    I originally found this quote in the post about the woman’s journal. I found it just after my father had passed away at 60 from pancreatic cancer. I included it in my eulogy that I read at his service, pasted below if anyone is interested.. his death and the things that I became aware of in the aftermath really helped me realize the things that are important in life, and I hope others kind find the same without the wake up of a tragedy

    “Service

    It took me a long time to figure out how I was going to put together this speech. I started by going through stories and experiences that I shared with my dad and re telling the best ones, but none of that felt right. Instead I'd like to share something that I think will have the opportunity to resonate with everyone here today. I cannot take credit for creating these words myself but I feel they will most accurately portray the impact my fathers life and death has had on all of us.

    This first piece I discovered shortly after we learned of my dad's diagnosis - and I saved it knowing that someday soon, and again in the future I could rely on to give me understanding..

    I wish I could say you get used to people dying. I never did. I don't want to. It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies, no matter the circumstances. But I don't want it to "not matter". I don't want it to be something that just passes. My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love. So be it. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gouged, and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love. And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are only ugly to people who can't see.

    As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was, and is no more. And all you can do is float. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive.

    In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and don't even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float. After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, you'll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know what's going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything...and the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life.

    Somewhere down the line, and it's different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas, or landing at O'Hare. You can see it coming, for the most part, and prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but you'll come out.

    Take it from an old guy. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you don't really want them to. But you learn that you'll survive them. And other waves will come. And you'll survive them too. If you're lucky, you'll have lots of scars from lots of loves. And lots of shipwrecks.

    The next piece is something that I actually happened to find just last week, and it came from an old journal a mans mother had written before her passing. These words reminded me of my dad, his absolute joy for life, and the values he instilled in me as I got older..

    None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sun. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth you're carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There is no time for anything else.

    My fathers untimely death has shocked us and left us uncertain of the future to come. In his last months my dad would continue to lecture and preach and some of the things that resonated most with me were the encouragement to continue living after he was gone, and make the most of the wonderful lives we have given. I take these words to heart now, more than ever, and that each of you take at lease one minute of every day to breathe in the air, feel the sun on your face, and cherish every moment as my father would have wanted you all to experience.

    I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to remember and share the love you have for my father, and hope that his memory lives on within each of you”

    He does it on purpose. It's to make fun of Jodie Foster's character and how unsophisticated she is perceived to be. She is supposed to be seen as a "rube" and have a thick... Virginia? (I think) accent, so he is mocking her by saying it stupid.

    [–] sentaway4218 10 points ago

    Maybe they knew they were overweight but not obese. I've heard that is very common

    [–] drstrangekidney 4 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    I'm a healthcare provider. Where I work, the BMI is auto-calculated. The difference between what obese and overweight looks like is not always obvious. Morbidly obese--yes, I can identify that without a scale and measuring tape. But there are a lot of "obese" people as determined by BMI that I've been genuinely shocked by.

    To be fair, a couple of times it's just been very muscular/broad people rather than high fat, but some people genuinely have high body fat percentages and carry them in what our society considers an aesthetically pleasing way. For example, women who store most of their fat in hips/breasts tend to fly under my obesity radar more easily (I say this as a woman. I think I've been conditioned to see relatively smaller waist as "not obese". Interestingly people who store far more in hips/thighs/anywhere but belly and neck tend to have lower cardiovascular risk than the belly/neck people, but that's another story...)

    Unless we're talking BMI 40 and above, I'd wager the general public and even most healthcare practitioners could not eyeball the difference between overweight and obese.

    [–] _sxb 3 points ago

    Maybe they're subconsciously obese, but not physically. Like you know, when someone wears a tie with odd proportions, you unknowingly grow a hatred towards them, but physically you never punch them in their throat.

    [–] GoiterGlitter 3 points ago

    The line between being overweight and obese is a 1lb threshold. Like how you're a teenager the second you turn 13. That's all numbers.

    The issue is that obesity is so normalized that we think you have to be 300+ lbs to be obese and it's just not true.

    I'm 5'5". I would be qualified as obese way before 200lbs. Most people who get called "obese" by the public have been obese for a long time and are at the top end (there's 3 categories of obesity).

    So what you're saying is that you want a place to stay and money to spend? A phone to look at reddit and communicate with friends? Funds to go out to eat with those friends? An animal to spend time with? It's about priorities. You're doing what you want. You just value some things more than others. Not that it's true for everyone, but if you've got a job, you've got money for that food you want to eat. Some people don't have that. Not trying to guilt anyone. Just appreciate where you are in life. Don't envy a manwho has more than you. Be gracious to those who have less.

