The tapas and the other hard yogas that were practiced in other yugas do not work now. What is needed in this yuga is giving, helping others. Believe in yourself and the world will be at your feet.

Every shot you don't take is a guaranteed miss.
The surest way not to fail is to determine to succeed.
Richard B. Sheridan
Every ceiling, when reached, becomes a floor, upon which one walks as a matter of course and prescriptive right.
We must have friendship for all, we must be merciful toward those that are in misery, when people are happy, we ought to be happy, and to the wicked we must be indifferent. These attitudes will make the mind peaceful.
Be strong ! You talk of ghosts and devils. We are the living devils. The sign of life is strength and growth. The sign of death is weakness. Whatever is weak, avoid ! It is death. If it is strength, go down into hell and get hold of it ! There is salvation only for the brave. "None but the brave deserves the fair". None but the bravest deserves salvation.
Love is a decision not an emotion or feeling, that if made from the heart will outlast anything.
They alone live, who live for others.
Growth and change are never easy... If it were easy, you would have done it long ago.
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.

Rodney L. Parsley
Love does not conquer all things, but it does set all things right.
It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.
It is not length of life, but depth of life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Learning is definitely not mere imitation or the ability to accumulate and conform to fixed knowledge. Learning is a constant process of discovery and never a concluding one. In JKD we begin not by accumulation but by discovering the cause of our ignorance, and oftentimes this involves a shedding process. Truth will not come until we have come to understand personally the whole process of the working of our being. After all, ultimately, knowledge in martial art simply means self-knowledge, and JKD can become intelligible only in the vigorous and constant process of self-inquiry and self-discovery.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
Barbara De Angelis
The heart has reasons that reason does not understand.
Jacques Benigne Bossuel
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in the future can be produced by our present actions, so we have to know how to act.
It is love alone that gives worth to all things.
Santa Teresa de Jesus
The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.
The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken.

I'd like to make her look a little more attractive. How far can you pull back ?
Rita, Cameraman (1982)
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.
There is no education like adversity.
When I was a young man, I found out that if you hurt somebody, they'll leave you alone. When I tried to leave everybody alone and just do my own thing, everybody just wanted to hurt me. Until one day I just decided, well, I've had enough of this picking. And there were like six young men still figuring they were going to mess with my head. And we went to war. To their surprise, I was no longer taking the beating, I was giving it.
All of the most successful human beings I've know were inwardly at war with themselves. Their turmoil was at least as great as our own, and sometimes greater. What distinguished these leaders was not some inner peace but rather how they had learned to organize their lives around a noble ambition and to focus on it.
A gentle hand may lead even an elephant by a single hair.
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
Who travels for love finds a thousand miles not longer than one.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great.
Hi-Yo, Silver !
The Lone Ranger, The Lone Ranger (1956)
Words do two major things : They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.
When a problem comes along, study it until you are completely knowledgeable. Then find that weak spot, break the problem apart, and the rest will be easy.

Wayne W. Dyer
Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is a freedom.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
I wouldn't give you two cents for all your fancy rules if, behind them, they didn't have a little bit of plain, ordinary, everyday kindness and a little looking out for the other fella, too.
Jefferson Smith, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939)
We go together, Laurie. I don't know why. Maybe like guns and ammunition go together.
Bart Tare, Gun Crazy (1949)
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Captain, Cool Hand Luke (1967)
The path to success is to take massive, determined action.
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Defeat is not bitter unless you swallow it.
The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant, they is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.

I always say a kiss on the hand might feel very good, but a diamond tiara lasts forever.
Lorelei, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice. No paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everyone.
Every action that helps us manifest our divine nature more and more is good, every action that retards it is evil.
Plan your progress carefully , hour-by hour, day-by-day, month-by-month. Organized activity and maintained enthusiasm are the wellsprings of your power. Planning for happiness is rarely successful. Happiness just happens.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
A martini. Shaken, not stirred.
James Bond, Goldfinger (1964)
There is no instinct like that of the heart.
It is quite possible to work without results, but never will there be results without work.
All the technology in the world will never replace a positive attitude.
The royal road to a man's heart is to talk to him about the things he treasures most.
The whole universe is only the self with variations, one tune made bearable by variations. Sometimes there are discords, but they only make the subsequent harmony more perfect. In this hell of a world one can bring a little joy and peace even for a day into the heart of a single person, that much alone is true, this I have learnt after suffering all my life, all else is mere moonshine.
The sun will come up tomorrow
Know thyself was the inscription over the Oracle at Delphi. And it is still the most difficult task any of us faces. But until you truly know yourself, strengths and weaknesses, know what you want to do and why you want to do it, you can not succeed in any but the most superficial sense of the word. The leader never lies to himself, especially about himself, knows his flaws as well as his assets, and deals with them directly. You are your own raw material. When you know what you consist of and why you want to make of it, then you can invent yourself.
Romance has been elegantly defined as the offspring of fiction and love.
To become a leader, then, you must become yourself, become the maker of your own life.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this way, and never again.
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
Those who wish to sing, always find a song.
The courage to be is the courage to accept oneself, in spite of being unacceptable.
Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore, make your own future.
Our imagination is the only limit to what we can hope to have in the future.
