Don't ever let someone tell you, you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period. All right?Dreaming, Self-Confidence0
We all want things to stay the same, settle for living in misery because we’re afraid of change.Change0
He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you could cure racism and hate... literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people's lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out on that stage and sang. When they asked him why - He said, 'The people, who were trying to make this world worse... are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness.Peace, Vision, Hatred, Racism0
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. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.Fear, Self-Confidence0
We each owe a death - there are no exceptions. But, oh God, sometimes the Green Mile seems so long.Death0

Michael: "Can we have him for supper?"
Sylvia: "Have him to stay for supper, Michael. We aren't cannibals."
Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.Courage, Death, Men, War Speeches0

Fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!Freedom, War Speeches0
Sons of Gondor! Of Rohan! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand! Men of the West!Courage, War Speeches0
'What would you say if man walked in here with no shirt, and I hired him? What would you say?'
'He must have had on some really nice pants.'
It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking: How did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue. And maybe we can actually never have it, no matter what. How did he know that?Happiness, Freedom0
Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!Ambition, Self-Confidence0
How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand... there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep, that have taken hold.Pain, Time0
So I took the shotgun off the wall
and I fired two warning shots...
...into his head.
I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not.Past0

He killed them with their love. That's how it is every day, all over the world.Love0
But what if there isn't a happy ending at all?
There are no happy endings, because nothing ends.
Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing, do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade. You thought his laughter would never fade. Weeping willow, stop your tears. There is something to calm you fears. You think death has ripped you forever apart. But I know he'll always be in your heart.Desire, Death, Grief0
That's life. If nothing else, It's life. It's real, and sometimes it fuckin' hurts, but it's sort of all we have.Life, Ending, Death0
Pigs sleep and root in shit. That’s a filthy animal. I ain’t eatin' nothing that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.0
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.0
