“Maybe if we started looking at what’s the same instead of always looking at what’s different… well, who knows?”

From: Pokemon: The First Movie

Genre: Movies, Cartoons

Who said it?: Meowth 

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes the aptly titled Pokemon: The First Movie… which just so happens to be the first theatrical film of the hugely popular Pokemon franchise.

The quote comes from Meowth from Team Rocket (voiced by the late Maddie Blaustein) during the second segment of the film, Mewtwo Strikes Back. He initially thinks of battling his clone but the two decide against it. Meowth then realizes the similarities between him and his clone and delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: We are more similar and alike that we realize. The issue is we focus on the differences instead of concentrating on the common ground we all have between everyone who lives on the planet. Maybe if we do reflect on our commonalities, we might just start understanding each other.
