Great quotes from Stan Lee
"Life is never completely without its challenges."
"You know, my motto is 'Excelsior.' That's an old word that means 'upward and onward to greater glory.' It's on the seal of the state of New York. Keep moving forward, and if it's time to go, it's time. Nothing lasts forever."
"We live in a diverse society - in fact, a diverse world - and we must learn to live in peace and with respect for each other."
"It's totally irrational, patently insane to condemn an entire race - to despise an entire nation - to vilify an entire religion."
"I have always included minority characters in my stories, often as heroes. We live in a diverse society - in fact, a diverse world, and we must learn to live in peace and with respect for each other."
"With great power comes great responsibility."
"I've been the luckiest man in the world because I've had friends, and to have the right friends is everything: people you can depend on, people who tell you the truth if you ask something."
" My mother was the greatest mother in the world. She thought I was the greatest thing on two feet. I'd come home with a little composition I had written at school, and she'd look at it and say, 'It's wonderful! You're another Shakespeare!' I always assumed I could do anything. It really is amazing how much that has to do with your attitude."
"I don't analyze things too closely. I find the more you analyze, the more you get away from spontaneity. I have only one rule: I just want to write a story that would interest me - that's the only criterion I have. Am I eager to see how it ends? If these characters really existed, would I want to see what happens to them? … If I like something, there are bound to be millions of people who like it, too. And if they don't, shame on them."
"The power of prayer is still the greatest ever known in this endless eternal universe."
