Last night, my husband and I watched the movie The Godfather, for the umpteenth time. My husband is a big fan of this movie, all three parts, and I am a big fan of certain quotes from the movie that I'm sure can change the life of every person for the better.

"A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."

Mario Puzo, The Godfather

I find this quote very true. Real men are devoted to the family and respect its value and importance. Raising and educating children is not an easy job and we mature with them and become people who fight for true values. Everything comes from the family. If we respect our family, we have learned the most important life lesson.

"You cannot say 'no' to the people you love, not often. That's the secret. And then when you do, it has to sound like a 'yes'. Or you have to make them say 'no.' You have to take time and trouble."

Mario Puzo, The Godfather

We should be wise when saying no to the people we love. They need our " yes". But we are not always willing to say yes, and yet we can try to make it sound like we did, even though we didn't.

"Never let anyone know what you are thinking."

Mario Puzo, The Godfather

Sometimes when we talk about our thoughts, they could lose their real meaning that only we understand. Plans often go awry.

"Time erodes gratitude more quickly than it does beauty!"

Mario Puzo, The Godfather

Over time, we forget the good deeds that others have done for us. Sometimes we forget before we have thanked. Save your gratitude for those who deserve it and never let it erode because time will take its toll if we are not aware of the gratitude we owe to others and to life.

"Yet, he thought, if I can die saying, "Life is so beautiful," then nothing else is important. If i can believe in myself that much, nothing else matters."

Mario Puzo, The Godfather

Nothing is more important than self-belief, which motivates us to look at life positively. I would like to die with the thought that life is beautiful and not disappointed.

"Forgive. Forget. Life is full of misfortunes."

Mario Puzo, The Godfather

Forgive and forget. That is very nicely said. Unburden yourself. Experience everything bad that happens to you as a necessary evil, and don't keep forgiveness for yourself, but share it with others. Life is too short to remember bad things and to save forgiveness for better days.

I hope that these quotes have motivated you to find the truth in them that we are often unaware of and that could improve our lives.

Thank you very much for reading.

"God Father" is a landmark in modern literature (I think so). If I had known Italian, I could get the original literary flavor!

Yes my friend. Forgive and forget, life is full of misfortune. We need it we should have a forgiveness it's for our own good and for the others. It will lessen the burdens we had then forget as it help us a lot because life is a cycle. There are a lot of unexpected situations can be occured. Don't let your life to be full of heartaches and painfulness.
