If I had the opportunity to speak to a young immigrant girl that just arrived to the U.S. the advice I would have for her would be: ask, speak, search; because there are opportunities out there. And, know that you aren't the only immigrant or the last to come to this country. Many that have come before you have succeeded. It is possible.
I would say colonialism is a wonderful thing. It spread civilization to Africa. Before it they had no written language, no wheel as we know it, no schools, no hospitals, not even normal clothing.
If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you.
It is a wretched taste to be gratified with mediocrity when the excellent lies before us.
By 'flat' I did not mean that the world is getting equal. I said that more people in more places can now compete, connect and collaborate with equal power and equal tools than ever before. That's why an Indian in Bangalore can take care of the office work of American doctors or read the X-rays of German hospitals.
Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
William Butler Yeats
Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour of reason grows.
Before you get a dog, you can't quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can't imagine living any other way.
Tomorrow morning before we depart, I intend to land and see what can be found in the neighborhood.
You know what a champion is? A champion is someone who's ready when the gong rings - not just before, not just after - but when it rings.
It is not good to cross the bridge before you get to it.
Life is short. I'm 47 years old. I've got 10 years to go where I can be the best I can be. I want those 10 years to be precious, not like before, cranking two or three movies a year. I've made a ton of movies in my life, but so what?
Jean-Claude Van Damme
Just because something's legible doesn't means it communicates. More importantly, it doesn't mean it communicates the right thing. So, what is the message sent before somebody actually gets into the material? And I think that's sometimes an overlooked area.
Every time I plant a seed, He say kill it before it grow, he say kill it before they grow.
Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.
The God who existed before any religion counts on you to make the oneness of the human family known and celebrated.
Before I do anything, I think, well what hasn't been seen. Sometimes, that turns out to be something ghastly and not fit for society. And sometimes that inspiration becomes something that's really worthwhile.
I'd love to do well on a big weekend with people watching and cheering, of course. But it's not fair to create an expectation level before I know what is realistic. I want to finish as well as possible. Is that top 20? Top 15? Top 25? You just have to play it by ear.
A lot of people give up just before they're about to make it. You know you never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one.
Low-cost, high-grade coal, oil and natural gas - the backbone of the Industrial Revolution - will be a distant memory by 2050. Much higher-cost remnants will still be available, but they will not be able to drive our growth, our population and, most critically, our food supply as before.
Before we can forgive one another, we have to understand one another.
In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
I think setting a goal, getting a visual image of what it is you want. You've got to see what it is you want to achieve before you can pursue it.
During my days of deepest grief, in all of my shock, sorrow and struggle, I sat at the feet of God. I literally spent hours each day reading God's word, meditating on scripture and praying. I intentionally spent a significant amount of time being still before God.
Always think twice before you decide to do anything for a film. It may seem like a career-changing idea, but think of your family and your future before doing anything risky. Train properly, because looking strong and being strong are two different things.
John F. Kennedy
