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: I think there is definitely something great that happened, that's when I realized how I let people treat me, and realized that I was extremely unhappy, it was honestly so weird because I realize now my thinking hasn't drastically changed whatsoever, I realized I have always been this unhappy I just somehow hid the truth from myself, got comfortable with the pain, until I guess one day I just woke up and starting realizing that I'd never actually been "happy" I mean and I starting noticing all the things in my life that wernt right which was practically everything. I think that's when it went to where I'm at now.

    Anyway would you be comfortable explaining with more detail the event? If you wanted it to be privately, you could email me at brentley_smith@yahoo.com

    If not I understand but I think hearing the details would help a lot,



    One more question? Did you kind of understand what I've been trying to explain about how I'm pretty past the point of will power being able to superceed it, as in (i dont know if read all my posts) but if you can relate to how I can't really explain it and how it isn't, i dont know I hope you understand what I'm asking.

    Just can find the right words when it comes to this for some reason
