Quote of the Day
- Page 4
Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining - it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn't solve any problems.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself.
If you're happy, if you're feeling good, then nothing else matters.
If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.
Baseball gives every American boy a chance to excel, not just to be as good as someone else but to be better than someone else. This is the nature of man and the name of the game.
If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you.
If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.
I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we're supposed to make. We waste so much time making decisions based on someone else's idea of our happiness - what will make you a good citizen or a good wife or daughter or actress. Nobody says, 'Just be happy - go be a cobbler or go live with goats.'
No matter how good you think you are as a leader, my goodness, the people around you will have all kinds of ideas for how you can get better. So for me, the most fundamental thing about leadership is to have the humility to continue to get feedback and to try to get better - because your job is to try to help everybody else get better.
Jim Yong Kim
Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion.
Hold up a mirror and ask yourself what you are capable of doing, and what you really care about. Then take the initiative - don't wait for someone else to ask you to act.
The world is full of people who have dreams of playing at Carnegie Hall, of running a marathon, and of owning their own business. The difference between the people who make it across the finish line and everyone else is one simple thing: an action plan.
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
Booker T. Washington
The world is a complicated place, and there's a lot of division between people. The performing arts tend to unify people in a way nothing else does.
At present, our country needs women's idealism and determination, perhaps more in politics than anywhere else.
Religious tolerance is something we should all practice; however, there have been more persecution and atrocities committed in the name of religion and religious freedom than anything else.
You can either be informed and your own rulers, or you can be ignorant and have someone else, who is not ignorant, rule over you.
It's something we, guys, have all done. Made tapes for girls, trying to impress them, to meet them on a shared plane of aesthetics. Read them someone else's poetry because they do poetry better than you could do it, because you're too awkward to do it.
What you need, above all else, is a love for your subject, whatever it is. You've got to be so deeply in love with your subject that when curve balls are thrown, when hurdles are put in place, you've got the energy to overcome them.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The richest people in the world look for and build networks; everyone else looks for work.
The way a musical can make us feel is unlike anything else, in song and particularly in dance. I think people fly through plate-glass windows when they get shot because movies don't have dance scenes any more. This is what we do instead.
The newly decorated theatres produced things like car parks and restaurants, so you could have a good night out, quite cheaply without all that bother of having to go somewhere else.
