Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature. Be better than anyone here, and don’t give a damn what anyone thinks. There are no teams here, no buddies. You’re on your own. Be on your own.
Cristina Yang (via life-is-an-adventure—dare-it)
I want to be independent. To meet interesting people. … I just mean new people with clever things to say. Things I’ve never heard before. I want to be free. Open to whatever adventure comes along and sweeps me off my feet.
Do those things that incline you toward the big questions, and avoid the things that would reduce you and make you trivial.

You cannot find peace by avoiding life…
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.

Wrong timing.
Every time.

Successful people do what they need to do, whether they feel like it or not.
