Akeelah: [quoting Marianne Williamson] Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
Dr. Larabee: Does that mean anything to you?
Akeelah: I don\'t know.
Dr. Larabee: It\'s written in plain English. What does it mean?
Akeelah: That I\'m not supposed to be afraid?
Dr. Larabee: Afraid of what?
Akeelah: Afraid of... me?
