Quote of the Day

OK, I now I said I wasn’t going to post for a few days, but I have a quote from the movie Akeelah and the Bee. This was a WONDERFUL movie that I recommend for everyone. Here’s the quote:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Marianne Williamson

    Good quote but this isn’t the first movie to use it. Seems a little cheap to just take it after another movie (fairly recently) used it. Its Coach Carter by the way.

    I was aware that this quote was also used in the movie ‘Coach Carter’. I agree — you would think the writers could have come up with something different. Still a good movie, though, and a powerful quote.
