Memorable Quotes
"Akeelah: [quoting Marianne Williamson] Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?..." " And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0437800/quotes)
