Sunday Morning Quote (8/17/14)

Last night I spun over to Savannah’s beautiful Lucas Theater to see/experience The Sound of Music on the big screen.  Oh my goodness, call me dorky and hokey, but the mid-sixties film remains one of my favorite of all time.  Why?  Well, the music, of course, but also the sheer joy and power of the concept of enthusiastic personality.

And one of the most dramatic moments in the movie (well, to me) occurs when the mother superior advises Maria to return to the Von Trapp family to discover who she is and what she wants.

Her advice is for us all:

“Climb every mountain.  Ford every stream.  Follow every rainbow till you find your dream.”

— from The Sound of Music

Let’s all get to climbing some mountains!

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every highway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
‘Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life,
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.

Another spectacular version of the song:
