Q: Your favorite quote is what?

A: "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 won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. 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 fear, our presence automatically liberated others." - Coach Carter [Marianne Williamson]
