“I gotta believe!”

From: PaRappa The Rappa

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Parappa the Rapper

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from Parappa the Rapper, one of the very first rhythm games to ever appear on the PlayStation. In the game, you control a dog named Parappa and press the buttons at the right time to keep up with the rhythm of the stage’s song.

Usually, before playing the stage, Parappa will encounter some situation where he decides that he has to learn a skill to impress his crush, Sunny Funny. Before he does go try to learn this new skill, he utters the quote, which is sort of his catchphrase.

Geek wisdom: If  you want to achieve your dreams, you have to believe you can. But, not only that, you have to work at it. Simply believing that you can doesn’t mean that you will. Parappa may only be doing small steps but those small steps are the first ones he needs to take to actually make his dreams a reality.
