15 Quotes by Bill Bryson

Quotes by Bill BrysonBorn in Des Moines, Iowa, Bill Bryson is an American author who came to prominence in the United Kingdom with the book Notes from a Small Island in 1995. This book was an exploration of Britain and it was accompanied by a television series.

Bill Bryson has subsequently written numerous books on travel, the English language, science and other non-fiction topics. His books are warm and witty and they are a pleasure to read.

In fact reading Bill Bryson’s travel books is often a better experience than actually going there yourself I think.

They are all excellent and I recommend them highly.

Here are 15 quotes by Bill Bryson to give you a flavour for his observations.

Quotes by Bill Bryson:

  1. You may find that your parents are the most delightful people, but you don’t want to live with them. ~Bill Bryson
  2. I’ve never quite understood that feeling: that you arrive in a strange place, yet you want to have nothing but familiar experiences. ~Bill Bryson
  3. My first rule of consumerism is never to buy anything you can’t make your children carry. ~Bill Bryson
  4. In any area of human endeavour, there’s going to be mediocrity. You’re going to find people who get money that they shouldn’t get. ~Bill Bryson
  5. Personally, I’ve never been attracted to danger. It’s not my sort of thing. I am more attracted to pubs and cafes. The known, safe and comfortable world. ~Bill Bryson
  6. A world without newspapers or a world where the newspapers are purely electronic and you read them on a screen is not a very appealing world. ~Bill Bryson
  7. In order to have quality journalism, you need to have a good income stream and no Internet model has produced a way of generating income that would pay for good-quality investigative journalism. ~Bill Bryson
  8. To me, the greatest invention of my lifetime is the laptop computer and the fact that I can be working on a book and be in an airport lounge, in a hotel room, and continue working; I fire up my laptop, and I’m in exactly the same place I was when I left home. That to me, is a miracle. ~Bill Bryson
  9. England was full of words I’d never heard before – streaky bacon, short back and sides, Belisha beacon, serviettes, high tea, ice-cream cornet. ~Bill Bryson
  10. Although I was always very happy in Britain, I never stopped thinking of America as home, in the fundamental sense of the term. It was where I came from, what I really understood, the base against which all else was measured. ~Bill Bryson
  11. The world is very lucky to have America. It’s got to be the first time in the whole history of the planet that a country has been the dominant force in the world and it has actually been a force for good… America really deserves more credit. ~Bill Bryson
  12. Very little of what America does is actually bad, and I don’t think it ever does anything anywhere that is intentionally bad. I mean, sometimes we make mistakes and bad judgments and kind of back the wrong regimes and things, but by and large what America does is really good. ~Bill Bryson
  13. I can’t imagine there has ever been a more gratifying time or place to be alive than America in the 1950s. No country had ever known such prosperity. ~Bill Bryson
  14. I always tell people there’s only one trick to writing: You have to write something that people are willing to pay money to read. It doesn’t have to be very good, necessarily, but somebody, somewhere, has got to be willing to pay money for it. ~Bill Bryson
  15. Science has been quite embattled. It’s the most important thing there is. An arts graduate is not going to fix global warming. They may do other valuable things, but they are not going to fix the planet or cure cancer or get rid of malaria. ~Bill Bryson

5 brilliant quotes and what they all really mean

Brilliant Quotes

Looking for some brilliant quotes dead reader? Well, I’ve found five today which I think are interesting. They all have an underlying message well worth bearing in mind too.

So here are those quotes and I’ve included my own notes as to what I think they really mean. I hope you find them interesting too.

Brilliant Quotes:

Quote 1:

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. ~George Bernard Shaw

OBSERVATION:

Better to have a go and get it wrong than not have a go at all.

By making mistakes we learn valuable lessons. We hone our skills and get better at what we do.

Making mistakes is an important part of life. From mistakes, we can profit, whereas doing nothing gets us absolutely nowhere. From mistakes, we gain experience and experience is a valuable commodity.

Quote 2:

Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it’s you who will get you where you want to go, no one else. ~Les Brown 

OBSERVATION:

You are the captain of your own ship. You can steer it to where you want to go or not. It’s up to you.

It takes hard work, determination and a positive mental attitude.

It requires a willingness to rise to challenges and have a go.

You will have to overcome setbacks occasionally and you must never, ever give up.

You’ll be defined not by what happens to you but how you respond to what happens to you.

If you don’t succeed in life, it’s not the fault of your parents, it’s not the fault of the Government and it’s not the fault of your employer.

You are responsible for your own life.

You may have had a tough start in life. Life may have dealt you a poor set of cards. You may not have too many formal qualifications. So what?

Plenty of people overcome a difficult early life to become very successful.

So don’t make excuses. If you want success, then go for it.

