2. Great power comes with great responsibility
Even though we may be more powerful than someone else, that does not give us the right to exploit or harass them. We should instead use our financial, physical, and mental power to help the poor, exploited, and destitute.
3. Do not chase your love, instead chase your ambitions
Peter loves MJ more than anything, but he cannot have her in his world because of his dedication to his fight against criminals.
Peter would surely regret sacrificing his ambition to her since her insecurity will forever make her future uncertain.
While you may find love by choosing her over your dreams and goals, you will never be content. Chase your ambition.
Favorite Quotes From Tobey Maguire
There are many things that I would like to do. I want to work alongside great directors, great actors, and great scripts. There’s no reason to me do less than that. I’m 24 years old, have no children, don’t need a lot of money, and don’t want to be famous.
I try to maintain an open mind and believe that I don’t know what I’m doing. I don’t get so frustrated that I start beating myself up. But I do go to work thinking that there is still much to learn. That attitude I have now will hopefully still be there 30 years later.
Fame is a way for me to test my own self-worth. Some strange things can happen, you know. I have seen many strange things in the lives of people who are just trying to live their life.
