Target Quotations

Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see. - Arthur Schopenhauer
Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.
Arthur Schopenhauer

My life is like a speeding bullet that just hasn't hit the target yet.
Kid Cudi

Cash - in savings accounts, short-term CDs or money market deposits - is great for an emergency fund. But to fulfill a long-term investment goal like funding your retirement, consider buying stocks. The more distant your financial target, the longer inflation will gnaw at the purchasing power of your money.
Suze Orman

Always grow flowers, as that will make your way full of flowers. Never grow thorns, as that will make your way thorny. Never want to target someone on an arrow. You may become the target of that arrow. Never make a well in the way of someone. As you may pass by that way sometime.
Rahman Baba

Growing up, I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test, and there were a thousand ways to fail, a thousand ways to betray yourself, to not live up to someone else's standards of what was accepted, of what was normal.
Wentworth Miller
