Topic For Today: ”Cinderella Today”
I remember this fairy tale; like every little girl, I watched it uncountable times, singing along. Interestingly the most famous Cinderella’s quote in English is « no matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true« , and in French the same text becomes « même si ton cœur a l’âme en peine, il faut y croire encore, le rêve d’une vie c’est l’amour« . A free translation would be « even if your heart is grieving, you should keep on believing, the dream of a lifetime is love« . Although it’s pretty, I think it doesn’t send the same message to the subconcious of a little girl. In English, I understand that any dream can come true, it’s an invitation to go for things and be daring. In French on the other hand, it is implied that a girl’s life dream depends on the love of a Partner. Maybe I’m going too far, but I just wanted to share this little difference of perception and message which is sent. Again, I may be wrong. Maybe it’s love for the mankind 😉
My two quotes aren’t directly from Cinderella, but they are related, and for me they illustrate the « today » part, I Don’t know if you agree.
I wouldn’t know how to walk on these shoes, but I see many women wearing them and look very comfortable. I’m pretty sure these would change a person’s life (poorer ’cause they are not cheap, back pain in old age, sore feet, no ?) I’m being cynical today, I know. My bad.
This one made me laugh so I thought I would share with you. I totally agree, she was just bored and wanted to have fun. Why wouldn’t she, after all ???
I had fun participating in this first « 3.2.1 Quote Me » today.
