The story behind the quote: This quote comes from the Transformers: The Movie. Not the live action Michael Bay films. This is from the animated movie that was released in 1986. The film was actually pretty controversial for its time because of the deaths of practically the entire cast of the TV Series… during the first 20 minutes, no less!
The movie is set in the year 2005 (which was pretty far off in the future then) and, somehow, the treacherous Decepticons have managed to conquer the Autobots home world of Cybertron. The Autobots, however, refuses to give up the fight and have set up bases on the planet’s moons. Unknown to them, both factions face a bigger threat than themselves: the planet eater called Unicron.
Geek wisdom: We all have an idea of what our future will be. Unfortunately, the way to get to that future will be difficult and a lot of obstacles will lay in our path, obstructing us from achieving it. We must push through and go beyond these barriers and focus on the end result.
It may be difficult, especially at the start, and giving up may feel like a viable (and easy) option. However, we have to look past the problems and look at our goal. We have to focus on until that day comes and when all that effort will pay off.
