Things I’ve learned from Miyazaki films (part 1):
Laputa, Castle in the Sky
Technology, power, great civilizations—they’re all useless and meaningless without love and compassion, without the very things that make us human.
The Wind Rises

I’m not even going to summarize this—here’s the direct quote: “Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed. But still, you find reasons to keep living.”
Howl’s Moving Castle
Some people are brave enough to find love in so-called monsters, simply because they can see the darkness of the world reflected in those broken creatures.
