"Only the Sith deal in absolutes." Life is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while. Groucho Marx Dare to soar - how successful you are is determined by your attitude. “I am not arguing with you - I am telling you”. James Whistler. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Helen Keller Man who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait very, very long time. Chinese Proverb Life's unfairness is not irrevocable; we can help balance the scales for others, if not always for ourselves. Hubert Humphrey (also, what an awesome name!) What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others When you live in reaction, you give your power away. Then you get to experience what you gave your power to. Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean. Have the courage to act on your dreams - leave behind you the internal forces that hold you back. The trouble with troubleshooting, is that trouble sometimes shoots back. What other people think of you is none of your business. Don’t focus on the one guy who hates you. You don’t go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit. It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe. It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen. “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” Without Deviation From the Norm Progress is not Possible - Frank Zappa “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” – Edison If a tool doesn’t save you time throw it away. People do change. There’s just some stuff people will always have to figure out for themselves. The people that are your heroes don’t want to be treated like heroes. Make it easy to do the right thing Walk with your feet, not your eyes. Keep your head up.” – David Plankers You don’t learn anything until you have to fix something. "There's a special place in hell, for women who don't help each other." Madeline Albright "You can not reason a man out of a position he did not reach through reason" "Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice." "A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure." Segal's Law A goal properly set is halfway reached. Zig Ziglar Unless you read different points of view, your mind will eventually close, and you'll become a prisoner to a certain point of view that you'll never question. You only have one life to do whatever you want with. In 100 years nobody will remember the stupid mistakes you made, so make a fool of yourself while you still have the chance because if you spend all your life trying to be the coolest kid around you will never be happy with yourself. Remember, no matter what your path is, it's all about positive energy and love. It's about making things, creating, connecting with people. And as long as you can find a way to do that and be happy, that's all you need. So forge ahead and try to find that. It's not about being famous, it's not about being right or wrong. It's about just carving your own path out and finding people along the ride that see eye-to-eye with you.
