  I was born into it and there was nothing I could do about it. It was there, like air or food, or any other element. The only question with wealth is what you do with it. – John D. Rockefeller

Blessed is he who carries within himself a god and an ideal and who obeys it – an ideal of art, of science, or gospel virtues. Therein lie the springs of great thoughts and great actions. – Louis Pasteur

Talent isn’t enough. You need motivation-and persistence, too: what Steinbeck called a blend of faith and arrogance. When you’re young, plain old poverty can be enough, along with an insatiable hunger for recognition. You have to have that feeling of “I’ll show them.” If you don’t have it, don’t become a writer. – Leon Uris

  The most destructive element in the human mind is fear. Fear creates aggressiveness; aggressiveness engenders hostility; hostility engenders fear-a disastrous circle. – Dorothy Thompson

Sometimes we look so intently toward the pinnacle that we stumble over the steps leading to it. Development begins just where you are. – Mrs. Herman Stanley

  Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex; you thought of nothing else if you didn’t have it and thought of other things if you did. – James Baldwin

The highest courage is not to be found in the instinctive acts of men who risk their lives to save a friend or slay a foe; the physical fearlessness of a moment or an hour is not to be compared with immolation of months or years for the sake of wisdom or art. – Joseph […]

The man who will not execute his resolutions when they are fresh upon him can have no hope from them afterwards; they will be dissipated, lost and perish in the hurry and scurry of the world, or sunk in the slough of indolence. – Maria Edgeworth

I really don’t think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don’t mind the failure but I can’t imagine that I’d forgive myself if I didn’t try. -Nikki Giovanni

All my growth and development led me to believe that if you really do the right thing, and if you play by the rules, and if you’ve got good enough, solid judgment and common sense, that you’re going to be able to do whatever you want to do with your life. Barbara Jordan

We accept the verdict of the past until the need for change cries out loudly enough to force upon us a choice between the comforts of further inertia and the irksomeness of action. – Louis L’Amour

If we have not achieved our early dreams, we must either find new ones or see what we can salvage from the old. If we have accomplished what we set out to do in our youth, we need not weep like Alexander the Great that we have no more worlds to conquer. – Rosalynn Carter

Once you get rid of the idea that you must please other people before you please yourself, and you begin to follow your own instincts-only then can you be successful. You become more satisfied, and when you are, other people tend to be satisfied by what you do. – Raquel Welch

It is arrogance to expect that life will always be music…. Harmony, like a following breeze at sea, is the exception. In a world where most things wind up broken or lost, our lot is to tack and tune. – Harvey Oxenhorn

We are the same people as we were at three, six, ten or twenty years old. More noticeably so, perhaps, at six or seven, because we were not pretending so much then. – Agatha Christie

Everything has to be taken on trust; truth is only that which is taken to be true. It’s the currency of living. There may be nothing behind it, but it doesn’t make any difference so long as it is honoured. – Tom Stoppard

Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away. – Marcus Aurelius

“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry – ALL FORMS OF FEAR – are caused by too much future and not enough presence, guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness and – ALL FORMS OF NON FORGIVENESS – are caused by too much past and not enough presence” – Eckhart Tolle

A Dream Within A Dream Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow– You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is […]
