You were born an original. Don't die
-- John Mason
Twenty years from now you will be more
disappointed by the things that you
didn't do than by the ones you did do. So
throw off the bowlines. Sail away from
the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds
in your sails. Explore. Dream.
-- Mark Twain
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure
We are all meant to
shine, as children do.
We were born to make
manifest the glory of God
that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others.
-- Marianne Williamson
The credit belongs to those who are
actually in the arena, who strive
valiantly; who know the great
enthusiasms, the great devotions, and
spend themselves in a worthy cause;
who at the best, know the triumph of
high achievement; and who, at the
worst, if they fail, fail while daring
greatly, so that their place shall never
be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory
-- Theodore Roosevelt
We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by
learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
-- Sam Keen
The longer I live, the more I
realize the impact of attitude on
life. Attitude to me, is more
important than facts. It is more
important than past, than
education, than money, than circumstances, than failures,
than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It
is more important than appearance, gifted ability, or skill. It
will make or break a company, a church, a home.
Until one is committed,
There is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,
Always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative
(and creation), There is one elementary truth,
The ignorance of which kills countless ideas
And splendid plans:
That the moment one definitely commits
oneself, Then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
That would never otherwise have
occurred. A whole stream of events issues
from the decision,
Raising in one's favor all manner
Of unforeseen incidents and meetings,
And material assistance,
Which no man could have
dreamt ,Would have come
his way. I have learned a
deep respect for one of
"Whatever you can do, or
dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it."
-- W.H. Murray, from The Scottish Himalayan
What a different story people would have to tell if they
would adopt a definite purpose and stand by that purpose
until it had time to become an all-consuming purpose.
-- Napoleon Hill, Laws of Success
Whether you think you can or think
you can't - you are right.
-- Henry Ford
You must keep sending work
out; you must never let a
manuscript do nothing but eat
its head off in a drawer. You
send that work out again and
again, while you're working on
another one. If you have
talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if
you persist. -- Isaac Asimov
You will never stub your toe standing still. The faster you
go, the more chances there
is of stubbing your toe,
but the more chance you
have of getting somewhere.
-- Charles F. Kettering
