Three More Things

Just your weekly dose of inspiration or thoughts to ponder today guys. Enjoy and begin bending life over the table and having your wicked way with it.

"A person who never made a mistake is a person who never tried anything new"
There are a lot of variations of this too, some of which I'll probably end up posting, but this is true in whatever form it takes. You can't be afraid to make mistakes, mistakes are how we learn, especially how we learn what not to do. Provided we do actually learn from them.


"Only by going too far can one find out how far one can go"
It is true that you don't know how far you can really go until you've passed it. If you haven't passed that line yet, then keep going, keep going until you do, and then you'll know how far to go next time, and things will go a lot easier.

"I would rather make my name, than inherit it"
This one doesn't seem too inspirational, but it is something to ponder. Look at all the people who are famous just because their parents, or someone else in their family is famous. Then ask yourself if you could do that. I would much rather make my name, and if I became famous, or at least well known, and had kids, I'd hope they would not settle for simply being my children. When I was at school I was compared a lot to my brother, it was tiresome at times. Not to mention my art teacher actually knew my parents, and he was even at their wedding, so I was also compared to my dad by that guy. But me and him didn't like eachother much anyway lol.

Well at first I was worried this would be too short, but then I got into an anecdote, which automatically doubled it's length >_> Enjoy folks!

  2. If you go too far and pass the point of no return, it could end up very badly. And I've noticed that the third one is more for rich kids. They usually don't want to use their parents connections but make their own. I've never understood why. But then again, i've never been rich.

  11. One of my favourite quotes is:

    "Its better to remain silent and to be thought of as a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm it"

    which totally applies to like 3/4 of the people I know who chat shit regularly haha

  12. 2 Is something I've stumbled on a few too many times. It's a really frustrating one though you can at least attempt to go a little farther each time.

    Think I'll follow you.
