Favorite QuotesWork like you don't need the money
Love like you've never been hurt
Dance like nobody's watching
Sing like nobody's listening
Live like it's heaven on earth.
Every morning in Africa, when a gazelle wakes up it knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed
Every morning in Africa, when a lion wakes up it knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death
It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you'd better be running!
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
-Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.
They say dreams are the windows of the soul--take a peek and you can see the inner workings, the nuts and bolts.
An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens.
Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it - this is knowledge.
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
-George Bernard Shaw
