REBECCA HALL: “Benedict was one of those boys that you met and you could already see what he was going to be like when he was middle-aged. He is a one-off, and it is the fate of people who are unique for others not to notice their talent straight off the bat. It’s easy for people to say, ‘Wow, you are the next Johnny Depp.’ Benedict was never going to be the next anybody. He was always going to be just who he is.” ✿
“Go ahead then; study, study and meditate well what you study. Life is a very serious thing and only those with intelligence and heart go through it worthily. To live is to be among men and to be among men is to struggle. But this struggle is not a brutal and material struggle with men alone; it is a struggle with them, with one’s self, with their passions and one’s own, with errors and preoccupations. It is an eternal struggle with a smile on the lips and tears in the heart. On this battlefield man has no better weapon than his intelligence, no other force but his heart.” — José Rizal, in a letter written to Alfredo Hidalgo
“Just looking at a girl felt awkward. When you feel like an oddball, it never really leaves you. Even now, I’m better around people who are uncomfortable with themselves, the misfits.”
Don’t worry about failure, you only have to be right once.
- Drew Houston
“Your commanders have committed a crime I cannot forgive, none of you are safe… Have I got your attention now? You have no idea what you have done. I will walk over your cold corpses.”
