There are numberless excuses for not making a difference in this world. Some of these excuses originate from within us. They are the result of our fears and worries. We think ourselves smaller than we actually are, hence we do not realize how great of an impact we can have. In other cases other people want to keep us small, for whatever nefarious reasons.
Actually, I love Yip Man’s quote (is it just me or does “Yip Man” sound like a name for a bizarre kind of superhero?). We tend to eat and drink, taking the sustenance for granted. Half the time, we are not even fully aware that we are eating or drinking, absorbed in the TV instead. Yip Man is saying “This is important. Pay attention. The water does not have to be here yet here it is.” He is making us aware in order to fully experience drinking.

A moat can be a pretty good thing. It can be lovely. It keeps rodents away from the castle. It can have fish in it. Even fish that talk. … If you give people access, they take advantage. My phone would ring 75 times in a row. Finally, I would pick it up and say, ‘Who the hell is this?’ ‘Oh, hi! I’m calling from so-and-so’s office…’ What kind of person would ever, ever let the phone ring 75 times? And I guess that’s when I started thinking: I can do without these people. Bill Murray

Hard work and a good dose of determination can lead you anywhere, even if you are not the most talented in this area. Think about all those super talents in your preferred area of sports. Only those talents who are willing to make an extra effort will be able to succeed. Otherwise, less talented people will outperform them with their boundless willingness to do everything they can in order to succeed.

There is a difference between being successful, and feeling successful.  Trust me, you want the latter.  Success should be accompanied by a feeling of humility that only the best of the best are capable of.  Harry Truman said, "It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit," and that is the selfless attitude that true success stories are built from.

It is said: “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. Have you just broken up with your boyfriend/ girlfriend? Don’t worry, your bestie already knows how to cheer you up. Did you go a little bit wild at the office party last night? Be sure, that all the embarrassing moments have been downloaded on YouTube by your humble servant. But no matter what you do, you can be sure that your pal will always stand by your side. Did you know that there’s even National Best Friends Day which is celebrated on June 8th? Of course, it doesn’t mean that this is the only day in a calendar to say kind words to your mate.

Amazing collaboration of quotes, steve mueller, I send the quotes to about 30 people in my phone and it brings them joy. The quotes are wonderful because their message is strength and the promise is hope. One day at a time is all anyone can ask for and with these quotes and explanations, you have made me overcome pitfalls in my own life. I was in active addiction and found myself being miserable and isolated because all hope was lost for me. After i began to find treatment and understood the main cause of my addiction was psychological, i began to search for things that can uplift me in the day, whether it is in the morning afternoon or at night. I find your quotes the best and it has helped me every day for the past few months. So i greatly thank you for paying it forward to one person. I wake up feel bummed and I read the quotes. I also copy and paste the quotes in the mornng and send them out to people because I find it helps me get the day started and I hope to uplift a person if they are feeling miserable or their day is not going well. It has helped plenty of people and they thank me for the wonderful quotes. So I thank you for your time and effort in putting this togethor and you have a wonderful day!!
If there is something many of us admire about successful people it is that they do not waste their time complaining about the difficulties they encounter. Sometimes it feels as if they did not even notice the hardship; they were too busy looking for a solution. Instead of focusing all their attention upon the problems and challenges, they are actively looking for ways to improve themselves in order to be able to overcome the issues.
I think connecting to a character is like connecting to any human being - either you like them or you don't. You might not be able to list the reasons why you love your best friend or what attracted you to them; it's just something that you feel - a connection, an understanding, or a curiosity that makes you want to get to know them. Katherine Waterston
