Quotes

Ann Richards: We are taught to learn the names of the kings and queens of England, the Presidents of the United States, the dates of which events happened. But this person
[her hands folded and are close to her chest, uses her thumbs to gently point to herself]
Ann Richards: this core of who you are and what your value system is, is always going to be there no matter what. I don't think that we're train very often to think about that.

Truly inspirational
1 September 2004 | by Videoguy88See all my reviews

"Are you waking up excited and going to bed fulfilled." This is a

quote from Eric toward the end of the film and it really sums up a

main theme in this film. What are you going to do with the rest of

your life?

To me this film is so much more than a movie, because it really

empowers people to go for their dreams. With so many powerful

stories and interviews in this film you can't help but be moved.

Traveling across the county in a VW bus with Eric's dog, Jack, the

four travelers meet some truly amazing individuals. This is a film

with a lot of substance and should not be missed.
