Today for the first time I saw the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth, coming out next year. I LOVE this type of stuff. Upon my first viewing, I heard something in the trailer that I knew was perfect for our site. In it Will Smith’s character says this:
If we are going to survive this, you need to remember, fear is not real. It is a product of the thoughts you create. Now do not misunderstand me; danger is very real. But fear is a choice.
Check out the trailer and the quote for yourself here:
I don’t know if I’m fully on board with the quote, but it’s worth chewing on. Does “fear” exist outside of our minds? No. But within our minds, it is pretty real. Check out some of our thoughts on Overcoming Fear here.
Due to the trailer, I was inspired to find the best Will Smith quotes out there. I’m not a big follower of Will Smith or anything, but I thought, “Who ever looks for the best Will Smith quotes?” Here’s some more of what I found:
Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.
Money and success don’t change people; they merely amplify what is already there.
The fellow that can only see a week ahead is always the popular fellow, for he is looking with the crowd. But the one that can see years ahead, he has a telescope but he can’t make anybody believe that he has it.
Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too.
Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.
