“If you want to believe in something, then believe in it. Just because something isn’t true, that’s no reason you can’t believe in it … that people are basically good, that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything, that money and power mean nothing, that Good always triumphs over Evil … that true love never dies.
You remember that, boy… doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, you see. A man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in.”
-- Robert Duvall, in Secondhand Lions.
