Epiphany About Life

"Your life is an occasion Mahoney." Mr. Magorium then cups his young apprentice's face gently in his hands, "Rise to it!"

- Dustin Hoffman as Mr. Magorium in Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

Whoever you are, where ever you are, and whatever you do, life is not to be feared but lived! As Mr. Magorium said, "It is an occasion". Now go on and savor it, pursue it, and make the very best possible occasion you can muster! After all, "anything is possible". :o)

Yes! When I saw Dustin Hoffman deliver this quote it was just too perfect not to share. His performance is stunning and drives the point home even further. I have always followed and like the philosophy that life is a "journey" but I was totally wowed to think of life as an "occasion"!
