There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
We don't do things we aren't good at by nature. I wouldn't play basketball because I'm only 5' 1". Find what you enjoy - whether it's racing, flying a helicopter, being a doctor, or stitching clothes together. Once you've done that, you have the passion you need.
The only safe ship in a storm is leadership.
Fast cars are my only vice.
The only thing I really love is Fiji water. That's like the only crazy request - I don't like any other water.

Henry David Thoreau

Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.
The policemen or soldiers are only a gun in the establishments hand. They make the racist secure in his racism.
Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts and only asks to be loved.
Critics only make you stronger. You have to look at what they are saying as feedback. Sometimes the feedback helps, and other times, it's just noise that can be a distraction.
