Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.
T. S. Eliot
All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
I really believe I've been a good person. Not perfect - forget about perfect - but just learning by what I was taught and living by my own values. I might have stepped on a few ants - and a few other things as well - but I've never hurt anybody.
Kiri Te Kanawa
It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.
In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

I don't pay attention to the number of birthdays. It's weird when I say I'm 53. It just is crazy that I'm 53. I think I'm very immature. I feel like a kid. That's why my back goes out all the time, because I completely forget I can't do certain things anymore - like doing the plank for 10 minutes.
It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one's appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.
I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.
Edgar Allan Poe
Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
Edward de Bono
We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us. We can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we're able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves.
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically.
Motherhood has most definitely changed me and my life. It's so crazy how drastic even the small details change - in such an amazing way. Even silly things, like the fact that all of my pictures on my cell phone used to be of me at photo shoots - conceited, I know! - but now every single picture on my phone is of Mason.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
John F. Kennedy
