Wisdom from an old man

By Nate LaClaire

One of my favorite lines from the movie Secondhand Lions is spoken by Hub, the character played by Robert Duvall:

Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most[…] 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, that 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.

I just love that quote.
