How it is that people choose to stay ignorant about certain things in life is beyond my comprehension.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
― Denis Waitley (via psych-quotes)
Hard to like people who think they’ve got you all figured out.
Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living.
There are so many people in the world with so many different perspectives. But ultimately, at the heart of it, they’re people.
Dave Sitek (via infamoussayings)
Were we incapable of empathy – of putting ourselves in the position of others and seeing that their suffering is like our own – then ethical reasoning would lead nowhere. If emotion without reason is blind, then reason without emotion is impotent.
― Peter Singer (via psych-quotes)
