If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.
In my life I've learned that true happiness comes from giving. Helping others along the way makes you evaluate who you are. I think that love is what we're all searching for. I haven't come across anyone who didn't become a better person through love.
You don't need a silver fork to eat good food.
You can have no dominion greater or less than that over yourself.
Leonardo da Vinci
It's never what you say, but how you make it sound sincere.
Until you have a son of your own... you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son.
I still love things that you don't even need to pay for. Going to the beach and being around five of your friends and having a good time means so much more than going out and spending hundreds of dollars.
History never really says goodbye. History says, 'See you later.'
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Men ought either to be indulged or utterly destroyed, for if you merely offend them they take vengeance, but if you injure them greatly they are unable to retaliate, so that the injury done to a man ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared.

You know, when you really connect with the instrument and everything just comes out on an emotional level very naturally through your playing. That's, you know, a great night. And I think the reason I love touring so much is you're chasing that high around all the time, trying to have another good night.
Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
'Perfection' to me is, I walk away from a situation and say, 'I did everything I could do right there. There was nothing more that I could do.' I was a hundred percent, like the meter was at the top. There was nothing else I could have done. You know? Like, I worked as hard as I possibly could have. That's perfection.
Cats are very independent animals. They're very sexy, if you want. Dogs are different. They're familiar. They're obedient. You call a cat, you go, 'Cat, come here.' He doesn't come to you unless you have something in your hand that he thinks might be food. They're very free animals, and I like that.
I am whatever you say I am; if I wasn't, then why would you say I am.

The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.
If you're presenting yourself with confidence, you can pull off pretty much anything.
If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
