success

It feels like a moment I’ve lived a thousand times before, as if everything is familiar, right up to the moment of my death, that it will happen again an infinite number of times, that we will meet, marry, have our children, succeed in the ways we have, fail in the ways we have, all exactly the same, always unable to change a thing. I am again at the bottom of an unstoppable wheel, and when I feel my eyes close for death, as they have and will a thousand times, I awake.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.

John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Success is the best revenge for anything.

Ed Sheeran

I can’t tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

Ed Sheeran

If you really want flowers, dying seems to be the way to go.

Logan Echolls, Veronica Mars

Action is the foundational key to all success.

Pablo Picasso

I don’t want to be Angelina Jolie. Not that Angelina Jolie is not the most talented, beautiful, successful, amazing, admirable person who does good things for the world, but I don’t want to be a movie star like that. I don’t think there’s anything about being a celebrity that is desirable. I understand that everybody’s going to know who you are and what you look like, but why be so obsessive?

Kristen Stewart

A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.

Bob Dylan

There’s no success like failure, and failure’s no success at all.

Bob Dylan

People need to realise what real happiness and success is, because success as an actor is fleeting. You can be up there one day and gone the next.
