.. Mike Tyson ?? smile.gif

I know a lot of people won't like him and he's done some pretty bad things but there was a time when he was one of the most driven athletes on the planet. I found 3 quotes that you can apply to anything, especially guitar playing smile.gif

“Success is all about being able to sacrifice.”

“I had to do things that I hated to do, but do them like I loved them.”

“Everybody wants the million dollars but most aren’t willing to put in the million miles to get there.”

It's easy to look at all the famous personalities, all the movies, computer games, albums, all of the physical products or appliances that fill our house and take them for granted. But behind every creation is a story of someone who had to push themselves through immense fear and develop the kind of self belief that it takes to become something great. I knew so many people who always had the belief that great things only happened to other people, like it was across another divide or something. But rather than being surrounded by evidence that ordinary people can't achieve their desires, instead we are constantly surrounded by actual physical evidence of people turning their ideas, their dreams into actual reality.. and changing the lives of millions of others in the process.

Quotes I like were said by a man called Confucius more than a millenium ago.

"Experience is a candle that illuminates the wearer."

"Silence is the true friend that never betrays."

"He who is not progressing every day, every day back."

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."

"A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it is committing another mistake."

"Error is equal, whether we go beyond or whether we fall short." (Translated by me - more or less -)

"A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else"

and a last one

"Never speak about you, either good, because we would not believe you, neither bad because we would believe that too much." (Translated by me).


I could spend the whole day to give such inspiring quotes ^^ Hope you like and you feel wise-d (don't know the verb).

AMEN, sir....

How true... biggrin.gif

Here is one of my favorites!! By John Lennon

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.
