Jhumpa Lahiri
“Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination.”
Jhumpa Lahiri, Interpreter of Maladies

Shannon L. Alder
“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.”
Shannon L. Alder

Fernando Pessoa
“I’ve dreamed a lot. I’m tired now from dreaming but not tired of dreaming. No one tires of dreaming, because to dream is to forget, and forgetting does not weigh on us, it is a dreamless sleep throughout which we remain awake. In dreams I have achieved everything.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

Israelmore Ayivor
“Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is given out. The day you procrastinate, you lose that day's success.”
Israelmore Ayivor

Dorothy L. Sayers
“It is extraordinarily entertaining to watch the historians of the past ... entangling themselves in what they were pleased to call the "problem" of Queen Elizabeth. They invented the most complicated and astonishing reasons both for her success as a sovereign and for her tortuous matrimonial policy. She was the tool of Burleigh, she was the tool of Leicester, she was the fool of Essex; she was diseased, she was deformed, she was a man in disguise. She was a mystery, and must have some extraordinary solution. Only recently has it occrurred to a few enlightened people that the solution might be quite simple after all. She might be one of the rare people were born into the right job and put that job first.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Are Women Human? Astute and Witty Essays on the Role of Women in Society

Jhumpa Lahiri
“While the astronauts, heroes forever, spent mere hours on the moon, I have remained in this new world for nearly thirty years. I know that my achievement is quite ordinary. I am not the only man to seek his fortune far from home, and certainly I am not the first. Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination." (from "The Third and Final Continent")”
Jhumpa Lahiri, Interpreter of Maladies

Neil Gaiman
“Nearly' only counts in horseshoes and hand-grenades.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

Shannon L. Alder
“The most important thing is this: to sacrifice what you are now for what you can become tomorrow.”

Muhammad Ali
“What keeps me going is goals.”

Shannon A. Thompson, Seconds Before Sunrise

Tim Fargo
“Opportunity doesn't make appointments, you have to be ready when it arrives.”

Elizabeth I
“As for my own part I care not for death, for all men are mortal; and though I be a woman yet I have as good a courage answerable to my place as ever my father had. I am your anointed Queen. I will never be by violence constrained to do anything. I thank God I am indeed endowed with such qualities that if I were turned out of the realm in my petticoat I were able to live in any place in Christendom.”
Elizabeth I, Collected Works

Alain de Botton
“It is one of the unexpected disasters of the modern age that our new unparalleled access to information has come at the price of our capacity to concentrate on anything much. The deep, immersive thinking which produced many of civilization's most important achievements has come under unprecedented assault. We are almost never far from a machine that guarantees us a mesmerizing and libidinous escape from reality. The feelings and thoughts which we have omitted to experience while looking at our screens are left to find their revenge in involuntary twitches and our ever-decreasing ability to fall asleep when we should.”
Alain de Botton, Religion for Atheists: A Non-Believer's Guide to the Uses of Religion

“The number of ways to live in one lifetime is limitless. So why limit yourself?”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Alain de Botton
“It seems, in fact, that the more advanced a society is, the greater will be its interest in ruined things, for it will see in them a redemptively sobering reminder of the fragility of its own achievements. Ruins pose a direct challenge to our concern with power and rank, with bustle and fame. They puncture the inflated folly of our exhaustive and frenetic pursuit of wealth.”
Alain de Botton, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work

“Resistance is a powerful motivator precisely because it enables us to fulfill our longing to achieve our goals while letting us boldly recognize and name the obstacles to those achievements.”
Derrick A. Bell

Dorothy L. Sayers
“What'll Geoffrey do when you pull off your First, my child?" demanded Miss Haydock.

"Well, Eve -- it will be awkward if I do that. Poor lamb! I shall have to make him believe I only did it by looking fragile and pathetic at the viva.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night

Ana Monnar
“I'm happy for all who reached for the stars happily and successfully.”
Ana Monnar

Jared Diamond
“The Anasazi did manage to construct in stone the largest and tallest buildings erected in North America until the Chicago steel girder skyscrapers of the 1880s.”
Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Alain de Botton
“What makes the prospect of death distinctive in the modern age is the background of permanent technological and sociological revolution against which it is set, and which serves to strip us of any possible faith in the permanence of our labours. Our ancestors could believe that their achievements had a chance of bearing up against the flow of events. We know time to be a hurricane. Our buildings, our sense of style, our ideas, all of these will soon enough be anachronisms, and the machines in which we now take inordinate pride will seem no less bathetic than Yorick's skull.”
Alain de Botton, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work

Kate Alcott
“My dear, here is lesson number one for using opportunity; waste no time on false humility. Tell the world about your achievements don't wait for someone else to do it.”
Kate Alcott, The Dressmaker

DeWayne Owens
“Unity is the intentional inclination to corporately control our destination. In other words, achieving the dream takes a team!”
DeWayne Owens, How to Get Rich on Purpose: Secrets to Prosperity and Controlling Your Destiny

“Be as successful as a Smith.”
