Rabindranath Tagore
“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
Rabindranath Tagore

Vera Nazarian
“When you reach for the stars, you are reaching for the farthest thing out there. When you reach deep into yourself, it is the same thing, but in the opposite direction. If you reach in both directions, you will have spanned the universe.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Kamand Kojouri
“They want us to be afraid.
They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes.
They want us to barricade our doors
and hide our children.
Their aim is to make us fear life itself!
They want us to hate.
They want us to hate 'the other'.
They want us to practice aggression
and perfect antagonism.
Their aim is to divide us all!
They want us to be inhuman.
They want us to throw out our kindness.
They want us to bury our love
and burn our hope.
Their aim is to take all our light!
They think their bricked walls
will separate us.
They think their damned bombs
will defeat us.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that my soul and your soul are old friends.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that when they cut you I bleed.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that we will never be afraid,
we will never hate
and we will never be silent
for life is ours!”
Kamand Kojouri

Vera Nazarian
“Who says you cannot hold the moon in your hand?

Tonight when the stars come out and the moon rises in the velvet sky, look outside your window, then raise your hand and position your fingers around the disk of light.

There you go . . . That was easy!”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Rachel Carson
“The aim of science is to discover and illuminate truth. And that, I take it, is the aim of literature, whether biography or history... It seems to me, then, that there can be no separate literature of science.”

G.I. Gurdjieff
“Common aim is stronger than blood.”

Niccolò Machiavelli
“CHAPTER VI
Concerning New Principalities Which Are Acquired By One's Own Arms And Ability

LET no one be surprised if, in speaking of entirely new principalities as I shall do, I adduce the highest examples both of prince and of state; because men, walking almost always in paths beaten by others, and following by imitation their deeds, are yet unable to keep entirely to the ways of others or attain to the power of those they imitate. A wise man ought always to follow the paths beaten by great men, and to imitate those who have been supreme, so that if his ability does not equal theirs, at least it will savour of it. Let him act like the clever archers who, designing to hit the mark which yet appears too far distant, and knowing the limits to which the strength of their bow attains, take aim much higher than the mark, not to reach by their strength or arrow to so great a height, but to be able with the aid of so high an aim to hit the mark they wish to reach.”
Nicolo Machiavelli, The Prince

Richelle E. Goodrich
“To persist with a goal, you must treasure the dream more than the costs of sacrifice to attain it.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, and Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

“There are two missions we are obligated to carry out during our life journey. The first, is to seek Truth throughout our lifetime. The second, is simply to be good. Engrave it in your mind that life is just one big board game where you have to make it from start to finish by being good. That is all you have to do. The hardest part, is dealing with all the obstacles that prevent smooth sailing. The trick is, to always strive to be the right person in all situations – regardless of personal cost to you. Your aim is to make sure the right book on your shoulder weighs more that the bad book on the left. The scales are real. Regardless of your chosen faith, there is a measurement system to be found in all of the world's religions. After all, does it make sense for all souls, good or bad, to end up in the same place? Of course not. To really secure the very best setting in the afterlife, the vibrations of your good deeds must surpass your death.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Abhysheq Shukla
“Life is too short to be anything but happy. So kiss slowly. Love deeply. Forgive quickly. Take chances and never have regrets. Forget the past but remember what it taught you.”
Abhishek Shukla, KISS Life "Life is what you make it"

Amit Kalantri
“Your youth is certainly finished and old age has definitely arrived if you feel that you are losing enthusiasm, excitement and energy towards your dreams and goals.”
Amit Kalantri

J.R. Rim
“Having a dream is like having sunshine. Without it, you cannot see as clear. With it, your world shines. Have a dream, and the light will fill your eyes with hope.”
J.R. Rim

Louis de Broglie
“Vulnerable, like all men, to the temptations of arrogance, of which intellectual pride is the worst, he [the scientist] must nevertheless remain sincere and modest, if only because his studies constantly bring home to him that, compared with the gigantic aims of science, his own contribution, no matter how important, is only a drop in the ocean of truth.”
Louis de Broglie, Nouvelles perspectives en microphysique

Richie Norton
“If we want to sincerely enjoy our lives, who we become along the way is far more important than what we achieve.”

“If people don't understand your vision then you should understand their vision and move towards your dreams”
Anuj Jasani

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worst when they despise him,” he wrote. “Fail to honor others and they will fail to honor you. But of a good leader, who talks little, when his
work is done, his aims fulfilled, they will all say, ‘we did this ourselves.’ ”
Sam Walker, The Captain Class: The Hidden Force that Creates the World's Greatest Teams

“The ultimate aim of my life is to create the largest non-profit organization in the world.”
Anuj Jasani

“If it's your dream to become something very important, do anything to achieve it.”
Anuj Jasani

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“People often feel that there’s no sense in aiming at something in life because there’s a good chance that they’re going to miss it. And it becomes abundantly clear that a positive attitude was never a target.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Far too much of my life is defined by ‘ready, fire, aim,’ which explains why my target has no holes in it.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“It doesn't matter how far it is for you to reach your goal, what matter is your aim to succeed.”

Derren Brown
“Going into a game of tennis: If you go in determined to win, and then your opponent is playing better than you, you're probably going to get anxious and feel that you're failing.

Whereas if you go in determined to play as well as you can, then it doesn't matter if your opponent is a bit better than you or if they start to win: you're not failing.”
Derren Brown
