There are limits on what a president can achieve or do, but the expectations are so great.
People without children do have the freedom to do things that caring parents with dependent kids can't - to work long hours, to travel frequently, to relocate, and to do all these things on short notice if necessary. In return, they can achieve positions that devoted parents can't.
My approach is always to try to be straight with people, especially about what my party can achieve.
To achieve great things we must live as though we were never going to die.
Luc de Clapiers
Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.
Diplomacy is, perhaps, one element of the U.S. government that should not be subject to the demands of 'open government'; whenever it works, it is usually because it is done behind closed doors. But this may be increasingly hard to achieve in the age of Twittering bureaucrats.
I'm different than another person who wants to lay back and do nothing for rest of the life and talk nonsense on ESPN... I will not do that. I want to achieve something else.
If you have ambition, you might not achieve anything, but without ambition, you are almost certain not to achieve anything.
I learned a great lesson early on, even before I was really an actor, from that movie 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' that John Hughes made: that you could make a movie that's really, really, really, really funny, and sometimes you can still achieve... making the audience feel very deep emotions as well.
Power? It's like a Dead Sea fruit. When you achieve it, there is nothing there.

I'm a Christian. I want the world of justice and equality. This is the only way to achieve peace.

Enrique Pena Nieto
It is easier to achieve a desired result in short pieces.

She stays in the marriage as a way to serve both her personal ambition as well as their shared ambition to achieve ever-greater positions of power and influence.
You learn your lessons from the mistakes you make, not the things you achieve.
The whole purpose was to say that it doesn't have to be a zero sum. It's not the environment or jobs. You can have both. You can help the auto industry achieve that if you have investment in plants.
Why am I not feminist? Maybe because I come from a country where my mother ruled my life. I never felt in any way that I couldn't achieve what I want.
From a personal perspective, I am disappointed that we have yet to really achieve a full understanding of the origins of life on Earth. What was the spark that, billions of years ago, kickstarted the process of evolution that has brought us life as we know it today? I hope that we will get some answers to that in my lifetime.

James Lane Allen
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
