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 Isha De Lubicz on obstacles and growth

The obstacles to the growth of intuitive knowledge are:

            •   Eagerness for results
            •   Use of the imagination, whether intellectually or emotionally
            •   Intrusion of irrelevant thoughts during meditation
            •   Ingratitude and skepticism when intuitive perceptions cannot yet be understood intellectually
            •   Self-complacency and unwillingness to confess mistakes
