Have you ever experienced people going far beyond what you imaged them to be ready to do in order to reach their goals? I don´t mean pushing themselves beyond their personal limits but pushing others out of their way. Well, I have. It does not make you feel good – that´s for sure. Here are some famous quotes dealing with the reasons for the abysmal depths of humanity: power, stupidity and envy….and how to deal with it.
Even though 62% of males and 48% of females play in competitive sports in the USA, almost 67% of US citizens are obese ranking them 3rd in the top 10 fattest countries in the world. Even though everybody likes winning competitions, this one is definitely not the sort you´re longing to win. Success usually goes along with status, prosperity and a good feeling about yourself and your achievements. Nevertheless, few people succeed right away. Usually, the first attempt is followed by failure, followed by a second attempt and so on. I guess the most important thing in sports and life is not to give up. Here are some of my favorite quotes on sports and success.
In 2006 Louann Brizendine, the director of San Francisco´s Women´s Mood and Hormone Clinic, claimed that women used about 20000 words, whereas men apparently got on with as little as 7000 words. Thanks to Science magazine researchers put this assertion right as Texanian studies showed women to use an average of 16250 words per day and men communicated using 15669 words per day. With the difference in numbers being nowhere near statistical significance, men and women actually need the same number of words in their everyday life. But just like anywhere else in life, quality is more important than quantity. Thus, I would like to leave you thinking about these quotes. Maybe you also consider them inspiring, funny or simply true.
