Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
In fact, Mr. Watson, it's a queer world, and the longer I live in it the queerer I find it. Once I thought it would be a good idea to regulate things myself and run the world as it ought to be run; but I gave it up long ago. The world's a stage, they say; but the show ain't always amusing, by a long chalk, and sometimes I wish I didn't have a reserved seat.
L. Frank Baum
At long last I am able to say a few words of my own... You must believe me when I tell you that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love.

Any who may wish to profit himself alone from the knowledge given him, rather than serve others through the knowledge he has gained from learning, is betraying knowledge and rendering it worthless
I wish I could play the World Cup; that's one of my dreams.
True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.
Seneca the Younger
If you wish to achieve worthwhile things in your personal and career life, you must become a worthwhile person in your own self-development.
Hail hero, hail hero, let me see you smile You been gone for so damn long, I wish you'd stay awhile
You must go after your wish. As soon as you start to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and everything has meaning.
I support many organizations that I feel are doing the right thing, like Alonzo Mourning's foundation, Alicia Keys' foundation, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and other well-established foundations. I kick out a lot of time and money wherever I can.
