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 ManĀ 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.
