"The need for change bulldozed a road down the middle of my mind." --Maya Angelou "The dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists, well without the dreamers, they might never get off the ground!" --Modern Family ”A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” --Oscar Wilde 1888 “Your Time is limited. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life”. -– Steve Jobs "Melancholy is incompatible with bicycling." -- James E. Starrs The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered, “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” --Dalai Lama “Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality, the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.” —Lou Dorfsman "Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it." --Mark Twain Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.” --James Dean What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others. -- Pericles The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time. --Mark Twain Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm. But the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it. Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves. --T. S. Eliot I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious. --Albert Einstein "Now I suddenly feel weak... like a child or something something without bones... like a jellyfish.. oMg I'm an invertabrate!" --Craig Ivey There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts. --Elizabeth Gilbert A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave. --Mahatma Gandhi The whole thing about matrimony: we fall in love with a personality but we must live with the character. When you give and don't expect anything back that's love. But if you give and expect a return it's an investment. Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. -- H. L. Mencken To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage. -- Lao Tzu Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. Four things a woman should know: How to look like a girl, How to act like a lady, How to think like a man, And how to work like a dog. I put my hand in yours, and together we can do what we could never do alone. No longer is there a sense of hopelessness, no longer must we each depend upon our own unsteady willpower. We are all together now, reaching out our hands for power and strength greater than ours, and as we join hands, we find love and understanding beyond our wildest dreams. Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can. --John Wesley The greatest results in life are usually attained by common sense and perseverance. --O Feltham Want to change the world? Push everyone you know to work within their intersection. Mentor people to realize their genuine interests, skills, and to capitalize on even the smallest opportunities that surround them. When it comes to your own career, make every decision with a constant eye for work in the intersection. Failing to plan means planning to fail. The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going. --David Jordan Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom. --Thomas Jefferson If there is a will, there's a way. Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture. --Norman Vincent Peale We either make ourselves #miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. --Carlos Casteneda You gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face. You must do that which we think we cannot. --Eleanor Roosevelt A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities. --William Arthur Ward
