Fishes for the Bear

All of us need food to survive like a polar bear needs fishes to feed on. Just like that our mind requires food. We need it to think, we need it to act, we need it to do the things we want to do. We need it to be something. Words inspire me, they motivate me. On this page I will post every word that has an effect on me, that galvanizes and inspirits me.

p.s. I will not quote any religious figure and text

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul. 

Invictus - William Ernest Henley


We hold these truths to be self-evident:
That all men are created equal,
That they are endowed by their Creator,
With certain inalienable rights;
That among these are life, liberty
And the pursuit of happiness.

Declaration of Independence - Thoman Jefferson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. 
- Nelson Mandela 

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
- Michelangelo 

That which we do for ourselves we take to our graves, That which we do for others in this world lives on for eternity.


...the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

There is a thought in your mind right now. The longer you hold on to it, the more you dwell upon it, the more life you give to that thought. Give it enough life, and it will become real. So make sure the thought is indeed a great one.
- Ralph Martson 

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
- Groucho Marx 

According to the laws of aerodynamics, the bumblebee can't fly either, but the bumblebee doesn't know anything about the laws of aerodynamics, so it goes ahead and flies anyway.
- Igor Sikorsky

Truly, my dear young friends, you are a chosen generation. I hope you will never forget it. I hope you will never take it for granted. I hope there will grow in your hearts an overpowering sense of gratitude to God, who has made it possible for you to come upon the earth in this marvelous season of the world's history.
- Gordon B. Hinckley

I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment.
- Nelson Mandela

Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
- Anna Freud

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
- Golda Meir

I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

All charming people, I fancy, are spoiled. It is the secret of their attraction.

If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
- Earl Wilson

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself. 
- Alan Alda

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
