“Believe you can and you will.”
This one is for @liberalofthenorth, me and every other GCSE student this year.
“I’m worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel – let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what they’re doing. I’m concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine that’s handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers."

"When someone says, “You’re a dreamer.” I can only answer, “You idiot… If I weren’t a dreamer, where would we be today?”
I’ve always believed in Germany. You said I was a dreamer.
I’ve always believed in the rise of the Reich. You said I was a fool.
I’ve always believed in our return to power. You said I was mad.
I’ve always believed in an end to poverty! You said that was utopian!
Who was right? You or me!? I was right!" ~ AH

“Not a lot of people know what it feels like to be angry, in your bones. I mean, they understand, foster parents, everybody understands, for awhile. Then they want the angry little kid to do something he knows he can’t do, move on. So after awhile they stop understanding. They send the angry kid to a boys home. I figured it out too late. You gotta learn to hide the anger, practice smiling in the mirror. It’s like putting on a mask.” - Joseph Gordon Lovett Smith as John Blake in “The Dark Knight Rises”
