4. “I have this feeling… I’m going to have a really good day today.”

Capheus is too good for this world. His devotion to his mother is something we should all aspire to, and his optimism in the face of hardship is the quality of a real hero.

When Shiro tells her son that he’d be better off without her, Capheus tells her to stop talking like that. Despite their financial circumstances and Shiro suffering from AIDS, Capeus refuses to give in to the despair. Before he leaves their home, Capheus tells his mother he believes he’s going to have a good day.

This quote ranks fourth because we could all use Capheus’ eternal optimism. A positive attitude and hope against all odds pays off in the end. Despite all the challenges Capheus faces, he manages to work every day with his best friend, he manages to get his mother needed medication, and he’s able to confront the bullies and thugs in his village. Capheus’ belief in positivity is what keeps the cluster in check. Capheus’ positivity complements Sun’s cynicism, Lito’s dramatics, and Wolfgang’s intensity.

Life may be unpredictable and tragic, but always having hope and optimism will always bring out the kindness in yourself and the people you encounter in your everyday life. We believe Capheus’ philosophy makes for an interesting character, but also an excellent moral of the story.
