The brain is wider than the sky. Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. Listen, smile, agree, and then do whatever the fuck you were doing to do anyway.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. I have the choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad.
If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary. Your character traits are a kind of chemical mix that will never be repeated in history.
There are ideas unique to you, a specific rhythm and perspective that are your strengths, not your weaknesses. If you’re willing to bleed a little every day, you may win big later.
Take your time, play the long game, embrace the boring, the difficulties, the uncomfortable. Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.
Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. A ship is always safe a shore but that is not what it’s built for.
Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.
One-liners, short inspirational quotes, thoughts, sayings and captions for your bio, social status, self-talk, motto, mantra, signs, posters, wallpapers, backgrounds. You make your own luck if you stay at it long enough.
A goal should scare you a little and excite you a lot. Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
Our true nationality is mankind. My message to you is simple, keep believing, keep marching, keep building, keep raising your voice.
Feet, what do I need them for if I have wings to fly. Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.
H. Jackson Brown Jr. Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.
Dale Carnegie (See also: uplifting quotes) Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.

You will find poetry nowhere unless you bring some of it with you. And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes. Abandon yourself to the moment, and you will find every day new openings, new light, new insight.
You have to be able to tolerate what you don’t necessarily like, so you can be free. What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.

And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. Rise to the level of your ideals, not the average of your environment.
Optimistic contrarians are the rarest breed. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
You will always find an answer in the sound of water. Anything I come across that feels impossible, I probably need to take a second look.
Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness. Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
Goodness makes greatness truly valuable, and greatness make goodness much more serviceable. You must realize that one day you will die.
Do not think you will necessarily be aware of your own enlightenment. If you suddenly stumble upon the right door, you will not be able to recognize that it is right.
Know how to listen, and you will profit even from those who talk badly. Genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way.
Maxime Legacy started collecting quotes in 2004 after he lost his girlfriend in a car accident. In search of meaning, he dived in the self-improvement world, psychology and trail running.
His goal was to understand his pain, his depression, his fears, his lack of motivation and inspiration. Books, blogs, quotes and nature became his guide.
He finished his software engineering degree in 2007 at the Cole DE Technologies Superior de Montréal. He also studied at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
A few years later, he started his first website to share his passion for quotes. Maxime is a father of two, INFO and also loves running.
