Quote of the Day
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Francis of Assisi
Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.
If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
You cry and you scream and you stomp your feet and you shout. You say, 'You know what? I'm giving up, I don't care.' And then you go to bed and you wake up and it's a brand new day, and you pick yourself back up again.
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.
Always live in the ugliest house on the street - then you don't have to look at it.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.
My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.
I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
I'm a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.
If we desire a society of peace, then we cannot achieve such a society through violence. If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society. If we desire a society that is democratic, then democracy must become a means as well as an end.
My grandmother took me to church on Sunday all day long, every Sunday into the night. Then Monday evening was the missionary meeting. Tuesday evening was usher board meeting. Wednesday evening was prayer meeting. Thursday evening was visit the sick. Friday evening was choir practice. I mean, and at all those gatherings, we sang.
Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.
If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
