You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. I do not seek. I find. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. Until you try, you do not know what you cannot do. One cannot govern with buts. It is never too late to be what you might have been.
He who has begun his task has half done it. Do not be afraid to take big steps. You cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps.
The wisest men follow their own direction. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go.
Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. If you have a lemon, make lemonade.
Normal is not something to aspire to, it is something to get away from. Believing is one thing, doing another. Many talk like the sea but their lives are stagnant marshes. Others raise their heads above the mountain tops, while their souls cling to the dark walls of caves Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
