Meta: Akeelah quote

| | Comments (1)

Akeelah and the Bee is an incredibly touching and powerful film about a young African Ameican girl who is inspired to succeed through the help of her community and friends. I love the quote at the center of the film:

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.

Apparently it's by Marianne Williamson.

Hmmm.... I took this online Aspberger's Test and scored a 38....... which puts me above "extreme."

All of my friends are silently going "duhhhhhhhhhh!" behind my back.
