"What ever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do."
"The only way you can find what you're capable of is by trying your absolute hardest. True failure comes from not trying!"
"it is crucial for a storyteller to get lost."
~Guillermo Del Toro
"A day lost to procrastination is a day worse you’ll be in a year."
“Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the “someday I’ll” philosophy.”
"No man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth, without caring two pence how often it has been told before, you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."
~C. S. Lewis
“There’s only one rule I know of: goddamn it, you’ve got to be kind.”
”Not getting what you want, that void, motivates you to become the person it takes to get what you want”
"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out screaming DAMN! What a ride!"
"Honesty is next to godliness"
"To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself—means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight—and never stop fighting."
~e. e. cummings
"A person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself. He makes his failure certain by himself being the first person to be convicted of it."
"To be ambitious for wealth, and yet always expecting to be poor; to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for, is like trying to reach east by traveling west. There is no philosophy which will help man to succeed when he is always doubting his ability to do so, and thus attracting failure. No matter how hard you work for success if your thought is saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize you endeavors and make success impossible."
"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
"I am only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."
~Edward E. Hale
