Deepest Fear

Memorable Quotes from Coach Carter:

Timo Cruz:

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 own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

— Based on Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson

    I love this quote when i watched the film. I thought I had this copied down already but just can’t seem to find it! Thanks for putting this up!

    Interesting quote. Is the fear of self-shining due to low self-esteem (I don’t think I deserve it), possible attraction to attacks, or making people around you feel insure? Maybe a little bit of all. It is important to love who you are, value your strengths and proud what you have achieved.

    Hi Cindy. I think your last sentence sums it all up well 🙂
