Great things are not done by impulse,
but by a series of small things brought together.

Vincent Van Gogh


Take the first step in faith.
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.

Martin Luther King


Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief,
than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.

Marcus Antonius


You and I do not see things as they are.
We see things as we are.

Herb Cohen


Unless commitment is made,
there are only promises and hopes;
but no plans.

Peter F. Drucker


It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


If we don't change, we don't grow.
If we don't grow we are not really living.
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.
It may mean a giving up of familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in relationships that have lost their meaning.
As Dostoevsky put it, "Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most".
The real fear should be of the opposite course.

Gail Sheehy


Do not do what you would undo if caught.

Leah Arendt


Our hopes are but memories reversed.



All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this:
Act as if it were impossible to fail.
That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right-about-face which turns us from failure towards success.

Dorothea Brande


Basically, the word means wholeness.
In mathematics, an integer is a number that isn't divided into fractions.
Just so, a man of integrity is not divided against himself.
He does not think one thing and say another.

Robert Bolton


Each handicap is like a hurdle in a steeplechase,
and when you ride up to it,
if you throw your heart over,
the horse will go along too.

Lawrence Bixby


If I had my life to live again.
I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.

Tallulah Bankhead


It's been very important throughout my career
that I've met all the guys I've copied,
because at each stage they've said,
"Don't play like me, play like you."

Eric Clapton

If all is not lost, where is it?
It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
If at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished.

I wish the buck stopped here. I could use a few...

Living on Earth is expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun.
The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.
