Favorite Quotes

“You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how”

“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”

“Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in. When you stumble, keep faith. When you’re knocked down, get right back up. And never listen to anyone who says you can’t or shouldn’t go on”

“Don’t give up. When the world dumps on you for no good reason, when you make a mistake and fall short, just never stop, keep getting up and keep going.”

“I don’t need maternity care, so requiring that to be in my insurance plan will make my policy more expensive” (Jon Kyl, R-Arizona) … “I think your Mom probably did” (Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan)

“Please get out of my Van Halen t-shirt before you jinx the band and they break up”

“You have to give them hope. Hope for a better world, hope for a better tomorrow, hope for a better place to come if the pressure at home are too great. Hope that it will be all right.”

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

“All my life I have been haunted by the obsession that to desire a thing or to love a thing intensely is to place yourself in a vulnerable position, to be a possible if not probable loser of what you most want”

“True leadership inspires people to follow you because you serve their psychological need for purpose, value and direction.”

“A message has arrived to say that the days of sorrow will not last. What happened in the past did not last for ever. And nor what is in the present last forever either.”

“If you don’t start undressing me soon this is going to turn into a panel discussion.”

“What matters is not wealth or status or power or fame, but rather how well we have loved, and what small part we have played in making the lives of other people better.”

“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.”

“If I walked on water, the headline the next day would be ‘President Can’t Swim'”

“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing… Stop over-analysing; life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Stop over-analysing; life is simple. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once: seize them. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people. We are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream, and share your passion.”

“Where your treasure is, that’s where your heart should be.”

“Love and kindness are always appropriate. Whether or not you believe in rebirth, you will need love in this life.”

“For flavor, instant sex will never supersede the stuff you have to peel and cook.”

“Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge.”

“When you really want something, the universe always conspires in your favour.”

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.”
