Excitement

A Quote by Andy Warhol on love, action, and excitement

The most exciting thing is not doing it. If you fall in love with someone and never do it, it's much more exciting.

Andy Warhol (1931 - 1987)

A Quote by Robert Grudin on needs, desires, stress, danger, excitement, and past

We are wistful about the golden days of the past and dream of a distant future unclouded by necessity. But I suspect that if our inner souls were asked what in life they really missed, the answer would be primal danger and stress.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on halloween, college, costume, mask, persona, excitement, life, curiosity, chapel hill, and franklin street

Jefferson Street at Halloween made a Grateful Dead concert look like a Quaker fish fry. I wanted to be the curious little cell that moves among all the other little cells and gets to know every last one of them.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on excitement, zest, inspiration, and joy

Think excitement, talk excitement, act out excitement, and you are bound to become an excited person. Life will take on a new zest, deeper interest and greater meaning. You can think, talk and act yourself into dullness or into monotony or into unhappiness. By the same process you can build up inspiration, excitement and surging depth of joy.

Norman Vincent Peale (1898 - 1993)

A Quote by Bill Gates on davos, excitement, and passion

I remember going to Davos some years back and sitting on a global health panel that was discussing ways to save millions of lives. Millions! Think of the thrill of saving just one person’s life – then multiply that by millions. … Yet this was the most boring panel I’ve ever been on – ever. So boring even I couldn’t bear it.

What made that experience especially striking was that I had just come from an event where we were introducing version 13 of some piece of software, and we had people jumping and shouting with excitement. I love getting people excited about software – but why can’t we generate even more excitement for saving lives?

A Quote by Alan Cohen on courage, familiarity, security, adventure, excitement, life, and power

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

A Quote by unknown on adventure, life, exciting, excitement, imagination, and challenge

Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can choose a challenge instead of a competence.

A Quote by Jim Collins on dreams, motivation, vision, excitement, and success

Dreams make you click, juice you, turn you on, excite the living daylights out of you. You cannot wait to get out of bed to continue pursuing your dream. The kind of dream I'm talking about gives meaning to your life. it is the ultimate motivator.

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on enjoyment vs pleasure, exhilaration, arete, and excitement

Enjoyment, on the other hand, is not always pleasant, and it can be very stressful at times. A mountain climber, for example, may be close to freezing, utterly exhausted, and in danger of falling into a bottomless crevasse, yet he wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Sipping a piña colada under a palm tree at the edge of the turquoise ocean is idyllic, but it just doesn't compare to the exhilaration he feels on the windswept ridge.
