Ultimately, man should not ask what is the meaning of life, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life, and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to the live he can only respond by being responsible.
The difference between the impossible and possible lies in a man's determination.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.
An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear.
It is hard to fail, but it is worse to have never tried.
I have a theory that if you give 100% all the time, somehow things will work out in the end.
You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
The great question is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with failure.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy shit, what a ride!'.
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
Sir Edmund Hillary
If you want to succeed, stop reading inspirational quotes and get to work.
If you’re focused and passionate and driven, you can achieve anything you want in life. I honestly believe that. Because you’ll fuckin’ figure it out. I never took lessons to play drums. I just figured it out. And I never took lessons to play guitar—maybe a few—but I just listened to Beatles records.
When presented with a situation that requires action, the best thing to do is the right thing. The second best thing to do is something. The worst thing to do is nothing.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Minds are like parachutes - they only function while open.
I am not the product of my circumstances. I am the product of my decisions.
Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.
John F. Kennedy
I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.
I've lost almost 300 games.
26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.
I've failed over and over and over again in my life.
And that is why I succeed.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
I've learned over the years that when you have really good people you don't have to baby them. By expecting them to do great things, you can get them to do great things.
In theory, there is no difference between theory in practice. In practice, there is.
Failing to learn is learning to fail
"The Mental Game of Baseball"
The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Basically, when you get to my age, you'll really measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you. I know people who have a lot of money, and they get testimonial dinners and they get hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them. If you get to my age in life and nobody thinks well of you, I don't care how big your bank account is, your life is a disaster. That's the ultimate test of how you have lived your life. The trouble with love is that you can't buy it ... The only way to get love is to be lovable... The more you give love away, the more you get.
