A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
- Winston Churchill
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
- Steve Jobs
Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.
- Henry David Thoreau
For what it’s worth - it’s never too late … to be whoever you want to be … I hope you have a life you’re proud of - if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Life is like a camera:
Focus on what’s important,
Capture the good times,
Develop from the negatives,
And if things don’t work out, just take another shot.
Learning what you don’t want to do is the next best thing to figuring out what you do want to do.
- Anderson Cooper
Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
- Bertrand Russell
Reason well from the beginning and then there will never be any need to look back with confusion and doubt.
- Tenzin Gyatso (14th Dalai Lama)
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
