"As long as that belief helps them improve, it doesn't really matter whether its true or not."
― Oriku (Reikenzan)
"As long as one child believes, we will be here to fight fear."
― Nicholas St. North (Rise of the Guardians)
"It's not about luck son, it's about effort. All the time I hear people saying the worlds not perfect, and their right it's not, but do you use that as an excuse, do you use it to excuse your own sins, your failings and your laziness, do you use it to give a bad man power because the world is not perfect. Or do you work, do you try and prove things in whatever way you can. Guys the world will never be perfect, but if good man do good things it can be better. Everyday can get better."
― Father Lucca Camilleri, to Sam and Dean Winchester (Supernatural)
