Day 22 – Favorite fandom quote?
I don’t think this quote is the most favorite one in the Ghibli fandom but it is definetely mine:
A heart’s a heavy burden
Because it truly is, being someone empathetic is a burden; an honorable one. It means to take other people in the consideration sometimes even above your own desires. In the context of the movie, Howl stops being this superfluous coward brat because he starts truly caring about others. Caring and loving are wonderful things, but they come with sorrow and concern at times. Like a mother waiting for a child to come back at night, or a friend worrying about you. So a heart’s a heavy burden, but it is also a wonderful thing to have.
