"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."Time runs out for all of us and the circumstances of our lives, as well as how and when they'll end, are out of our control. The only thing we can control how we respond to these things, how we use our fleeting time on Earth (or, in this case, Middle Earth).
"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."Dumbledore was full of all sorts of wizardly wisdom. Here, he taught Harry and moviegoers that we aren't defined by what we can do, but rather what we have done.
"And why do we fall Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up again."A play on the classic Japanese quote, "Fall seven times, stand up eight." You don't need to be Batman to be able to pick yourself up after a setback, even if your back is broken and you're dumped into an underground prison.
"You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can't do it. You want something? Go get it. Period."Don't let anyone squash your dreams. There are plenty of haters out there. Let them hate and but don't let it deter you from pursuing that which is truly important to you. Haters can sit back and watch you fulfill your dreams.
