Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
C. S. Lewis

What winning is to me is not giving up, is no matter what's thrown at me, I can take it. And I can keep going.
Opening day. All you have to do is say the words and you feel the shutters thrown wide, the room air out, the light pour in. In baseball, no other day is so pure with possibility. No scores yet, no losses, no blame or disappointment. No hangover, at least until the game's over.

Lawrence M. Krauss

Being healthy is a complete lifestyle for me. It allows my brain to function at a very high degree so I can comprehend all the new things that are thrown at me.

Men are much oftener thrown on their knees by the melancholy than by the agreeable passions.
You don't take a class; you're thrown into motherhood and learn from experience.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

I feel incompetent to perform duties... which have been so unexpectedly thrown upon me.
For people who have... had curve balls thrown at them, it is easier to digest change and digest change in other people. Change only scares the small-minded. The small-minded and me.
