Don’t be afraid.

— Thomas Wayne’s last words to his son Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) in the movie Batman Begins


Defeat is always momentary.

— Actor Jack Black in the movie King Kong

Life can be whatever you make it and getting what you want isn’t always easy.  Many times you will need to fight and work for what you want.  You will have to be smart, creative, determined, courageous and perhaps even ruthless at times.  Don’t stop at the first sign of trouble.

Always know if the juice is worth the squeeze.

— Timothy Olyphant, in the movie The Girl Next Door

I think this quote above is at the heart of this movie.  What the quote means is that you should always be aware of what you are going to have to sacrifice and/or go through to achieve the great things you want out of life.  What it comes down to is, “finding that one thing you really care about. That one special thing that means more to you than anything else in the world. And when you find it, you fight for it. You risk it all, because in your heart you know, that the juice is worth the squeeze.”
