The simple act of paying attention can take you a long way.

Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves was catapulted to fame through his starring roles in action movie franchises such as “The Matrix” and “John Wick,” but it’s his gentle public persona that has earned him a beloved following among fans. The actor has been crowned “The Internet’s Boyfriend” after years of viral moments showing off his good manners, and for the thoughtful responses he often gives during interviews. (Reeves’ profound answer to Stephen Colbert’s question about death left the host speechless.) With his actions and words, Reeves reminds us of a simple wisdom: that by paying close attention to the world around us, we open ourselves up to little discoveries of happiness.
