“And why do we fall?” “So we can learn to pick ourselves up.”
Film: Batman Begins
There’s no setback in our lives that isn’t meant to teach us something greater. There’s no way we could fall without getting back up. It’s the cliche of all cliches, but it’s most definitely one we must always remember. In the midst of the all chaos, it’s easy to feel as though there’s no way to move on, but when we’ve fallen, the only thing left to do is to rise (pun totally ended for the next two Batman films).
One of the things we love most about this quote is the word “learn”. As human beings, we are not perfect – there’s no on and off switch to our strengths, but each time we fall, we learn. We learn how to get better. We learn about ourselves. We learn about the world. And we’ll always come up stronger than before.
