"DO NOT RESIST CHANCES.
Take them like vitamins.
Let go of the brakes.
See what happens if you go five more miles.
Footbridges be damned, find your own way across.
Don’t worry about the bumps and bruises.
Your body can take them.
Don’t steer around the bits that scare you, go over them, go through them.
Do something the guys in the (game) would be terrified of.
You feel your chin rise up from your chest, and you’ll be able to see
what’s around you. What’s ahead of you.
And there will be one less thing you cannot do.
JUST DO IT. "
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail".
Ralph Waldo Emerson
”Do your work. Not just your work, do a little more, but that little is worth more than all the rest.
And if you suffer, as you must, and if you doubt, as you must, do your work.
Put your heart into it, and the sky will clear.
Then out of your doubt and suffering will be born the supreme joy of life.”
"I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my ashes should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of a man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
