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.
