It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement.
If you take risks and face your fate with dignity, there is nothing you can do that makes you small; if you don't take risks, there is nothing you can do that makes you grand, nothing.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
If you can't play it on an acoustic guitar or a grand piano then it's not a song.
I think violence, cynicism, brutality and fashion are the staples of our diet. I think in the grand history of story-telling, going back to people sitting around fires, the dark side of human nature has always been very important. Movies are part of that tradition.
But I had two very special people who helped to take my style to the next level. Thank God for my first MC Cowboy and my first student Grand Wizard Theodore, and to go out after creating this art form and finding everyone jamming to it - that too was pretty scary.
I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. I lived in Grand Blanc, Michigan for a year and that's when I got involved in acting and took classes there. A manager who saw me at the agency I was at in Michigan wanted me to come out to L.A.
War has always been the grand sagacity of every spirit which has grown too inward and too profound; its curative power lies even in the wounds one receives.
I've a grand memory for forgetting.
Robert Louis Stevenson
What a grand thing, to be loved! What a grander thing still, to love!
No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
What is obnoxious about the motives of politicians - whatever those motives may be - is that politicians must announce their motives as visionary and grand.
P. J. O'Rourke

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Critics are sentinels in the grand army of letters, stationed at the corners of newspapers and reviews, to challenge every new author.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The only things in my life that compatibly exists with this grand universe are the creative works of the human spirit.
Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.
Baseball, it is said, is only a game. True. And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona. Not all holes, or games, are created equal.
I would love to sign on to do a movie if it was the right role and if it was the right script, because I would be taking time away from music to tell a big grand story, and spend all of my time and pouring all of my emotions into being someone else. So for me to do that, it would have to be a story worth telling.
Do not let your grand ambitions stand in the way of small but meaningful accomplishments.
Bryant H. McGill
Climbing K2 or floating the Grand Canyon in an inner tube; there are some things one would rather have done than do.
Marriage is this grand madness, and I think if people knew that, they would perhaps take it more seriously.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Many are ambitious of saying grand things, that is, of being grandiloquent.
When I love, I do it without counting. I give myself entirely. And each time, it is the grand love of my life.
My first year on 'SNL', I made $90,000 dollars. And I bought a red Corvette for $45,000 dollars. I'm thinking, 'I've got 45 grand left!' Taxes didn't even come into my equation. At the end of the first year of making 90 grand I was 25, 30 in the hole. We live in this baller, spend-money culture.
Life is supposed to be a series of peaks and valleys. The secret is to keep the valleys from becoming Grand Canyons.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
