“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” – Oscar Wilde

This is a quote that can having you thinking for days. What is the purpose of life? What is living? Am I making the most out of my life? I like this quote because it makes you want to get off your butt and go do something productive. You only have one life, so don’t waste it.

“Don’t believe everything you see on the internet.”  – Abraham Lincoln

“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.” – Horace

“A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”

– William Shedd

A brilliant metaphor for life. We can play it safe and take risks, but then we are not living to our full potential. In order to be successful you have to put yourself out there and be willing to do the work.

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” – Mark Twain

This is one of my favorite quotes. People tend to have the feeling that they have certain entitlements just because they exist, when in all reality you have to work for them and earn them. It’s amazing to think that Twain wrote that over a century and a half ago and yet it still can be applied to life today.

“Remember, always be yourself…unless you suck.” – Joss Whedon

Joss the Boss. Joss Whedon is my hero! For those of you who don’t know, he is a director/producer/screen writer/comic book author/everything else imaginable. He has a natural gift to create these amazing stories and transfer them onto the big screen. And, as the quote exemplifies, he’s a very witty, tongue in-cheek short of guy. Fun Fact: He saved Toy Story. They called him in to salvage the disaster of a script they had. And we all know how Toy Story turned out.
