“Do Not Let Your Fire Go Out”

 

“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.”    (Maria Montessori)

 


 

“Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality.”   (Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Dreams and Reaching Your Destiny)

 


 

“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.”    (Marian Wright Edelman)

 


 

“Going after a dream has a price.  It may mean abandoning our habits, it may make us go through hardships, or it may lead us to disappointment.  But however costly it may be, it is never as high as the price paid by people who didn’t live.”    (Paulo Coelho)

 


 

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.  If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.  On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”    (Mahatma Gandhi)

 


 

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

 


 

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do.  Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors.  Try to be better than yourself.”    (William Faulkner)

 


 

“The universe conspires to help the dreamer.”    (Paulo Coelho)
