A positive attitude can really make dreams come true - it did for me.
Everything is very black and white for me. I don't really like playing mind games.
I really just want to be warm yellow light that pours over everyone I love.
When I was 14, I thought I looked terrible. I wore these typical Slavic shoes with metal bottoms so you could always hear me coming and this really ugly princess skirt and blouse with the top button closed. I had a boy haircut, a baby face covered with pimples, and a really big nose.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
I look at my father. He is one of my heroes. He is such an incredible, classy man. He was such a great father and such a great husband in so many ways, and we lived through some pretty tough times losing my mom. When I see all that he did, I think, 'Wow, that's a really wonderful man.'
I have no regrets. I don't believe in looking back. What I am proudest of? Working really hard... and achieving as much as I could.
I really love to ride my motorcycle. When I want to just get away and be by myself and clear my head, that's what I do.
All we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen.
And the relationships that happen become so intense, deep, involved and complex and really hard to say goodbye to. The hardest part of the show is saying goodbye when it's all done. It really breaks you.
I spend several days at a time without enough sleep. At first, normal activities become annoying. When you are too tired to eat, you really need some sleep. A few days later, things become strange. Loud noises become louder and more startling, familiar sounds become unfamiliar, and life reinvents itself as a surrealist dream.
I'm really exciting. I smile a lot, I win a lot, and I'm really sexy.
I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes. You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don't have a problem going to sleep at night.
You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.
I think Islam has been hijacked by the idea that all Muslims are terrorists; that Islam is about hate, about war, about jihad - I think that hijacks the spirituality and beauty that exists within Islam. I believe in allowing Islam to be seen in context and in its entirety and being judged on what it really is, not what you think it is.
What is a soul? It's like electricity - we don't really know what it is, but it's a force that can light a room.
To me, it really seems visible today that ethics is not something exterior to the economy, which, as technical matter, could function on its own; rather, ethics is an interior principle of the economy itself, which cannot function if it does not take account of the human values of solidarity and reciprocal responsibility.
Pope Benedict XVI
It's so warm now, and Thanksgiving came so early - is it just me, or does it not really feel like Ramadan?
Kids go to school and college and get through, but they don't seem to really care about using their minds. School doesn't have the kind of long term positive impact that it should.
Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it.
We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands.
Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It's about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others' success, and then standing back and letting them shine.
People think that I'm mean because I'm quiet, and I don't really go out places or because I don't really say too much. On the other hand, people think that I'm soft because I may not handle myself the way other people handle themselves. That's just not me. They don't know my background or none of that stuff.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
