We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

It's only the view from where you sit that makes you feel defeat. Life is full of many aisles, so why don't you change your seat?
When it becomes more difficult to suffer than change -- then you will change.
In order to change, we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go.
Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.
Unless you try to do something beyond what you have mastered, you will never grow.
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.
When one is happy there is no time to be fatigued; being happy engrosses the whole attention.
That man is idle who can do something better.
Indecision is debilitating; it feeds upon itself; it is, one might almost say, habit-forming. Not only that, but it is contagious; it transmits itself to others.
Instinct is action taken in pursuance of a purpose, but without conscious perception of what the purpose is.
Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.
If life doesn't offer a game worth playing, then invent a new one.
The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
When the doors of opportunity swing open, we must make sure that we are not too drunk or too indifferent to walk through.
The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything or nothing.
People don't choose their careers; they are engulfed by them.
Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.
The undertaking of a new action brings new strength.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
Never confuse motion with action.
Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.
We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as courses, and they come back to us as effects.
Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen.
I go on working for the same reason that a hen goes on laying eggs.
Good things happen to those who hustle.
Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand -- and melting like a snowflake.
Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good action; try to use ordinary situations.
Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn't, do something else.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
The best way to get something done is to begin.
Sometimes you wonder how you got on this mountain. But sometimes you wonder, How will I get off?
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
