Quarterly Quotes

This week I will be introducing a new segment on my blog called quarterly quotes! I will be posting 1 quote per month (every 4 weeks) that is interesting, important, or memorable to me. These quotes will come directly from movies or shows that I’ve watched. Also, I will be implementing themes for each month. For example December may be Christmas themed while February may be about love. I will chose movies and quotes that pertain to these topics. My first quote will be:

“Be not afraid of greatness, some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

This quote came from the movie She’s the Man starring Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum. This quote was definitely memorable because the movie had been building up to the moment where Duke Orsino (Tatum) said this and was basically the resolution of the movie. This movie inspired me to be not afraid of going against the flow and pursuing what you are truly passionate about – in Viola’s case, soccer. It really touches on the creative movement and the innovation project that I’ve been working on with some of my peers.

One thought on “Quarterly Quotes

  1. This is a really motivational and unique quote, and is perfectly displayed in the movie She’s the Man. It motivates me to keep grinding on what I want to achieve in my life, no matter how unlikely and unfavorable the odds might be. It reminds me to be patient and humble, as I might not be born with talent to be great, but I certainly can become great at something if I put myself into the right situation, with the right mindset, and with a bit of luck. If you are fearless and relentless, then you can do anything you want. I believe that if you are so passionate about something, and if you strive to reach greatness at that passion with a mentality that nothing will deter you, then you will eventually achieve greatness with your passion.
