Quote of the Day

Success is getting and achieving what you want. Happiness is wanting and being content with what you get.
My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.
The way I pick who gets caked is generally by who shows me the most energy and is screaming for it. I still can't help but ask myself... should I stop caking people? Will that stop the haters from hating? Stop giving the trolls more content to target me with?
I am happy and content with and within myself.
What really decides consumers to buy or not to buy is the content of your advertising, not its form.
'True Blood' is shot on film. It's more like a movie, and they take more days to shoot it, plus it has an hour of content. 'The Good Wife' is network. They're shooting on HD. It moves quicker and they only have forty minutes of content instead of a full hour. Not to mention the difference of shooting, you know, rated-R stuff!
The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us; and I for one must be content to remain an agnostic.
The theological virtue of hope is the patient and trustful willingness to live without closure, without resolution, and still be content and even happy because our Satisfaction is now at another level, and our Source is beyond ourselves.
Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
The real leader has no need to lead - he is content to point the way.
Thoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind.
I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.
Be content with what you are, and wish not change; nor dread your last day, nor long for it.
I think it's important that people think about what they are doing and that includes what they are eating. I am 61 now and attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed radically since I was a student. People change their notion of what is responsible. They will increasingly ask about the carbon content of their food.
Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen.
To be content with little is hard; to be content with much, impossible.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
The true measure of a career is to be able to be content, even proud, that you succeeded through your own endeavors without leaving a trail of casualties in your wake.
If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.
Obviously one must hold oneself responsible for the evil impulses of one's dreams. In what other way can one deal with them? Unless the content of the dream rightly understood is inspired by alien spirits, it is part of my own being.
You can be still and still moving. Content even in your discontent.
Music should probably provide answers in terms of lyrical content, and giving people a sense of togetherness and oneness, as opposed to being alone in their thoughts and dilemmas or regrets or happiness or whatever.
I get that racism exists, but it's not a catalyst for my content. I don't need to talk about race to have material. My style of comedy is more self-deprecating. I think that makes me more relatable. When you deal with 'topics' - race, white versus black - you're not separating from the pack. You're doing what everybody else is doing.
The 'serial kisser' tag that has been thrust on to me is a lame stereotype. It irritates me. Yes, there is sexual content in my movies, and I have never been apologetic about doing bold scenes. But it's not fair to tag me this way because that can be very stifling.
John F. Kennedy
