Quote of the Day
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.
Norman Ralph Augustine
It's easy to get negative because you get beat down. You go through a few disappointments and it's easy to stay in that negative frame of mind. Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is a whole cliche, but your attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life.
The game has its ups and downs, but you can never lose focus of your individual goals and you can't let yourself be beat because of lack of effort.
You just can't beat the person who never gives up.
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.
Fighting means you could lose. Bullying means you can't. A bully wants to beat somebody; he doesn't want to fight somebody.
Usually I start with a beat, I start making a beat, and my producer side is making the beat. And on a good day, my rapper side will jump in and start the writing process - maybe come up with a hook or start a verse. Sometimes it just happens like that. A song like 'Lights Please' happens like that.
I was not popular in school, and I was definitely not a ladies' man. And I had a very painful adolescence, because it was all very strange to me. It wasn't like I got beat up, but the humiliation and isolation, and the existential 'God, I exist, and nobody cares' of being a teenager were extremely pronounced for me.
I've always been an underdog. I feel like I beat the odds.
A bad system will beat a good person every time.

It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
Opportunity does not knock, it presents itself when you beat down the door.
The writing process, the way I go about it is I do whatever the beat feels like, whatever the beat is telling me to do. Usually when the beat comes on, I think of a hook or the subject I want to rap about almost instantly. Within four, eight bars of it playing I'm just like, 'Oh, OK. This is what I wanna do'.
I stood up as best I could to their disgusting stupidity and brutality, but I did not, of course, manage to beat them at their own game. It was a fight to the bitter end, one in which I was not defending ideals or beliefs but simply my own self.
Hard work pays off - hard work beats talent any day, but if you're talented and work hard, it's hard to be beat.
Robert Griffin III

Robert Louis Stevenson
The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.
Just because you eat doesn't mean you eat smart. It's hard to beat a $1.99 wing pack of three at a fast-food restaurant - it's so cheap - but that wing pack isn't feeding anyone, it's just pushing hunger back an hour.
As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.
The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow.
We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.
Booker T. Washington

I believe it is in my nature to dance by virtue of the beat of my heart, the pulse of my blood and the music in my mind.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
