It's almost like the better I do, the more my feeling of inadequacy actually increases, because I'm just going, 'Any moment, someone's going to find out I'm a total fraud, and that I don't deserve any of what I've achieved. I can't possibly live up to what everyone thinks I am and what everyone's expectations of me are.'
For me, romance isn't an over-the-top act. It's someone offering to help and to support me. Or if that person thinks I'm making the wrong decision, he'll tell me. I want him to be honest, because being that honest takes a lot of guts.
I have been judged to be a pessimist but what abyss of ignorance and low egoism is not hidden in one who thinks that Man is the god of himself and that his future can only be triumphant?
A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.
Many a man thinks he is buying pleasure, when he is really selling himself to it.
There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.
Today, the biggest challenge we must meet is the one we present to ourselves. To not become a nation that places entitlement ahead of accomplishment.

The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently.
To really change the way society thinks, you have to give your entire being to it until there's nothing left.
What's nice about having an engineering degree is everybody thinks you are smart.

I'm one of those people that thinks the world changes in smaller and in more mysterious ways than a lot of people like to think.

Robert G. Allen
