Amazing Grace (The Movie)

I've just finished watching Amazing Grace (the movie). I can sum it up in one word:


That word kept on crossing my mind as I continued the journey with William Wilberforce who persevered for 11 long years before he could abolish the slave trade in Britain. I recommend this movie to anyone. ;-D

Here's the official movie trailer in case you're interested.

Here are more links about William Wilberforce:

"You Have Not Labored in Vain"

William Wilberforce

Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless.
- Honoré de Balzac

Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost.
- Proverb


  1. First of all thank you so much for such a beautiful comment! Secondly, I will definitely watch this movie, whenever I will get it. And I love the saying of the Honore de Balzac about passion... This is so true, without passion- everything would be simply useless...

  2. I've never heard of this movie, Amel. I'll have to seek it out -- sounds like it would definitely be worth it.

  3. I'd never heard of that movie either. I'm definitely going to seek it out. Thanks for the recommendation. F

  4. Nika: UR welcome!!! Yeah, we do need passion in our lives. ;-D
