“To believe in yourself and to follow your dreams, to have goals in life and a drive to succeed, and to surround yourself with the things and the people that make you happy - this is success!"
“There's a drive in me that won't allow me to do certain things that are easy.”
“Enthusiasm releases the drive to carry you over obstacles and adds
significance to all you do”
~Norman Vincent Peale
“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and
have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive
and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for
the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”
“The middle of the road is where the white line is, and that's the worst
place to drive.”
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living.
Then you read a book (Lady Chatterley, for instance), or you take a trip, or
you talk with Richard, and you discover that you are not living, that you are
hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first,
restlessness. The second symptom(when hibernating becomes dangerous
and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears
like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this
(or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car.
They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock
treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them
and saves them from death."
