58 Comedy Bill Hicks The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round; it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun... for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, and they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid -EVER- because, this is just a ride." And we... KILL those people HAHAHA! "Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride - SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry! Look at my big bank account, and my family! This just HAS to be real!"... But it's just a ride. And we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok? Jesus - murdered; Martin Luther King - murdered; Malcolm X - murdered; Gandhi - murdered; John Lennon - murdered; Reagan... wounded HAHA! But it doesn't matter because: It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride: Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, NOT ONE HUMAN BEING EXCLUDED, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

He lived alone in a shack that was literally buried in the great glacial icecap that covers the South Pole. He spent five months there. The days were as black as the nights. No living creature of any kind existed within a hundred miles. The cold was so intense that he could hear his breath freeze and crystallize as the wind blew it past his ears. "At night, before blowing out the lantern, I formed the habit of planning the morrow's work." He had to, in order to preserve his sanity. "It was wonderful to be able to dole out time in this way. It brought me an extraordinary sense of command over myself; and without constant activity, the days would have been without purpose; and without purpose, they would have ended ? as such days always end ? in disintegration."

311 Modesty Lao Tzu The great rivers and seas are kings of all mountain streams because they skillfully stay below them. That is why they can be their kings. Therefore, in order to be the superior of the people / One must, in the use of words, place himself below them. And in order to be ahead of the people, one must, in one's own person, follow them. Therefore the sage places himself above the people and they do not feel his weight. He places himself in front of them and the people do not harm him. Therefore the world rejoices in praising him without getting tired of it. It is?precisely?because he does not compete, that the world cannot compete with him. Show Edit

561 Career Gordon Ramsay My advice to young people from ages 16 to 29, 30 is ... 14 years of being a sponge! You are absorbing knowledge. Don't take a job for the sake of money. Don't worry about a 6-figure salary next year, somewhere else. Go and get knowledge because that becomes a bigger passport for anything. The money will come, once you master a craft and you become incredibly talented. Work for better people and challenge yourself when things get too comfortable. Get out, put yourself into weird situations and see what's available. It's great for your confidence. Show Edit

563 Success Steve Jobs People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you are doing. It's totally true and the reason is ... because it's so hard, that if you don't have passion, any rational person would give up. It's really hard. And you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don't love it, if you are not having fun doing it, you are going to give up. And that's what happens to most people actually. If you really look at ones that ended up being "successful" in eyes of society and ones that didn't, oftentimes, the successful ones loved what they did so they could persevere when things got really tough. And the ones that didn't love it, quit. Because they are sane. Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don't love it? So it's a lot of hard work. So if you don't love it, you are going to fail. You gotta love it. You gotta have passion. Show Edit

585 Action William Hutchison Murray Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now. Show Edit
