Every week I wish to bring you a quote from a videogame that is said by a character or inscribed somewhere in the game. These comments are commonly memorable and bring about a reasonable amount of thought or discussion based on the game quote. Sometimes I may just bring you a quote I find memorable and just enjoy hearing but that isn’t for today, this weeks quote comes to us from the popular Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and is one I have thought about a lot recently, it is a look at how time passes and just quickly time goes by. Let us take a look at this quote from the royal composers.
“The rising sun will eventually set, a newborn’s life will fade”.
This inscription is found when you go to get the Sun’s Song in the Kakariko Graveyard.
Time is a fragile thing and as many of us know time moves far to quickly and there are never enough hours in the day. The words used reflect the very nature of time and like the sun rising in the morning and descending for the night, the life of a person is short and a person newly born into the world ages quickly and before they know it life comes to an end. This is the exact meaning of the inscription given to us by the royal composers and it is words that should live with us all throughout our lives as we see our life end quickly. A day quickly becomes a month, which quickly becomes a year, which before you know it your life is finished. These words must be taken to heart and used to live out each day and make the best choices in order to have the best life possible. Life ends to quickly and you can be there one day and gone the next and so in a sense we could suggest this inscription tells us about feable time is and not to waste it.
I think this is an interesting comment made in the Ocarina of Time and we must always remember these words and what they stand for.
