quotes about achievement

Stress is what will lower your grade, stop you achieving, prevent you from doing what you love and so much more. Stress is poison to the human mind, do not let stress rule you. Take a minute, take a walk, take time out, but always bring yourself back into the game. Do not let stress win, keep going.

Stress is a killer by Amy Kennedy


He did everything with a big, open heart, and lots of love… He taught me that anything can be accomplished as long as you set out to do it with love.

“Ever tried, ever failed. No matter. Try again, fail again. Fail better.” 

In which Hux helps Kylo find his feet again after a series of failed missions. 

He never wanted to be the star of anything. But, that’s the place fate left him. He thought he was best as a team player. But we all know there was just too much great music in him to be contained by modesty.

When the Beatles ended all he had held inside came flowing out, manifesting itself in the 1970 album All Things Must Pass - a landmark LP that is still stunning by the quality of the songs and its complete originality. Like it or not, he was now the frontman of the band and more and more great music would flow from him the rest of his life.

It would take volumes to even list his musical achievements and I’m not going to try. His love of Indian music also produced volumes of lovely music, as well as creating a lasting influence on popular music. George truly was the peace and love guy. It wasn’t a fad for him. He walked the walk. He dropped some beautiful wisdom on us without preaching, and always keeping a sense of humor, he was forever mindful that we are all so, so human.

It’s my guess that he’s the only artist on tonight’s program who actually changed the world.

Hare Krishna.

Stop letting it go, sometimes you need to hold on and fight. If you let everything go you’ll have nothing left.

Things I’ve learned in 2015 - By Amy Kennedy



Happy Birthday, Gates McFadden — March 2, 1949!

“I think I’ m in love with yor cat. But if the cat is like, in a relationship I can be cool, maybe. [On her cat "Rudi”] We have an open relationship (he is seeing some of my neighbors) but we made a pact not to talk about it.“ [x/x]

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.
