The enhanced community quarantine has left families facing unprecedented challenges: its huge impact on our livelihoods, the loss of normalcy, the anxiety over the health of our loved ones, and the lack of physical connection. To help give you even a little bit of relief, we humbly offer this list of the most inspiring lines from Pinoy family movies!
1. For when you feel like no one listens.
Kahit ‘yung hindi binibigkas ng ating bibig, at ‘yung mga lihim
na dinadaing ng ating mga puso, nadidinig Niya ‘yun.
- Lola Loleng, Tanging Yaman
Even during the most difficult times, God hears our plea.
2. For when you feel hopeless.
Siguro, kaya Niya ako nilagay sa dilim ay para makita ko ang liwanag.
- Sarah, Sarah... Ang Munting Prinsesa
When you don't know which way to go, have faith and remember that God has a plan.
3. For when you feel weak and useless.
Walang kulelat sa atin. Walang ganun sa atin.
- Bobbie Salazar, Four Sisters and a Wedding
To anyone who needs to hear this, take it from Bobbie Salazar! You are stronger than you think. Laban lang!
4. For when you need to boost your morale.
“Cherish this moment. Today is all you really have.”
- Vera Go’s fortune cookie, Mano Po
Why survive when you can thrive? You’ve got this!
5. For when you need something to look forward to
When all this is over, you can finally say…
“Punta tayo sa dati nating pinupuntahan. Kain tayong bibingka. Inom tayong Coke. Kwentuhan tayo. Magbiruan. Magsabihan tayo ng mga pangarap natin.” - Lea, Bata Bata Paano Ka Ginawa?
