Life is raw material. We are artisans. We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful, or debase it into ugliness. It's in our hands.

If you do not develop the hunger and courage to pursue your goal, you will lose your nerve and you will give up on your dream.
I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it if only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.
Your life is what your thoughts make it.
You have to do what you love to do, not get stuck in that comfort zone of a regular job. Life is not a dress rehearsal. This is it.
Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.
All men dream, but unequally. Those that dream at night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake the next day to find that their dreams were just vanity. But those who dream during the day with their eyes wide open are dangerous men; they act out their dreams to make them reality.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
You must go after your wish. As soon as you start to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and everything has meaning.
If one advances confidently in the directions of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose-and don't let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you have to). You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredible unfulfilled tapestry. And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Some people follow their dreams, others hunt them down and beat them mercilessly into submission.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands -- your own.
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
You have the courage and power to live your dreams.
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get one, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.
If your dream is a big dream, and if you want your life to work on the high level that you say you do, there's no way around doing the work it takes to get you there.
Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.
Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die tomorrow.
To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.
