Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be.
It is not my wish to lounge about the college and fatten on a fellowship all my days. I am always trying to look upon a college life as a medium not an end.
Thomas Edward Brown
Gay teenagers are four times as likely to attempt suicide as straight ones. I wish they knew that there's nothing wrong with them; that they are just a different shade of normal.
To be able to give away riches is mandatory if you wish to possess them. This is the only way that you will be truly rich.

I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.
Yves Saint Laurent
Plenty of people wish to become devout, but no one wishes to be humble.
I never really studied business in school. I kind of wish I had, but how boring is that?
What do most people say on their deathbed? They don't say, 'I wish I'd made more money.' What they say is, 'I wish I'd spent more time with my family and done more for society or my community.'
No one on his deathbed ever said, I wish I had spent more time on my business.
Laziness never arrived at the attainment of a good wish.
Miguel de Cervantes
Let me say no danger and no hardship ever makes me wish to get back to that college life again.

Mary J. Blige
I do not wish to hide my origins, nor do I seek to make it a subject of conversation. I am what I am.
I only wish that ordinary people had an unlimited capacity for doing harm; then they might have an unlimited power for doing good.
The one who cannot restrain their anger will wish undone, what their temper and irritation prompted them to do.
What is needed is the intelligent management of Earth's resources. If we really wish to put an end to our ongoing international and social problems, we must eventually declare Earth and all of its resources as the common heritage of all the world's people.
Of all the nonsense written about love, none is more absurd than the notion that ideal love is selfless. To love is to see myself in you and to wish to celebrate myself with you. What I love is the embodiment of my values in another person. Love is an act of self-assertion, self-expression and a celebration of being alive.
I don't even know why I'm saying this in an interview situation, but I always feel like I'm not good enough for some reason. I wish that wasn't the case, but left to my own devices, that voice starts speaking up.
Eventually, we reach the point where we start to realize that we are not going to find peace, contentment, happiness, strength, fearlessness - all of the things that in our heart of hearts we wish we had - outside of us.
