quote from Persepolis

I was really moved by the animated film Persepolis. I really liked the advice Marji’s grandmother gave her the night before Marji left home to attend school in Vienna to escape the revolution and war-related craziness in Iran.

“You’ll meet a lot of jerks in life. If they hurt you, remember it’s because they’re stupid. Don’t react to their cruelty. There’s nothing worse than bitterness and revenge. Keep your dignity and be true to yourself.”
