A Few More Nice Quotes

"It is not the critic that counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the one in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strived valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows at the end of the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with the cold timid souls who never know victory or defeat."

-Theodore Roosevelt


"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, the 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, meetings, and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."

-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

"A small deed is better than any grand intention."

-Found on a Leona's restaurant Billboard

"Fame, the only chemotherapy available for the desperate toxicity of narcissism, proves once again that it is deadly enough in its own right to be avoided."

–Cintra Wilson
