Favorite Quotes: Gift of Life Mewtwo

“I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.”

-Mewtwo (Pokemon: The First Movie) 

This is one of the most zen and coolest quotes I've ever heard. I remember reading someone pointing out that this was not said by someone like Abraham Lincoln, nor was it Buddha, it certainly wasn't Gandhi, it couldn't have been Jesus, impossible for it to have been Plato, but it was said by a pokemon, a pokemon in a children's cartoon movie from over twenty years ago. 


  1. That is an amazing quote! thanks for share with us

  2. This is quite an amazing quote, and so true.

    I can remember my children watching Pokémon all those years ago and it is still so popular … our two youngest Grandsons love Pokémon.

    Enjoy the remainder of Friday and have a great weekend.

    All the best Jan

  3. That’s beautiful and very thought evoking,

  4. Profound words, Adam! I'd have posted this in my classroom, if I had know about it when I was teaching!

  5. Never knew I would be reading pokemon quotes
    Coffee is on

  6. Not a Pokemon fan, but that quote is truly amazing! I've met two people who came from nothing, didn't study further than 4th grade and have become millionaires, but are still humble, helpful and great friends.
    Have a great weekend Adam.

  7. Lest we forget, an animated movie has a screenwriter.
