Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
We ask ourselves ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’
Actually, who are you not to be?
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that within us.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
At above is one of quotation from movie ‘Akeelah and The Bee’. Read by Akeelah when she practicing ‘spelling bee’ with Dr.Larabee. This inspiring quote is from book ‘A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles’ by author Marianne Williamson and it was originally spoken by Nelson Mandella in 1994. And here goes, the spoiler of the scenes of that part :
Some of conversation after Akeelah read the quote :
Dr.Larabee : Does that mean anything to you?
Akeelah : I don’t know.
Dr.Larabee : It’s written in plain English. What does it mean?
Akeelah : That I’m not supposed to be afraid?
Dr.Larabee : Afraid of what?
Akeelah : Afraid of… me?
