Dedicated For Everyone

“The fishing is best where the fewest go and the collective insecurity of the world makes it easy for people to hit home runs while everyone is aiming for base hits.”
― Timothy Ferriss

“Living a life somewhere else in your mind is nothing more than being a prisoner where you are.”
― Shannon L. Alder

“What else can I do? Once you’ve gone this far you aren’t fit for anything else. Something happens to your mind. You’re overqualified, overspecialized, and everybody knows it. Nobody in any other game would be crazy enough to hire me. I wouldn’t even make a good ditch-digger, I’d start tearing apart the sewer-system, trying to pick-axe and unearth all those chthonic symbols – pipes, valves, cloacal conduits… No, no. I’ll have to be a slave in the paper-mines for all time.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Edible Woman

“Every time you have to make a choice about anything, think “Does this go toward or away from what I want?” Always choose what goes toward what you want.”
― Barbara Sher, I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was: How to Discover What You Really Want and How to Get It

“If you can channel the best part of you that is bigger than yourself, where it’s not about your ego and not about getting ahead, then you can have fun and you aren’t jealous of others. You see other people’s talent as another branch of your own. You can keep it rooted in joy. Life is long and there are plenty of opportunities to make mistakes. The point of it all is to learn.”
― Ethan Hawke
“Pitting your dream against someone else’s is a fantastic way to get discouraged and depressed.”
― Jon Acuff, Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job & Your Dream Job
“Our culture is now one of masculine triumphalism, in which transhistorically feminine expressions – empathy, sweetness, volubility, warmth – are seen as impediments to a woman’s professional trajectory in many sectors.”
― Antonella Gambotto-Burke, Mama: Dispatches from the Frontline of Love
“Friendship is not by force but by choice.
You can never please everybody, he who aims to please everybody will end up pleasing nobody.”
