"Too young to die. Too drunk to live"
Renee McCall of the Daily Express on the passing of Brendan Behan
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy
My advice to you concerning applause is this: enjoy it but never quite believe it.
If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life.
Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not. George Bernard Shaw
My all time fave
In Peter Pan:
Tinkerbell: You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I'll always love you, Peter Pan. That's where I'll be waiting
Martin Luther King:
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
I refuse to accept the idea that man can not influence the unfolding events that surround him.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity
this is not a quote but good to keep on your mind... try to memorize it like I did... hope you like it....
When things go wrong as sometimes they will
And the road you’re trudging seems all up hill
When the debts are high
And the funds are low
And you want to smile
But you have to sigh
When care is pressing you a bit
Rest, if you must but don’t you quit
Life is a queerer with twist and turns
As every one of us sometimes learn
And many persons turn about
When they mighty have won they struck it out
Don’t give up though the face seems slow
You may succeed in another blow
Success is a failure turn inside out
In the silver tint of the cloud of doubt
So stick to the fight with your hardest hit
It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit
The definition of success--To laugh much; to win respect of intelligent persons and the affections of children; to earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give one's self; to leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition.; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm, and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived--this is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I actually have two. One from Abraham Lincoln: Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
And this one: Never be afraid to do something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the titanic
"The difference between successful people and those who aren't is a willingness to work very, very hard."...
Honestly though, the person that quoted Emerson should get best answer...that was an amazing quote
Here are three that I like...
"The unexamined life is not worth living."
Socrates (469–399 B.C.), Greek philosopher
"Whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger."
German philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"
The Apostle Paul in Phillipians 4:13 (speaking to Christians)
When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. - Audre Lorde
Everything happens for a reason.
Some people are in a worse situation than I am in.
