Quote: Jim Carrey speech at MIU

Pierre Waterschoot



Jim Carrey

“Now fear is going to be a day in your life. You will have to decide on the quantity. You could spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about the way forward. But all there will ever be is what's going on here, in the decisions we're making right now that are either based on love or based on fear. Many of us choose our path based on fear disguised as a practical means. What we really want seems incredibly out of reach and so ridiculous that it could happen that we've never dared to ask the universe for it. I tell you that I am proof that you can ask the universe. Please ! »


“My dad could have been a great comedian, but he didn't believe it was possible for him, so he made a conservative choice. Instead he got a safe job as an accountant and when I was 12 he was fired from that safe job. And our family had to do everything they could to survive. I learned several great lessons from my father. Not least, you can fail in what you don't want to, so it might be best to take your chance, choosing to do what you love. »


“How are you going to serve the world? What will be your contribution that could be useful to this world? That's all you need to understand. As someone who has done what you are about to do, I can tell you from experience: the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is. »


“Take your chance with faith, not religion but faith, not hope but faith. I don't believe in hope. Hope is a beggar. Hope walks through fire and faith leaps over it. »


“You are ready and able to do great things in this world and when you walk through these doors today you will have only two choices: love or fear. Choose love and never let fear turn against your playful heart. »
