“If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful, but with the powerless; if you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those who do not have your advantages, then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence, but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped change. We do not need magic to transform our world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”—JK Rowling, Harvard Commencement Speech 2008 (via little-bigthings)
“It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you.”—The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (via infinitexposure)
“I’ve heard it said, that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn and we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them and we help them in return.
Because I knew you, I have been changed, for good.”—Wicked
