Hayley Mills, child actor (& teenage and adult actor), who starred in lots of films I saw in my childhood and youth (eg Pollyanna, The Parent Trap, Summer Magic).
“Not all of us can choose what we give up. The things we love are taken or are never ours at all. If we’re lucky, life is defined not by what we let go, but what we let in: friendship and kind words, frailty and hope.”

Harriet Tubman, an African-American woman who escaped from slavery and then made thirteen return trips to free other slaves using a network called the Underground Railroad.
"I am,” said Aslan. "But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.”
