Notes to Self I

Hi! I’m The Deranged Writer. Welcome to the 1st edition of Notes to Self! This segment is where I remind myself of a relevant quote or a simple reminder. And that quote can be from any media or someone I know in real life.

In this 1st Notes to Self, I would like to share one of my favorite quotes of all time – from one of my favorite movies, Batman Begins.

Spoiler warning if you haven’t seen Batman Begins. If you don’t mind being spoiled, go ahead.

In the movie, the quote was said first by the father of Batman/Bruce Wayne, Thomas Wayne, and then it was brought up again by Alfred Pennyworth, Batman’s butler and confidante.

Why do we fall (Bruce/sir)? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Simply put, we fail, learn from that failure and then rise and persevere. Thank you, Batman Begins, for the memorable quote.

Until next time! I’m The Deranged Writer and you’re not.

Yes, he wears a mask sometimes. And according to most people, he looks like Bruno Mars when he is unmasked. He is a web/graphic designer by day and a hobby writer by night. (Or during his free time. It depends.) He is a huge fan of Dave Grohl and The Undertaker. He is a friendly introvert.
