Max's Father: Dangit, Max! Get serious, for once! What are you going to DO with your life?
Max: Why is it always what will I DO? "What will he DO", "What will he DO," "Oh, my gosh what will he DO", Do, do, do, do, do. Why isn't the issue here who I am?
Uncle Teddy: Because, Maxwell, what you DO defines who you ARE.
Max: No, Uncle Teddy. Who you ARE defines what you DO. Right Jude?
Jude: [awkward] ... Well, surely it's not what you do, but the, uh... the way that you do it.

I heard these lines in the film Across the Universe today and I had to go back and listen to them a few times on the DVD because they just seemed so inspiring. I think sometimes other people, and even I myself, wonder who I am and what I'm doing. I'm not always sure the answers to those questions but I DO know I like the way I do it.

Oh yeah, and I like the way Jude does it with his English accent in this movie...goodgosh he's gorgeous.
