May I never grow to old to treasure 'once upon a time'.
"I shut my eyes in order to see." -- Paul Gauquin
"There is a boundary to men's passions when they act from feelings; but none when they are under the influence of imagination." -- Edmund Burke
"Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier." -- Charles F. Kettering
"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." -- --Albert Einstein
Many of us are afraid to follow our passions, to pursue what we want most because it means taking risks and even facing failure. But to pursue your passion with all your heart and soul is success in itself. The greatest failure is to have never really tried.
We may affirm absolutely that nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.
--Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
It is a lesson which all history teaches the wise, to put trust in ideas, and not in circumstances" -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Lack of money is no obstacle. Lack of an idea is an obstacle.” -- Ken Hakuta
"Take all the training you can get; one good idea is all you need to save yourself years of hard work." -- Brian Tracy
"The Bible says, ‘If you wish to find, you must search.’ I believe that is true, rarely does a good idea interrupt you." -- Jim Rohn
I love men, not for what unites them, but for what divides them, and I want to know most of all what gnaws at their hearts.
When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart.
"People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully.” -- Steve Jobs
“Only through focus can you do world-class things, no matter how capable you are."
-- Bill Gates
"Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential." -- Barack Obama
"Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it." -- James Allen
