Sunday Inspiration: Like Springs

1 min read

See a good military movie this weekend. I recommend Gallipoli. It is a moving film about war, friendship and the tragic loss of innocence. A heartbreaking tale that will make tough guys weep because it resonates throughout with sadness.

The movie follows two close friends who are athletes who put aside their dreams to join the ANZAC army and get into the battles of WW1. You’ll know what I mean at the climax which depicts the Battle of the Nek, a doomed push against the Turkish trenches by the 8th and 10th Light Horse.

Jack:
What are your legs?

Archy Hamilton:
Springs. Steel springs.

Jack:
What are they going to do?

Archy Hamilton:
Hurl me down the track.

Jack:
How fast can you run?

Archy Hamilton:
As fast as a leopard.

Jack:
How fast are you going to run?

Archy Hamilton:
As fast as a leopard.

Jack:
Then lets see you do it.
