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.
((From the movie Coach Carter))


You sit in your little glass bowl all day.
What do you think?
What do you see?
What do you fear?
Do you know of fear?
You just hide in your little plastic cave.
For to you, the world seems kind, but you don't know of the world.
All you know of is your artificial rocks, your phony cave, and your impostering coral.
You foolish fish.
Do you not know of the dangers in this world?
Do you not live fear?
Do you not know of pain?
You foolish fish.


But ohh,how i wish i was that fish.
