3. “No half-heartedness and no worldly fear must turn us aside from following the light unflinchingly.”

2. “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”

    ‘Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.’

    This entire speech right here, with the last line being my favorite, is one of my favorite things in the world. I don’t remember if it was in the books or only the movie, but it’s awesome either way.
