As the saying goes, “No matter how old you are now, you are never too young or too old for success.” There is no age limit on going after what you want. As long as you pursue with your dreams in life, nothing is wrong with it. Be like Brook who might be the oldest Straw Hat, but still kicking with his inspirational quotes in life.
There is no doubt that Brook of One Piece is already at the old age of 90 yet still has a great Afro. Aside from it, he is also the tallest despite being old. He has been the last member to join the Straw Hat pirates and he takes the position of musician.
Brook’s devil fruit is the yomi yomi no mi or what you might know as the revive revive fruit. This can bring back the user from the dead. However, since Brook’s Soul could not find his body for a year, what his soul returned to was his Afro and decomposed body.
Unluckily, he died but what is good about his attitude that you might want to adapt is his optimism. According to him, “What keeps me alive in this world is neither bodily organs, nor muscles – it is my soul!” To him, it is not the tangible things which matter but those intangible ones which can never get replaced with.
Another quote from him which might move you is when he said, “No matter how deep the night, it always turns to day, eventually.” You might not get what you want now. You might be experiencing a lot of problems in your life. But there is the assurance that one day, you will get to where you want and should be. Whether you are old enough or still too young, you’ll get through it. You just have to trust the process. Keep on dreaming.
