Monday Quotable

The Oscars aired last night and there were many touching speeches. It’s always nice to see someone reaching a high point in their career and experiencing real joy. In honor of that, I thought I’d do something a little different with this week’s Monday Quotable.  Here are my favorite lines from two of the top speeches (IMHO) of the night.

“No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.” –Lupita Nyong’o

“He [God] has shown me that it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates.” –Matthew McConaughey

Jared Leto also gave a touching, beautiful speech. I just couldn’t find a specific quote to apply to the everyday. That said, his tribute to his mom and brother speak to how we should love our families and his willingness to stand on behalf of a great cause really inspired me to go to the mat for the things I believe in. You can see all three speeches below. 




I'm also including Steve McQueen's speech for 12 Years a Slave for the jump alone. The joy in that is infectious. Enjoy and Happy Monday!
