Oh Matt Damon, how do I love thee? You seem smart, you are funny and you do good deeds; your wife is a lucky woman.
Matt Damon attributes his kind heart and good deeds to his mom Nancy. He told Parade, “When I was a boy, my mom had a magnet on the refrigerator with a little picture of Gandhi along with a quote from him. It said: “No matter how insignificant what you do may seem, it is important that you do it,’ As a child, I was raised to believe that, and to this day I do my best to live it.”
He also says,” I can’t think of any more important value to instill in our children than the desire to help others. I feel strongly about setting an example for them. Real problems can be solved by the next generation if we instill in them the right values. I’m not a politician, and I don’t want to tell anybody how to live. But I must say, all these years later, I still think Gandhi had the right idea: No matter how small the contribution we make may seem, it’s crucial that we all do our part.”
Now if only everyone thought along the same lines. My unrequited love will have to satisfied with watching Bourne Identity after I write this. TTFN
