“Life is good. But it can be better.”

From: Wonder Woman 1984

Genre: Movies, Comics

Who said it?: Maxwell Lord

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the most recent live-action superhero film from Warner Bros. and DC, Wonder Woman 1984. This time around, Wonder Woman (played again by Gal Gadot) takes on Maxwell Lord, a struggling businessman with big dreams, who has managed to come across the Dreamstone, a mysterious object that can grant anyone’s deepest desires but with a cost.

The quote is said several times throughout the film as it is what Maxwell Lord (played by Pedro Pascal) says as his catchphrase and mantra. He basically uses this catchphrase as well as his charisma to paint himself as a successful person.

Geek wisdom: Although the way Maxwell Lord did try to build his success was skewed, that doesn’t mean what he says isn’t bad. Even when things are good, we should always try to get better. We can try to be healthier, save more money and indulge in life as much as we can because, even when things are okay, that doesn’t mean we have to settle for it.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
