And wake you the hell up.
I knew he was different . These quotes made me realize why. Each one a life lesson. I especially loved the Fluency of Silence.
“If you’re too tired to speak, sit next to me, because I too, am fluent in silence.” - so powerful in so many contexts.
When someone has experienced a traumatic event it is very soothing for someone to quietly come alongside them, resist the urge to speak, and sit silently.
Great post Tim, one of your best.
Having lost my son 15 years ago, I finally find myself transitioning to a place of tranquility and inner peace. For years I have read about and admired Keanu Reeves. This post is a great collection of "why". Great job
Keanu is wise, loved and minted. I see his legacy and respect build on talent and human friendly approach. He doesn't need to call himself Jesus to be glorified as a close enough replica. He doesn't have to cut people on the way to glory. We all love Keanu for being close enough to J.
Very cool article. Keanu Reeves is one of my favorite actors/people; thank you for highlighting a few of his stoicisms.
I've had a question on my mind for a long time: How can we teach our children to be compassionate and wise without them experiencing tragedy and loss? I know from my experiences that pain gives us a lot to think about and helps us evolve, but if possible, I want our children to gain that wisdom without suffering.
Love all of this! I’m going to read it again and again ❤️
Hi Tim, another great post and although I'm a couple days late, I'm glad I got to catch up and read it.
I strongly resonated with quote #2. The concept of there being only one race is something that I've felt for years and wanted to share with others. I don't like how we continually divide ourselves into debatably mostly trivial categories. Maybe a month ago someone made fun of my appearance because I look like a foreigner, and I guess that's all that mattered to them.
I was really immersed until you made me laugh with your brief Toastmasters story. Thanks for sharing one of your embarrassing moments! It was placed perfectly and caught me off guard.
I stopped thinking of KR as an actor long ago. He’s an extraordinary human being.
"Money doesn’t have any meaning, but it does buy you the time needed to discover the meaning of your life."
"Until you can be in a relationship with yourself, it’s hard to bring in an outsider. And you bring you to every new romance. So figure yourself out first, otherwise it could be the hidden cause of all your broken relationships."
Thank you, Tim, for this thought-provoking, informative and humorous article.
That bit about being barely able to give a 60-second speech at Toastmasters, is particularly funny. 😄
Yep, it an interesting guy indeed. Great piece. Thanks for writing and sharing!
Well thanks for giving me about 10 new Tweets! :) Great quotes.
As I was reading through these quotes, all I could say was "oh my gosh"... "wow"... ""that's what I've been thinking, he gotta have some type of telepathy". I mean with the situation I'm going through right now, about each one of these quotes resonated within me. Has he written a book because I would love to read it and see more into his way of thinking and what I could learn. Thanx for this article!
Tim it's like you're reading my mind dude! I didn't realize how much I needed this until I read it.
Thank you thank you for continuing to delivery quality posts.
Thank you for putting this out, Tim.....I have always liked Keanu Reeves and these quotes are very thought provoking......
This is fantastic. I knew he was humble and unassuming but this goes beyond that. Thank you.
