Salman Rushdie
“Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be bloody-minded. Argue with the world. And never forget that writing is as close as we get to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things--childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams, instants, phrases, parents, loves--that go on slipping , like sand, through our fingers.”
Salman Rushdie, Imaginary Homelands: Essays and Criticism 1981-1991

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

I refuse to believe it.

Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Don't quit. Don't quit because a month from now you will be that much closer to your goal than you are now. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Make today count.”

Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes

“Make today a gift to your future self.”

Wendell Berry
“The fashion now is to think of universities as industries or businesses. University presidents, evidently thinking of themselves as CEO's, talk of "business plans" and "return on investment," as if the industrial economy could provide an aim and a critical standard appropriate either to education or to research.

But this is not possible. No economy, industrial or otherwise, can supply an appropriate aim or standard. Any economy must be either true or false to the world and to our life in it. If it is to be true, then it must be made true, according to a standard that is not economic.

To regard the economy as an end or as the measure of success is merely to reduce students, teachers, researchers, and all they know or learn to merchandise. It reduces knowledge to "property" and education to training for the "job market."

If, on the contrary, [Sir Albert] Howard was right in his belief that health is the "one great subject," then a unifying aim and a common critical standard are clearly implied. Health is at once quantitative and qualitative; it requires both sufficiency and goodness. It is comprehensive (it is synonymous with "wholeness"), for it must leave nothing out. And it is uncompromisingly local and particular; it has to do with the sustenance of particular places, creatures, human bodies, and human minds.

If a university began to assume responsibility for the health of its place and its local constituents, then all of its departments would have a common aim, and they would have to judge their place and themselves and one another by a common standard. They would need one another's knowledge. They would have to communicate with one another; the diversity of specialists would have to speak to one another in a common language. And here again Howard is exemplary, for he wrote, and presumably spoke, a plain, vigorous, forthright English-- no jargon, no condescension, no ostentation, no fooling around.”
Wendell Berry

Sanhita Baruah
“Sometimes, you don't get what you want the most... At other times, you're just lucky.”

“When you decide - follow it up with action as spontaneously as possible if not sooner because the quicker you reciprocate with the decision the sooner you shall see results.”

Anthony Powell
“This ideal conception―that one should have an aim in life―had, indeed, only too often occurred to me as an unsolved problem; but I was still far from deciding what form my endeavours should ultimately take.”
Anthony Powell, A Dance to the Music of Time: 1st Movement

M.H. Rakib
“One can never rack up his goals mere through hard-work, there is a thing in this world which is known as self-confidence.”
M.H. Rakib, The Cavalier

“Если мы хотим, чтобы ребенок развивался и рос как личность, нам нельзя допускать, чтобы он ориентировался только на наши требования. Напротив, мы должны помочь ребенку следовать его собственным внутренним целям и желаниям. Обычно детям бывает легче осознавать свои личные цели, когда они выражают их в творчестве: когда они пишут, сочиняют музыку, играют на музыкальных инструментах, рисуют или ставят детские пьесы.”
Klaus W. Vopel, Как научить детей сотрудничать? Психологические игры и упражнения: Практическое пособие. Часть 1

Hanan Farhat
“فأهدافنا خيوطٌ ندخلها واحدةً تلو الأخرى في ثقب الإبرة الضيق لقليل الصّبر، الواسع لطويل البال.. ندخلها مرّةً واثنتين وثلاثاً، حتّى إذا يئسنا وقارب الصبر النفاذ، دخلت.. فمِنّا من يتسرّع ويخرجها من الثّقب متوهماً دخولها.. ومنّا من يدرك بحنكته ضرورة التأنّي للوصول إلى المبتغى.”
Hanan Farhat, فاقد الهوية

Israelmore Ayivor
“The worst to ever happen to a person who aims at the sky is to fall on the tallest mountain; the best that can happen to a person who aims at the ceiling of his room is to fall on the carpet of his floor!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Watchwords

William James
“Not that I would not, if I could, be both handsome ...and well-dressed, and a great athlete, and make a million a year, be a wit, a bon-vivant, and a lady-killer, as well as a philosopher; a philanthropist, statesman, warrior, and African explorer, as well as a ‘tone poet’ and saint. But the thing is simply impossible…Such different characters may conceivably at the outset of life be alike possible to a man. But to make any one of them actual, the rest must more or less be suppressed. So the seeker of his truest, strongest, deepest self must review the list carefully, and pick out the one on which to stake his salvation. All other selves thereupon become unreal…”
William James

“A person with victim mentality cannot find himself, his life mission, and go towards his aims”
Sunday Adelaja
