A man only needs 2 things:  A reason to get out of bed in the morning, and a reason to get back into it at the end of the night.” – Mike Konanec

“To have your passion as your profession, your best friend as your spouse, and that the world is, not so much a lesser place because of your death, but rather a better place because of your life… That is to have succeeded.” – Mike Konanec

I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who only dream by night.” – Edgar Allan Poe

“Some men are born to win, while others seem destined to lose… And then there are those poor souls who are too afraid to even try and play, which unfortunately constitutes most men...” – Mike Konanec

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, i want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been OPENED by life’s betrayals, or have become SHRIVELED and CLOSED from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or even your own. It doesn’t interest me if the story your telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be TRUE to Yourself, if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and NOT betray your own soul. I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore be trustworthy. I want to know if you can see beauty even when everyday is not pretty, and if you can source your life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine. It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied, i want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away…. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments….”

You can never go back… You have to live for today. Not for what was, or what could have been…and what will be, no one can say. But sometimes, you just have to step out on faith…” -Best Man

If you’re not willing to work hard, let someone else do it. I’d rather be with someone who does a horrible job, but gives 110% than with someone who does a good job and gives 60%” – Will Smith

“I would cling to unhappiness because it was a known, familiar state. When I was happier, it was because I knew I was on my way back to misery. I’ve never been convinced that happiness is the object of the game. I’m wary of happiness.“- Hugh Laurie

“One thing… The reason normal people have wives, and kids, hobbies, whatever… that’s because they ain’t got that one thing, that hits them that hard and that true… That thing you think about all the time. That thing that keeps you south of normal. Yea, makes us great… makes us the best. All we miss out on is everything else. No woman waitin at home after work with a drink and a kiss… that ain’t gonna happen for us. When it’s over… it’s over.“- House

Forget about likes and dislikes. They are of no consequence. Just do what must be done. This may not be happiness but it is greatness.”-Shaw

“People think it must be fun to be a super-genius, but they don’t realize how hard it is to put up with all the idiots of the world.” – Calvin

…the thing aboout basketball is you can lose yourself…theres no time to think or to worry… you just move and react… everything else just fades away…”

“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”-Paul Bryant

“I’d rather have a moment of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”

“One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.” – Mother Teresa

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind, don’t matter; and those who matter, don’t mind.” - Dr Suess

“Value yourself enough to choose to be with someone who wants you as much as you want them.”

You walked by me, room full of people, really bright light.  I caught your eye and you caught mine.  With a grin, I tried to walk by you and your hand reached out gently to mine.  before I was out of reach you grabbed me, like “Round 2 chick, this time I’m not letting you get away.  It was a room full of people, but no one else existed.

“Live the life you’ve dreamed.” – Henry David Thoreau

“Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.” – Richard L. Evans

“20 yrs from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor; Explore, Dream, Discover” – Mark Twain

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – E. M. Forster

“Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication.  Remember, all things are possible for those who believe.

“Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something.  You have a dream, you have to protect it.  People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it.  If you want something, go get it.  Period.” – Pursuit of Happyness

“The purpose of life is not to be happy.  it is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have to make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long.  if we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.” – Calvin
