Things don't just happen in this world of arising and passing away. We don't live in some kind of crazy, accidental universe. Things happen according to certain laws, laws of nature. Laws such as the law of karma, which teaches us that as a certain seed gets planted, so will that fruit be.
With ideas it is like with dizzy heights you climb: At first they cause you discomfort and you are anxious to get down, distrustful of your own powers; but soon the remoteness of the turmoil of life and the inspiring influence of the altitude calm your blood; your step gets firm and sure and you begin to look - for dizzier heights.
I know that campaigns can seem small, and even silly. Trivial things become big distractions. Serious issues become sound bites. And the truth gets buried under an avalanche of money and advertising. If you're sick of hearing me approve this message, believe me - so am I.
Vision gets the dreams started. Dreaming employs your God-given imagination to reinforce the vision. Both are part of something I believe is absolutely necessary to building the life of a champion, a winner, a person of high character who is consistently at the top of whatever game he or she is in.
One of the reasons inequality gets so deep in this country is that everyone wants to be rich. That's the American ideal. Poor people don't like talking about poverty because even though they might live in the projects surrounded by other poor people and have, like, ten dollars in the bank, they don't like to think of themselves as poor.
Everyone gets dumped and everyone gets hurt and there's karma to love in regards to what you've done to other people.
Marina and the Diamonds
When my body gets to the point where I can no longer function or feel gratitude, then I'll leave it and become grateful again. But until then, I will appreciate what I have and not whine about what I don't have. I will feel blessed by life and the opportunity to help others see that they are blessed, too.
It's always funny until someone gets hurt. Then it's just hilarious.
The common question that gets asked in business is, 'why?' That's a good question, but an equally valid question is, 'why not?'
Greed has been with human beings forever. We have a number of things in our species that you would call 'the dark side,' and greed is one of them. If you don't put certain structures in place or restrictions on those parts of our being that come from that dark place, then it gets out of control.
Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck.
It's a funny thing that when a man hasn't anything on earth to worry about, he goes off and gets married.
When you pay attention to boredom it gets unbelievably interesting.
No family gets rich from earning the minimum wage. In fact, the current minimum wage does not even lift a family out of poverty.
You need to be able to manage stress because hard times will come, and a positive outlook is what gets you through.
If baking is any labor at all, it's a labor of love. A love that gets passed from generation to generation.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
The early bird gets the worm. The early worm... gets eaten.
Norman Ralph Augustine
By the time we see that climate change is really bad, your ability to fix it is extremely limited... The carbon gets up there, but the heating effect is delayed. And then the effect of that heat on the species and ecosystem is delayed. That means that even when you turn virtuous, things are actually going to get worse for quite a while.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
Hunter S. Thompson
Music drives you. It wakes you up, it gets you pumping. And, at the end of the day, the correct tune will chill you down.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen.
I have been so great in boxing they had to create an image like Rocky, a white image on the screen, to counteract my image in the ring. America has to have its white images, no matter where it gets them. Jesus, Wonder Woman, Tarzan and Rocky.
It just seems to me that the world's kind of a mess, and the more messy it gets, the more interested I am in escapist fare. Having a good time is something that isn't about the war in Iraq or the Asian flu or the Kyoto protocol - things that are horribly depressing to consider in our real lives. I'm eager to get away from them.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
