Quote of the Day
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day, which must be done, whether you like it or not.
James Russell Lowell
True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When a thing is done, it's done. Don't look back. Look forward to your next objective.
George C. Marshall
You've done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
I felt ashamed for what I had done. I don't have any excuses. I did what I did. I take full responsibility for myself and my actions. I wouldn't pawn this off on anybody. I'm sorry it happened. And I hurt people.
Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.
Robert A. Heinlein
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
I'm a mirror. If you're cool with me, I'm cool with you, and the exchange starts. What you see is what you reflect. If you don't like what you see, then you've done something. If I'm standoffish, that's because you are.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, 'I love you.' I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I've done my job in a world that's getting colder and colder by the day.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.

I have a great respect for incremental improvement, and I've done that sort of thing in my life, but I've always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don't know why. Because they're harder. They're much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you've completely failed.
It's sad to know I'm done. But looking back, I've got a lot of great memories.
For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like 'Blue Kentucky Girl,' by Emmylou Harris, and 'Off the Wall,' by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's 'Purple Rain' - it just can't be done!
Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I've done it thousands of times.
People can try to reinvent themselves. I don't think you can really change who you are, though, because who you are is pretty much where you came from and what you've done up to now.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
C. S. Lewis
