    – Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore (Harry Potter…)

    ” 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.

    There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
    so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

    It’s not just in some of us; it is 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. ”
    – Timo Cruz (Coach Carter)
