Auggie: You can learn a lot about people from their shoes.
Dad: If someone pushes you, push back. Don't be afraid of anyone.
Auggie: Why are we whispering?
Dad: Because I'm afraid of mom.
Teacher: When given choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.
Mom: You are not ugly, Auggie.
Auggie: You just have to say that because you're my mom.
Mom: Oh, because I'm your mom, it doesn't count?
Mom: Because I'm your mom, it counts the most because I know you the most. You are not ugly and anyone who
cares to know you will see that.
Mom: We all have marks on our face. I have this wrinkle here from your first surgery. I have these wrinkles here from your last surgery. This is the map that shows us where we're going. And this is the map that shows us where we've been. And it's never ever ugly.
Sister: You can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
Teacher: Your deed are your monuments.
Principal: Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right using of strength. He/She is the greatest whose
strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Auggie: Maybe if you knew what other people were thinking, we'd know that no one's ordinary. And we all deserve a
standing ovation at least once in our lives.
Teacher: Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.
