Where we rinse quotes for their deepest meaning


You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
Marian Wright Edelman:

Winning is a result just as losing is. Winning is not guaranteed. It can only be expected when the dedicated effort is regular. The more we try the more we eliminate the chances of failure, and increase those of winning. But all in all, trying is what enhances it. Trying exposes you to methods, those that work, those that don’t, those that hurt, and those that brings out our best. So don’t ask for the “magic pill” because that special procedure that is specific only to you will be revealed when you keep on trying.

A lot of people are waiting for Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi to come back – but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us. It is up to you.
Marian Wright Edelman:

The simple fact that we are in charge and full control of our life cannot be stressed enough. Wake up and realize you have that grip on the wheel, and wherever you decide, there goes your life. Our predecessors, our parents, our leaders can only do so much, and the rest is up to us. Everyday, you decide what to do every hour. It is up to you to make it positive or negative, productive or destructive. In contrast, you will be amazed how many have give up this control to others—friends, peers, parents, life’s forces etc. Simply arise and take charge…because it is up to you.

Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.
Mary Kay Ash:

When we let people explain to us the so many ways in which we cannot make it through our pursuit, this belief may infiltrate into us and paralyze us. What’s funny is, we are letting other people tell us what we are/ we are not capable of. No one else knows me as much as I do, and so long as I strongly believe this then I can achieve wonders to my and other people’s surprise. Not even nature or reality will stop me if I abolish any self-destructing, limiting belief in me. Sometime remaining ignorant to other people’s doubts and trusting our inner selves does the trick

Only do what your heart tells you.
Princess Diana:

Many times we feel that we are not good enough or experienced enough to dictate what our life should look like. As a result we end up being other people’s slaves by constantly doing what they think is best for us. With exceptions, only we know what is good for us only that we just don’t spend enough time with our selves (inner selves) to truly know what we really want out of life. During each day, set up sometime, 30 min. is enough, and in a quiet environment and focus meditatively on our inner selves for answers on who we are and what we want.

The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it is not without doubt but in spite of doubt.
Rollo May:

It is very easy to allow doubt slip into your mind. Thoughts, like waves, are transmitted into the atmosphere and will sometimes intrude our minds if we are in the same frequency as those thought processes. Doubt slows a process, halts a journey, and kills a dream. If you are content with yourself that what you doing is what you consider best for your life, then take off and be busy doing that very thing. Doubt will often seep in if you allow it. So search yourself, be content and remain committed to your grind.

Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Stephen Covey:

Without discipline, the most qualified and organized team will fail. Discipline is that raised bank besides the river that keeps the water on course till it arrives in the ocean. Discipline enables you to avoid detours, and remain focused till goal achievement… compromising this discipline even a little bit opens up a leak that will fail every effective management. It takes a lot of will to remain disciplined, but ultimately it gets us to achieve those goals dear to us.
