[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.

I am in shock..i missed the original showing of this episode and watched it online..I had to replay the end 3 times.. I had never heard anything so heart stopping and positive on TV to date. I have a whole new appreciation for the writers of this show..truly amazing!

I too found it to be time stopping. I paused and replayed it so I could document. The second line grabbed me. "We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny" A very empowering statement.

This has to be the most profound statement I have heard on TV in a VERY long time. I am a reading specialist and I used my cell phone voice memo to record the quote in its entirety. I am still touched when I read it. I will find its way onto a poster in my classroom!!! Thanks!

So was this entire quote from Martin Heidegger or from multiple writers?

The last one, "Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one", was said by the philosopher Martin Heidegger
