Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.
When you hold your baby in your arms the first time, and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it's a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him, but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity.
The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke. Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too.
It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I think that we all do heroic things, but hero is not a noun, it's a verb.
Robert Downey, Jr.
Falling in love and having a relationship are two different things.
Caring - about people, about things, about life - is an act of maturity.
The secret of getting things done is to act!
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
People give one another things that can't be gift wrapped.
You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
Or heritage and ideals, our code and standards - the things we live by and teach our children - are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
George S. Patton
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
All things excellent are as difficult as they are rare.
I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours. And I was always drawing racing cars and rockets and spaceships and planes, things that were very fast that would take me away.
It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.
I have certain things that I stand for, certain things that I believe in, and if you don't like it and you tell me to go to hell, I think that's your God-given right as a fan. It's one of those deals where I'm that one guy who is outside of that realm of good guy, bad guy. I'm just me, and it elicits a response both positive and negative.
To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.
Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means. It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Old age is the most unexpected of all things that happen to a man.
Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.
I think music is the greatest art form that exists, and I think people listen to music for different reasons, and it serves different purposes. Some of it is background music, and some of it is things that might affect a person's day, if not their life, or change an attitude. The best songs are the ones that make you feel something.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
