what is the most inspirational quote and or video you have seen that inspires hope and or the will to fight?

I suffer from depression. Kevin's video really hit home because it's the closest explanation for everything I have been experiencing and dealing with in the past three years. I'm currently in the severe state of apathy that he talks about but all these motivational videos and a lot of quotes I have seen recently are starting to help so my question is what is the most inspirational quote and or video you have seen that inspires hope and or the will to fight.

For example:
I heard a quote that has been stuck in my mind for a year now. And I think of it before I make any decision no matter how important,

"Never trade what you want the most, for what you want at the moment"

So any wisdom or motivational anything will help at this point.
