The clip Miss Riley's motivation talk from October Sky (1999)

Elsie, hold dinner for a while, will you?
I have to make a call.
I was in the store today, and I heard some talk.
Boy, it's sure hard to keep a secret in this town, isn't it?
But I guess I did a pretty good job.
You know, there's a rumor going around that I been sneaking off to Welch to see some beau.
I wish that rumor'd been true. Yeah.
They told me Hodgkin's can go into remissi�n, so I might have some time.
Is there anything I can do, Miss Riley?
You can accept my apology.
For what?
My life's work is teaching.
And I believed that if you boys won that science fair,
got scholarships, went off and did something great with your lives,
somehow my life would have counted for something.
You know what?
Sometimes you really can't listen to what anybody else says.
You just gotta listen inside.
You're not supposed to end up in those mines.
You know why? 'Cause I think you made other plans.
I want you to know something.
I'm proud of you. I am.
Whatever you choose.
