A Quote by Randy Pausch on obstacles, drive, and determination

The brick walls are there for a reason. Right? The brick walls are not there to keep us out, the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough.

A Quote by David Edwards on hate, understanding, and determination

Hate can only exist in the absence of understanding; where understanding is present, hate cannot exist. ... Very often hate is the result of a determination not to understand, and this is why hate is so dangerous: it actually resists understanding.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on smile, practice, happiness, determination, and positive

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind.

A Quote by unknown on fear, determination, confrontation, and taking advantage of the moment

Meet up with your fears. If you’re afraid of sharks, go learn all about sharks. Get into the water with one. If you respect fear, face it straight on and act anyway. What you’ll find isn’t terror - it’s exhilaration and the moments that you never forget. - Laird Hamilton, Revolutionary Waverider
