HOWARD BORDEN, The Bob Newhart Show, "Grand Delusion" (1977)
You know why you're not afraid to die, Spock? You're more afraid of living. Each day you stay alive is just one more day you might slip and let your human half peek out. That's it, isn't it? Insecurity...why you wouldn't know what to do with a genuine warm decent feeling.
DR. LEONARD "BONES" McCOY, Star Trek, "Bread and Circuses" (1968)
Wouldn't this be a great world if insecurity and desperation made us more attractive? If "needy" were a turn-on?
AARON ALTMAN, Broadcast News (1987)
Isn't it better to have insecurity with small artificial islands of security? It agrees better with the real state of affairs than the other way round.
HANS WINKELMAN, Riten (1969)
Stupid people are too dumb to be insecure.
DANA FAIRBANKS, The L Word, "Pilot" (2004)
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
TIMO CRUZ, Coach Carter (2005)
Jealousy doesn't show how much you love someone, it shows how insecure you are.
LINA, Summer Lovers (1982)
Nothing from that first day I saw her, and no one that has happened to me since, has ever been as frightening and as confusing. For no person I've ever known has ever done more to make me feel more sure, more insecure, more important, and less significant.
NARRATOR, Summer of '42 (1971)
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding in all of the directions it can whiz, as fast as it can go, the speed of light you know, twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is. So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure, how amazingly unlikely is your birth; and pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space, 'cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.
MAN IN PINK, The Meaning of Life (1983)
