Compiled by Alex Pena ~ ‘Catalyst’: “to spark, to ignite, energize, mobilize; something that accelerates a reaction (DDI)." Thought-provoking & motivational quotes and stories for you to read, reflect on and move forward in making creative and positive changes in your life.



“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all.   Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle.   The world you desired can be won.    It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.”     (Ayn Rand)


“Here’s to the crazy ones.   The misfits.   The rebels.   The trouble-makers.   The round heads in the square holes.   The ones who see things differently.   They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo.   You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them.   But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.   Because they change things.   They push the human race forward.   And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.   Because the people, who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”     (‘Think Different’ advertisement, Apple Computers)


“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.   It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.   We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”     (Albert Schweitzer)
