builds. It makes me feel like I can do anything as long as I just start. (Just watch the whole film. It’s amazing. Just do it.) ((Warning: this scene is about collecting the dead English – as you can see in the picture below.))

And finally, we turn to the Lord of the Rings for some inspiration. (I did very well in my English Lit classes.). Aragon has some of the greatest speeches.

I haven’t used this one in a church talk. Yet. I’m sure one day I will, ill advisedly. I just hope that when I do, I don’t end by yelling, “For Frodo!” and then run into the congregation.

But I wouldn’t bet against it.

If you have some favorite inspirational quotes, leave them below.

Thank you and Happy Sunday, Folks!
