Ok, this is the final day of the Quote-a-Day challenge!
I have been thinking long and hard about which quote I should end this trio off on. I spent a lot of time on google before the answer finally hit me. Really, it should have been incredibly obvious! I should have known that when it comes to wisdom, nobody does it quite like Uncle Ben
With great power comes great responsibility
Ok, ok. Technically Uncle Ben didn’t say this originally! It was actually first used as part of the narration in one of the panels of Amazing Fantasy #15 (Spiderman’s first ever appearance in a comic, FYI). However, this quote is widely attributed to him and has been said by him in various movie adaptations (or very roughly alluded to), so I’m gonna give him some credit here! This quote is iconic as it is true. When you are in a position of power, you suddenly become responsible for a lot more than just yourself. You need to keep other people in mind and know that everything that you do affects them in some way. However, this quote doesn’t just apply to world leaders and masked vigilantes! When a YouTuber has an expanding audience of admiring fans, it is their responsibility not to exploit them. When a person sees a man with his leg stuck between a train and a platform, it’s their responsibility to tell a transport officer and get them help! Simply put: If you have the means to do good, then it is your responsibility to use your power for the right reasons. This quote is basically a reminder to do the right thing and not let any power go to your head. A little Parker logic never goes astray!
So anyways, that’s it for the Post a Quote a Day challenge!
Today I’d like to nominate Jodi from A Brash Attitude 🙂
And before I go, just a little housekeeping! I’m going away next week so I won’t be posting anything new for the time being (sad face). However, as soon as I get back we will return to our regular scheduling! I’m going to miss posting so much, but I promise you guys that I will come back with plenty of awesome ideas! Just you wait and see 😛
I hope you guys have an amazing week
Lots of love
P.S. I couldn’t end this post without including the infamous Tobey Maguire crying face! Oh Tobey, you will always be Spiderman in our hearts 😛
