Things Worth Believing In

If you want to believe in something, then believe in it. Just because something isn’t true, that’s no reason not to believe in it.

There’s a long speech I give to young men. Sounds like you need to hear a piece of it. A piece.

Sometimes the things that may or may not be true — are the things that a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good. That honor, courage and virtue mean everything. That power and money, money and power, mean nothing. That good always triumphs over evil. And I want you to remember this. Love — true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, you see. A man should believe in those things because those are the things worth believing in.

Got that?
