The people who had been recognized for making original contributions shared many more stories that started negatively but surged upward: they struggled early and triumphed later. Despite being confronted with more negative events, they reported greater satisfaction with their lives and a stronger sense of purpose.
Al Franken
Politics is not just about power and money games, politics can be about the improvement of people's lives, about lessening human suffering in our world and bringing about more peace and more justice. -Paul Wellstone (Minnesota Senator, Al Franken predecessor)

Good becomes better by playing against better, but better doesn't become the best by playing against good.
Andrew Loomis
One's skill is never complete, one's knowledge is forever lacking, one's taste is invariably altered, one's opinion ever subject to controversy. There is a complete and constant urge towards improvement.
Angela Flournoy
I don't just sit around hopin for nothing. I do shit. It's the 'hope' part that fucks that line all up. You should change it to somethin like, 'We fight for better things,' or 'We work for better things.' Or 'We plan for better things.' That's what's wrong with this city; it ain't about the mayor. Too many people busy hoping shit will get better to actually figure out a way to make shit better.

Keep Trying is what it means to resolve to do something.
Auliq-Ice
A FAILED RESOLUTION IS NOT THE FAULT OF RESOLUTIONS.
Auliq-Ice
Dreams become regrets when left in the mind, never planted in the soil of action.
Auliq-Ice
To be resolved to something is a reflection of your inner core, not the nature of resolving.
Auliq-Ice
The dream provides inspiration and motivation. The goal generates drive and momentum. But daily effort on the details is the fuel that gets you to your dream.
Auliq-Ice
Never become impatient with the process, bored with the pace, frustrated at the meager results, just keep trying.
Auliq-Ice
Never give up because when you give up, dreams get lost.
Avina Celeste
If you live the same day, week, or year that you have always lived, your life will never get any better. Let yourself actually live. Fix what is broken in your life. Explore what you have left unexplored. Find the discomfort of the new and embrace it. Enjoy all that life has to offer.
Avina Celeste
I have no regrets from my past only pride over how far I have come to be the person I am today and hope that tomorrow I will be even better.
Avina Celeste
Take my hand, hold on tight, and together we will jump. Jump out of the darkness and into the blinding light. I don't know what struggle we will experience out there but I believe it is better than struggling here in the darkness. Together let's change our lives. Let us take risks to create a better life. I believe.
Bob Dylan
Act the way you'd like to be and soon you'll be the way you'd like to act.
Carson McCullers
Her face felt like it was scattered in pieces and she could not keep it straight. The feeling was a whole lot worse than being hungry for any dinner, yet it was like that. I want--I want--I want--was all that she could think about--but just what this real want was she did no know.
Criss Jami
Good...if you've done things you aren't proud of. It means you have a conscience.
Criss Jami
With no positivity, there is no hope; with no negativity, there is no improvement.
Criss Jami
I'm never proud of my old work. I always feel as though my skills have since improved.
Criss Jami
The barrier during self-improvement is not so much that we hate learning, rather we hate being taught. To learn entails that the knowledge was achieved on one's own accord - it feels great - but to be taught often leaves a feeling of inferiority. Thus it takes a bit of determination and a lot of humility in order for one to fully develop.
Criss Jami
It's much easier on the emotions when one sees life as an experiment rather than a struggle for popularity.
Cristen Rodgers
Oh, of course I stumble. There are times when I'm confidently skipping along and then I trip over my own poorly-placed steps and fall face first into the thickets. But I think there's a sort of beauty in falling. Each time I fall, I'm reminded that I'm still human, that I'm still learning, that there will always be more lessons, growth, and discovery up ahead. So, although I have times when I'm weak, when I'm critical of myself, or I lose hope, I wouldn't give them up for the world. I cherish them

Desmond Ong
Knowing the man responsible for your success is in the mirror is a high that you can never buy
Efrat Cybulkiewicz
In order to fit our needs and wants, we are constantly adjusting and altering our behaviors and feelings. Metaphorically speaking, we are constantly giving birth to priorities; our priorities are perpetually reassessed and we perpetually adjust to accomplish them.Some call this Change. I call it, improving ourselves by means through the inner self.
Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Divorce and separation, is the realization that, one of the two, no longer is growing his or her way to prosperity, next to that other person.

We cannot keep on blaming the past leaders about the present circumstances. We need to be mindful that if we do nothing to improve the present circumstances, our children will also blame us in the future.
H.G. Wells
We are kept keen on the grindstone of pain and necessity.
H.G. Wells
Oh, Lord! don't I know it's difficult! ... Don't I know that perhaps it's impossible! But it's the only way to do it. Therefore, I say, let's try to get it done. And everybody says, 'difficult, difficult,' and nobody lifts a finger to try. And the only real difficulty is that everybody for one reason or another says that it's difficult. It's against human nature. Granted! Every decent thing is. It's socialism. Who cares?
Harry Belafonte
When Hughes writes, in the first two lines of his poem, Let America be America again/ Let it be the dream it used to be, he acknowledges that America is primarily a dream, a hope, an aspiration, that may never be fully attainable, but that spurs us to be better, to be larger. He follows this with the repeated counterpoint, America never was America to me, and through the rest of this remarkable poem he alternates between the oppressed and the wronged of America, and the great dreams that they have for their country, that can never be extinguished.

It is as simple as that. Birds fly because they have wings and so when you can't grow the wings, you can't be called a bird. Leaders make impacts because they create new ideas and so if you can't think of any new innovative ideas, you can't be a leader.
Israelmore Ayivor
Never deviate from the right way and you will improve.
Israelmore Ayivor
Every great leader once fell down from a tall ladder. You don't become a star until you get the scar. Take that risk now.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders inform, inspire and improve people. They educate, empower and enrich the value of their followers. They make impacts.
Israelmore Ayivor
Until you fall in love with positive change, becoming passionate about improving the status quo, you won't become a leader.
Israelmore Ayivor
A person with low standards will forever be walking. A person with high standard will soon stop walking and start running. Later, they'll soon stop running and start galloping. The next time you see him, he's either flying or soaring.
Israelmore Ayivor
Grow your talents and skills through a consistent practice and progressive learning. Learn to relearn and unlearn. Raise the bar for yourself always.
Israelmore Ayivor
To become better you, look nowhere else for greatness. All you need to improve and succeed are right there in you.
Israelmore Ayivor
Change plus innovation equals progress!
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't fall in love with mediocrity. The status quo isn't their desire to maintain but to improve.
Israelmore Ayivor
A leader's goal is to improve on upon the past and if your goal is to remain where you are, doing the same things you have done times and times again, you can't lead.
Israelmore Ayivor
When you decide to be better than you were yesterday and maintain this attitude, you are going to the peak.

The guilt you felt when you were smiling and others were suffering, the guilt you felt when you were petty with friends and impatient with your parents, when you were rude to your teachers and didn't stand up for strangers, that guilt is marvellous. It proves that you are human, that you want to be better. Thank this guilt for teaching you, for making you aware. And now endeavour to better yourself. It is a lifelong work to become the person we want to be.