The choice is yours. Decide where you want to be and then decide how you’re going to get there. Get started now and accept you’ll make a few mistakes along the way.

By doing, you’ll learn and gradually you’ll adjust the course of the good ship ‘You’ and set sail for the destination of your dreams.

It can be done and people do. Why not you? And why not start right now?

Quote 3:

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. ~John F. Kennedy

OBSERVATION:

As human beings, we can find change an uncomfortable experience.

One of the most basic human needs is the need to feel secure.

Change makes us feel insecure and that’s why we can often struggle to accept it. Yet change is inevitable.

Without change we’d all still be living in caves, surely? We could not have progress without change.

Change creates opportunity and that’s why it’s important that we embrace change.

It may be uncomfortable but embracing change can also be thrilling.

If you want your life to improve then it starts with embracing change.

Change will help you create the future you want and deserve.

So take that tiger for a ride and embrace change. If nothing else you’ll lead a life worth living.

Quote 4:

Open your eyes; look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living? ~Bob Marley

OBSERVATION:

You don’t have to accept your life as it is.

Ask yourself, “Am I willing to accept life as it is or am I prepared to improve my life?”

What is it you want?

Decide what you want and then identify the changes you need to make.

Nothing will happen until you decide to change.

However, once you decide you really want to change then great things can happen to you. Nevertheless, you must remember; success will not happen overnight.

Think incremental change rather than revolutionary change. You will not get to where you want to be in one leap.

If you’re trying to eat an elephant then that can only be done one bite at a time. You cannot swallow it whole, can you?

One bite at a time and it can be done, if you apply yourself to the task and keep going for as long as it takes.

Never be discouraged and never let other people dissuade you from pursuing your dreams. It doesn’t matter whether they believe you can do it. The only thing that matters is that you believe you can do it.

Believe in yourself and you can become the person you have the potential to be. Why would you not want to achieve your full potential?

Quote 5:

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

OBSERVATION:

At school they ask you what you want to be. Most people have no idea really but they pick something anyway in the hope that it might prove to be interesting and fun to do.

That’s where life’s experiment starts.

You try something and see whether it’s the right thing for you.

Then, even if you think it is initially, over time you might feel the need to move on.

The more you experiment, the more chance you have of finding that sweet spot where you are doing something which you not only enjoy but at which you excel too. That something for which you have a talent.

It’s the Holy Grail in terms of finding your life’s purpose.

If you can find it then all the experimentation is well worthwhile.

If you haven’t found it yet then, whatever your age, don’t stop looking and experimenting. It’s never too late to find your true vocation.

7 inspirational quotes about experience

Education is a fine thing but absolutely nothing beats experience.

There is nothing anyone can tell you that will be more valuable to you than doing it for yourself, getting your fingers burned and learning from the experience.

You’ll forget many things you were taught in a classroom but you won’t forget your mistakes, mishaps and the experience you got from them.

So don’t worry about making mistakes for mistakes can be pure gold, providing you don’t repeat them too often.

From mistakes you’ll get experience and experience is a valuable and much sought after commodity.

As a hiring manager, I value people with experience. The more experience you have the less likely you are to make mistakes whilst you’re on my payroll. So it’s good business to hire for experience I think.

However let me add, I’m not dismissing the value of education. I can tell you now that education is important too dear reader.

Learning is an investment in you and it can pay great dividends.

The higher your level of education, the more you can earn potentially. Learning is a lifelong process, so don’t forget you must always keep your knowledge current.

And if you have both experience and knowledge then you can go as far as your ambition and determination will take you.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about experience to reinforce today’s message.

Quotes about experience:

  1. The only source of knowledge is experience. ~Albert Einstein
  2. Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes. ~Oscar Wilde
  3. Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience. ~Paulo Coelho
  4. People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
  5. Experience is the teacher of all things. ~Julius Caesar
  6. If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience. ~Mao Zedong
  7. Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Helen Keller

15 Quotes by Claudius Galen

I’ve always been a sucker for a good quote and I have a fairly comprehensive knowledge of all the most inspirational and influential philosophers in history, worthy of my attention.

Naturally I thought that I was really well-acquainted with the wisdom of the ancients. Well now, how wrong could I possibly be?

Just recently I was introduced to someone I should have known about, whom for whatever reason had never quite gotten on to my radar screen. That person was Claudius Galen and so I just had to go searching for some of his quotes.

Today I offer you 15 of the quotes by Claudius Galen that I discovered in the process.

In case he’s new to you too dear reader, Claudius Galen, also known as Claudius Galenus or Aelius Galenus, is believed to have been born around 131 AD. Known for being a gifted intellect, he was a Greek physician and a writer on medicine and philosophy.

