    my two favorite will smith quotes weren’t listed so I’m going to say them.

    1.) The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity Kitai. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.

    2.) Life isn’t how many breaths you take, but it’s the moments that take your breath away.

    these two quotes are my favorite will smith quotes. they have inspired me the most too.

I remember watching a youtube video about him explaining the story of his father and how he made him and his brother build a brick wall from nothing. It was truly inspirational. I think Will Smith is humble and a hard worker, and that is why he is so successful. I loved every last one of these quotes by him. Thanks for sharing!
