Quote of the Day
Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.
There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.
The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going to fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.
Trust is hard to come by. That's why my circle is small and tight. I'm kind of funny about making new friends.
If you're white and you're wrong, then you're wrong; if you're black and you're wrong, you're wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green - God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
Having a baby is a life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day.
Life is hard for everyone. That's why there's such a nice reward at the end of it.
You can't please everyone. When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards, you aren't spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge. But for the most part, it's all in your head. People care less about your actions than you think. Why? They have their own problems!
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.
He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.
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.
What is a kiss? Why this, as some approve: The sure, sweet cement, glue, and lime of love.
I don't know why, but rain comes into my head the minute I think of my childhood.
I am whatever you say I am; if I wasn't, then why would you say I am.
I will make up a crush, you hear me?! I will look at a guy and say, for two months at least, 'I think you're cute.' And then I can be psycho. I will go in my head and make a whole life with him, he don't even understand why I'm mad at him. I'm like... 'cause you came in late last night!' And he's like, 'I don't even know you.'
I have a great respect for incremental improvement, and I've done that sort of thing in my life, but I've always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don't know why. Because they're harder. They're much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you've completely failed.
You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life.
When you form a team, why do you try to form a team? Because teamwork builds trust and trust builds speed.
Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?
Leonardo da Vinci
I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Sometimes I think my husband is so amazing that I don't know why he's with me. I don't know whether I'm good enough. But if I make him happy, then I'm everything I want to be.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
