If you`re doing your best, you won`t have any time to worry about failure.

H. Jackson Brown

Every person must decide, at some point, whether they will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. (...) Life`s most persistent and urgent question is. "What are you doing for others?"

Martin Luther King

Ability is what you`re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Lou Holtz

We`ve all had experiences where we were working on something and we knew it was possible and we did those things that were necessary to bring it into reality, we took the responsibility to make it happen. Other people couldn`t see it, lot of people didn`t believe it. You were talked down, you were criticized, people were opposing you but you kept on doing it. It was hard, it was rough, it was difficult but to you it was worth it. And eventually you got to a level you know ain`t nothing can stop me know. I`m on the move. I`m on the move.

Les Brown

Punk is musical freedom. It`s saying, doing and playing what you want. [...] `Nirvana` means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that`s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.

Doing what has never been done before is intellectually seductive, whether or not we deem it practical.

It`s the action, not the fruit of the action, that`s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn`t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no results.

Mahatma Gandhi

I can only do so much
And of course it`s never enough
I don`t think that you see
Exactly what you`re doing to me.

Three Days Grace

A lot of times when people make accusations like that about other people - "Oh, he can't really be doing this for principled reasons, he must have some corrupt, nefarious reason" - they're saying a lot more about themselves than they are the target of their accusations, because those people, the ones who make that accusation, they themselves never act for any reason other than corrupt reasons, so they assume that everybody else is plagued by the same disease of soullessness as they are, and so that's the assumption.

Glenn Greenwald

London Boulevard (movie)

Every feature of a human organization is a result of a history, so that everything about them is negotiable and subject to improvement by the invention of new ways of doing things.

Lee Smolin

Darwin`s idea of evolution by natural selection is, in my opinion, the single best idea that anybody has ever had, because in a single bold stroke it unites meaning with matter, two aspects of reality that appear to be worlds apart. On one side, we have the world of our minds and their meanings, our goals, our hopes, and our yearnings, and that most honored - and hackneyed - of all philosophical topics, the Meaning of Life. On the other side, we have galaxies ceaselessly wheeling, planets falling pointlessly into their orbits, lifeless chemical mechanisms doing what physics ordains, all without purpose or reason. Then Darwin comes along and shows us how the former arises from the latter, creating meaning as it goes, a bubble-up vision of the birth of importance to overthrow the trickle-down vision of tradition.

Daniel Dennett

It doesn't matter what you did or where you were, it matters where you are and what you're doing.

Steve Maraboli
