In the movie "Coach Carter" a student is asked "what is your greatest fear" toward the end of the movie the student gives a narration to answer that question. Does anyone know if this is a direct quote from someone and if so who and when. Thanks, appreciate it.
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.
The quote originated with Marianne Williamson. from A Return to Love. It has often been mis-attributed to Nelson Mandela.
