success


Random quote of the day:

“There is no such thing as an overnight success. You will do well to cultivate the resources in yourself that bring you happiness outside of success or failure. The truth is, most of us discover where we are headed when we arrive. At that time, we turn around and say, yes, this is obviously where I was going all along. It’s a good idea to try to enjoy the scenery on the detours, because you’ll probably take a few.”

—Bill Watterson, Kenyon College Commencement, May 20, 1990

Random quote of the day:

“We all have different desires and needs, but if we don’t discover what we want from ourselves and what we stand for, we will live passively and unfulfilled. Sooner or later, we are all asked to compromise ourselves and the things we care about. We define ourselves by our actions. With each decision, we tell ourselves and the world who we are. Think about what you want out of this life, and recognize that there are many kinds of success.

—Bill Watterson, “Some Thoughts On the Real World By One Who Glimpsed It and Fled,” Kenyon College Commencement, May 20, 1990

Random quote of the day:

“What’s money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.”

—attributed to Bob Dylan

Everybody says Bob Dylan said this, man, but I couldn’t find no confirmation, man, saying where he said it. One place said it was the World Weekly News, and maybe that’s so, I don’t know, but I have me some doubts. I don’t know what the answer is, my friend…

Random quote of the day:

 

 

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who has looked for the best in others and given the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction.”

—Bessie A. Stanley, “What Constitutes Success?” Emporia Gazette, December 11, 1905
(often misattributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Robert Louis Stevenson, and other three-named men)
