“The only real failure is the failure to try, and the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment. […] But perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same, so we must celebrate the changes, because, as someone once said, everything will be all right in the end, and if it’s not all right, then trust me, it’s not yet the end.”
— Evelyn Greenslade, character in the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011).
“Sometimes the things you want the most don’t happen and what you least expect happens. I don’t know — you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed forever.”
— Jamie Randall, character in Love and Other Drugs (2010)
“Look beyond the problem. If you focus on the problem, you won’t see the solution!”
— Patch Adams, Patch Adams (1998)
“You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.”
— Christopher Gardner, The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
