1205 - 'Dangerous Minds"

The other day, on an English TV channel, I watched the 1995, Michelle Pfeiffer movie- 'Dangerous minds'. It was a nice movie and following are some of the nice quotes from the same:-
"Words are thoughts, and we cannot think without them."

"keeping an 'A' is harder than getting 'A'. Almost anyone can get an 'A' once. But keeping it is an accomplishment."

"You know how to run, but not the way you could run if you are trained. The mind is like a muscle. If you want to be really powerful, you got to work it out. Each new fact gives you another choice. Each new idea builds another muscle. And it is those muscles that are gonna make you really strong. Those are your weapons, and in this unsafe world, I want to arm you. At the end of the term..........if you are faster, stronger and smarter, you will be that much tougher to knock down!"
