Living Life to the Fullest: Inspiring Quotes from Me Before You

Share:
If there is any lesson I learned from reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, it is how everyone should learn how to live life to the fullest.


Me Before You follows the story of Lou, a simple girl whose job was to take care of Will, a patient who was paralyzed after an unfortunate accident. Both of them were polar opposites – Lou wanted nothing more than to live life in her comfort zone, while Will was always looking for new adventures. Getting along was a challenge for both of them, but over time they were able to know each other better. Eventually, they fell in love.

Unfortunately, Will wanted to end his life because he cannot stand to live the rest of his life in a wheelchair. As Lou was trying to convince him to change his mind, Will was also trying to knock Lou out of her comfort zone.

You’re gonna have to read the book to find out how the story ends. There are mixed reactions from the bookish community about the ending, but one thing is for sure – reading the book made a lot of people realize how living is different from just getting by.

Here are a few quotes from Me Before You that will inspire you to make the most out of your life, talents, and not be discouraged by any difficulties that come your way:

  10. Love the quotes and also love the actress in the movie. Its hard for me not to see her as someone else other than Khaleesi from Game of Thrones. The quote about only having one life is on point!

  15. I've watched the film and read the book, the book did do a good job explaining why he chose to end his life, while in the film, I couldn't help but still blame him for ending it~
