Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
“All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant’s revolving door.”
Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.
There is no greatness without a passion to be great, whether it’s the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.
