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.

  • Oct 9 2013: That's a good question indeed, but I think it can be argued reasonably for both points. I guess that's where faith comes into play, not necessarily faith in god, that too if that's what it means to you but also faith in your fellow human being. You can only have faith that the good outweighs the bad. One thing no one could argue against is NOONE. Is perfect so there's gonna be some bad.

    But now I feel bad cause I unfortunately partake in the nasty habit, bows just really not the best time to try and quit though honestly
