If You Lose Your Purpose


Hugo (image: film.thedigitalfix.com)

“Maybe that’s why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, 
because it isn’t able to do what it was meant to do… 
Maybe it’s the same with people.
If you lose your purpose…
it’s like you’re broken.”
-Hugo, dir. Martin Scorsese, 2011.

    • mmm.. it’s just one of my fav quotes from the film. actually, i was thinking even further into the meaning and thinking of it in the portrait of how God made us. He designed us so that we may reflect His glory (He designed us in His image), but we messed it up (the entrance of sin into our lives) and thus, we are a broken people because we’re not functioning as the way God intended us to be.

  1. I can’t view the video. I think it’s from youtube, and youtube is banned here in our office.

    I sometimes feel that way too. I’m not talking about my whole life, but even for the weekend, I needed purpose or plans or that weekend would go a waste idly. We all need purpose for every single day of our lives to be meaningful. No matter how small it is.

    I loved that movie. I might have to watch it again.
