Self Preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago on 1/2/09. I was told by my mother that sometimes bad things happen to good people. I refuse to accept that.
All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.
There are two kinds of people who never amount too much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.
The cosmos is neither moral or immoral; only people are. He who would move the world must first move himself.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
A lot of successful people are risk-takers. Unless you're willing to do thatÍ to have a go, fail miserably, and have another go, success won't happen.
The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt.
The only thing I like about rich people is their money.
If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
The trouble with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes rather than with their minds.
Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people, but you can't be two people. Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people.
Without self-confidence we are as babes in the cradle. And how can we generate this imponderable quality, which
is yet so invaluable, most quickly? By thinking that other people are inferior to oneself.
Love at first sight is easy to understand; it's when two people have been looking at each other
for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people
together through the years. That is what makes a marriage last --more than passion or even sex!
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
People seldom see the halting and painful steps by which the most insignificant success is achieved.
Kissing is a means of getting two people so close together that they can't see anything wrong with each other.
Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do,cause hate in your heart will consume you too.
The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
People may doubt what you say but they will believe what you do.
Few people have the virtue to withstand the highest bidder.
For many people,
an excuse is better than an achievement because
an achievement, no matter how great,
leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future
but an excuse can last for life."
Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle.
