Your story

"Child," said the Lion, "I am telling you your story, not hers. No one is told any story but their own."

~ C.S. Lewis

I would still plant my apple tree

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. 

~ Martin Luther

~ Seneca

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble.

~ Helen Keller

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
~ Oscar Wilde

No man was ever wise by chance.

~ Seneca

Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

 

 

The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a room packed with archaic furniture. You must get the old furniture of what you know, think, and believe out before anything new can get in. Make an empty space in any corner of your mind, and creativity will instantly fill it.

~ Dee Hock

Substance is enduring, form is ephemeral. Failure to distinguish clearly between the two is ruinous. Success follows those adept at preserving the substance of the past by clothing it in the forms of the future. Preserve substance; modify form; know the difference. The closest thing to a law of nature in business is that form has an affinity for expense, while substance has an affinity for income.

~ Dee Hock

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.

~ Napoleon Hill

Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them.

~ Hugh Miller
