Passion + Persistence = Possibility
Nothing is as important as passion. No matter
what you want to do with your life, be passionate. The world doesn't need
any more grey. On the other hand we can't get enough color. Mediocrity
is nobody's goal and perfection shouldn't be either. We'll never be perfect.
Each one of you has something no one else has,
or has ever had: your fingerprints, your brain, your heart. Be an individual.
Be unique. Stand out. Make noise. Make someone notice. That's the power
Take time. Stop. Look around you. Freeze the moment.
Use your eyes & your mind to take pictures - mental pictures. Store
the images like photographs in your head & your heart. Look around
and remember this moment. At the end of the day, it's not the person with
the most toys who wins - it's the person with most memories. Because,
when you are sitting in your rocking chair at the young age of 100, those
memories are gonna be like old friends. Someone you can call on to make
you smile. And the more of those old friends that come around the better.
Believe in love. Believe in magic. Hell, believe in Santa Clause.
Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you
don't, who will?
Map out your future - but do it in pencil. The
road ahead is as long as you make it. Make it worth the trip.
Be honest and don't follow fads and fashion. Do
what you do and do it well.
Even if you win a rat-race, you're still a rat.
Don't get too comfortable with who you are at
any given time - you may miss the opportunity to become who you want to
It's not "the money is the root of all evil"
- It's "the LOVE of money is the root of all evil".
Grow up, but don't grow old and live while you're
It's easy to say 'I love you' to someone, but
it's more meaningful to thank someone for loving you.
Each step I take ain't worth the ground that I
walk on if we don't walk in our own way.
Not all who wander are lost.
Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
There's no 25th hour in the day, so don't look
Miracles happen everyday - change your perception
of what a miracle is and you will see them all around you.
I went to see the preacher to teach me how to
pray. He looked at me and smiled, and that preacher turned away. He said,
if you want tell him something you don't have to fold your hands. Say
it with your heart, your soul and believe it, and say Amen...
Only God would know the reasons,
but I bet he must have had a plan.
Don't choose to be something you are not, because
you're gonna be a day late.
There isn't anything that can't be accomplished.
We've got something that will never die: our dreams,
Keep the faith.
Stick to your guns, fight hard 'til the battle
I could take a hit, but I ain't gonna take the
Close your eyes and you will see
that you are all you really need.
Without love, there's nothing without love
Nothing else can get you through the night
Nothing else feels right without love.
Baby blind love is true.
It's hard to hold on when there's no one to lean
It's hard to be strong when there's no one to dream on...
There are wars that can't be won.
Each day you know you're dying from the cradle
to the grave.
Surviving is living to die in fear.
You can't win 'til you're not afraid to lose.
No man is an island.
Remember every new beginning is some beginning's end.
Everyone's a miracle in their own way.
Remember that you're perfect; God makes no mistakes.