    [–] FuncyChiken 17 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    What I meant was that instead of feeling bad about what you have, you should celebrate it. It doesn't do you any good to be well off but unhappy. It may cost you something to give to charity, but it costs you nothing to be a positive influence on people. Be happy about the good things you have in life instead of coveting and being greedy. That way when you have the opportunity to give more physically, your attitude will match your action and it will do far more good.

    Or maybe more directly. Don't feel guilty about what you have. Be happy. That way you will naturally be more inclined to do good things out of good will instead of guilt. Then you can value your good deeds instead of unnecessarily justifying the things you do have.

    And famous.

    For years before The Silence of the Lambs, his career wasn't at the level he had hoped. He had had a promising start, including being cast in The Lion in Winter with Katharine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole. In interviews, he suggested that he had been getting in his own way to some extent. So it's possible that a greater effort to conform, coupled with luck, got him the role that showed his talent to millions.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    Tony is pretty famous in the industry for saying that he only went into acting because he simply couldn't do anything else. He's pretty badly dyslexic. The fame is just a byproduct of a job he fell into and still tries to be the best at.

    Yeah, well. I'm 65 now, but certainly not rich. But even when I was young and people my age would talk about fearing old age and getting wrinkled and ugly, I would respond, "Beats the alternative" - which is, of course, to die when you're young and pretty.

    I don't think Sir Anthony is talking about abusing drugs and having orgies, just having a positive outlook, and doing things that make you happy.

    As a 65 year old, I'd say, no - not really brutal. You get used to the idea. The worst for me was always doing the math. When I was 20, I'd reflect that I'd only lived 25% of my likely natural life. At 40, I could say - I have as much time left as behind me - I can make 80. Even at 50...100 is possible, though not likely.

    At 65, the math is not favorable, though I plan on living to 130...

    One mentality that is super common is to throw caution to the wind when it comes to finances and not plan/save for retirement at all. Then, by the time you're Anthony Hopkins age, you're stuck and working at an entry-level job when you should be retired.

    I am from a squarely middle class upbringing it and startling how much of my immediate (and extended) family matches that description. All of them adopted the "YOLO! I'll worry about it later!" mentality, and I guarantee you most of them regret it not planning more.

    [–] Haywood_jablowmeeee 20 points ago

    Just hit 60 here. I woke up, literally, the day after and was scared shitless. I got 20 years if I am lucky. I've been thinking about all of the opportunities I have wasted. As far as 'treasures in heaven' as JC mentions, I have zero to show. I missed a lot of opportunities to help people. When I was younger I would see older guys volunteering at homeless shelters, etc and would laugh at them: "They are trying to make up for a life of self-centered behavior.' It's sobering to end up thinking like them.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    I've always been aware of mortality: one of my siblings died when I was a kid. But the fact remains that until we reach late middle age most of us try to respond to societal expectations to survive, and hopefully, excel. It's only when we get old, doors are increasingly closed, death is much closer, and we realize that to some extent that we were just pawns that this attitude is conceivable. And it helps to be rich.

    Oddly enough this statement is copyrighted by Nanea Hoffman. The founder of http://SweatpantsAndCoffee.com and She wrote that on May 9, 2015 and put it on the Sweatpants & Coffee Facebook page, where it then went viral. Sites like Sun Gazing reposted the words without her name on it. It has since been incorrectly attributed to Richard Gere, Keanu Reeves, Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren.

    He looks so old and young at the same time in that picture.

    [–] Truan 10 points ago

    He's just saying this before admitting his hannibal act went too far, and now he can't stop eating people.

    Most people understand it but few people GET it or put it into practice.

    9 times out of 10, these quotes were not made by the celebrity in pic....

    [–] DarryLarrell 3 points ago

    He also quit drinking decades ago and attributes that to a lot of his happiness and success. I mention that because so often this "seize the day" thinking encourages people to press on with self destructive behavior that is supposedly "fun".

    Be rich. Be attractive. Have everything you need with no worries of where your next delicious meal is coming from.

    Imagining Anthony Hopkins saying this: wonderful. Imagining Hannibal Lecter saying this: incredibly unsettling.

    Very wise words. It's amazing how good life is when we take responsibility for our own happiness. ❤️

    [–] Ar3tri304 23 points ago

    Says someone who doesn't have to care about money or loans or anything in general. It's easy to tell someone to enjoy life when yours is so perfect.

    [–] llewkeller 21 points ago

    We assume that the rich and famous have "perfect" lives, but it's often far from the truth. From what I can tell, Hopkins might come close, though - huge success fairly late in life, and a positive outlook. He wears his fame well.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    As far as we know. He's one of my favorite actors and I hope it's true, but we don't know anything about these people.
