“Today is the first day of the rest of our lives.”

From: Clerks II

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Dante Hicks

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from Clerks II. The sequel to Kevin Smith’s first ever film sees Dante Hicks and Randall Graves now working at a fast food restaurant after the original Quick Stop convenience store was burned down.

The quote comes the end of the film. Dante (played by Brian O’Halloran) and Randall (played by Jeff Anderson) have rebuilt the Quick Stop thanks to a loan from Jay and Silent Bob (played by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, respectively). After serving a customer, Dante turns to Randall and delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: There is actually some truth to that because every day is the first day of the rest of your life as well. Try to begin your day with a refreshed mind and try to look at life with a more positive outlook with new horizons to explore.

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!
