Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
I don't regret what I've been through. I've had ups and downs, super highs and some really low lows. I've been so blessed that I could never say, 'I wish this didn't happen.' It's part of who I am. There's nothing in my life that's so ugh.
A father is a man who expects his son to be as good a man as he meant to be.
Frank A. Clark
A true friend is someone who is there for you when he'd rather be anywhere else.
Presents don't really mean much to me. I don't want to sound mawkish, but - it was the realization that I have a great many people in my life who really love me, and who I really love.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.
Edgar Allan Poe
For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like 'Blue Kentucky Girl,' by Emmylou Harris, and 'Off the Wall,' by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's 'Purple Rain' - it just can't be done!
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
I know that I will never find my father in any other man who comes into my life, because it is a void in my life that can only be filled by him.
Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness.
Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
George S. Patton
Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.
Work hard. And have patience. Because no matter who you are, you're going to get hurt in your career and you have to be patient to get through the injuries.
Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.
How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.
A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.
Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?
I realize that humor isn't for everyone. It's only for people who want to have fun, enjoy life, and feel alive.
Anne Wilson Schaef
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.
Ulysses S. Grant
Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
I speak not for myself but for those without voice... those who have fought for their rights... their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