He went to Rome and revived the ideas of Hippocrates and other Greek doctors. His theories dominated European medicine for well over a millennium. The Romans had shown little interest in the work of Hippocrates and it took Galen to push it forward in Rome.

That his ideas live on says much about his contribution to philosophical thinking. So here are today’s quotes. What do you think?

Quotes by Claudius Galen:

  1. Who are you? What do you want? Where are you going? ~Claudius Galen
  2. Who do you serve and who do you trust? ~Claudius Galen
  3. The physician is Nature’s assistant. ~Claudius Galen
  4. The best physician is also a philosopher. ~Claudius Galen
  5. That which is, grows, while that which is not, becomes. ~Claudius Galen
  6. Look to the nervous system as the key to maximum health. ~Claudius Galen
  7. If sometimes dreams come true, what of our nightmares? ~Claudius Galen
  8. Employment is nature’s physician and is essential to human happiness. ~Claudius Galen
  9. That physician will hardly be thought very careful of the health of others who neglects his own. ~Claudius Galen
  10. Those who are enslaved to their sects are not merely devoid of all sound knowledge, but they will not even stop to learn. ~Claudius Galen
  11. The reason that I keep writing is that all my most powerful messages about the fates of wild places that I care about need to have words as well as images. ~Claudius Galen
  12. The combination of pictures and words together can be really effective, and I began to realise in my career that unless I wrote my own words, then my message was diluted. ~Claudius Galen
  13. The chief merit of language is clearness, and we know that nothing detracts so much from this as do unfamiliar terms. ~Claudius Galen
  14. He who has two cakes of bread, let him dispose of one of them for some flowers of the narcissus; for bread is the food of the body, and the narcissus is the food of the soul. ~Claudius Galen
  15. When we tune in to an especially human way of viewing the landscape powerfully, it resonates with an audience. ~Claudius Galen

21 thought-provoking quotes about sex

Quotes about sex Few subjects can be more controversial than sex, wouldn’t you agree dear reader?

Increasingly less so nowadays possibly, but even today sex is guaranteed to attract peoples’ attention and get them talking.

And everyone has a different opinion as to what is right and wrong when it comes to the subject of sex.

Let’s not forget that sex is a useful marketing tool for anyone seeking to sell almost anything. As the old business saying goes, “Sex sells!”

The truth is we’re all fascinated by sex and we’re driven by a need for sex. The instinct for procreation is within us all.

Men and women may look at sex differently but Nature has programmed us all with the urge to procreate.

We all have needs in that direction. Men just need the opportunity to be ready for sex, whilst women above all need to feel secure.

Nevertheless, given favourable circumstances, both men and women are capable of enjoying sex. Which is reasonable given that it is, after all, quite natural, isn’t it?

However, the obvious question for me is, “Can there be anything more absurd than two people uncontrollably engaged in the act of sex?” It’s as if God has played a joke on us all. What do you think?

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about sex to help you form an opinion, if you haven’t got one already.

Quotes about sex:

  1. Sex is emotion in motion. ~Mae West
  2. Sex is God’s joke on human beings. ~Bette Davis
  3. Sex without love is merely healthy exercise. ~Robert A. Heinlein
  4. Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature. ~Marilyn Monroe
  5. I would rather have a cup of tea than sex. ~Boy George
  6. Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place. ~Billy Crystal
  7. Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go it’s pretty damn good. ~Woody Allen
  8. Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets. ~Andy Warhol
  9. The big difference between sex for money and sex for free is that sex for money usually costs a lot less. ~Brendan Behan
  10. Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. ~Oscar Wilde
  11. Sex is always about emotions. Good sex is about free emotions; bad sex is about blocked emotions. ~Deepak Chopra
  12. Everything is about sex and that’s fine for me. I’m not saying I don’t like it. But I don’t think it should be everywhere, where kids are exposed to everything sexual. Because they have to have some innocence; there’s just no innocence left. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  13. There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain. ~Audrey Hepburn
  14. An intellectual is a person who’s found one thing that’s more interesting than sex. ~Aldous Huxley
  15. I haven’t trusted polls since I read that 62% of women had affairs during their lunch hour. I’ve never met a woman in my life who would give up lunch for sex. ~Erma Bombeck
  16. I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was ‘the man goes on top and the woman underneath.’ For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds. ~Joan Rivers
  17. Sex appeal is fifty per cent what you’ve got and fifty per cent what people think you’ve got. ~Sophia Loren
  18. To me, it’s not the end of the world if I end up not being with someone. I love romance. I love sex. I love men’s company, but I don’t feel I have to be married. Men are a wonderful part of life, like chocolate. But my life goes on whether they’re there or not. ~Jerry Hall
  19. In my day we didn’t have sex education, we just picked up what we could off the television. ~Victoria Wood
  20. I don’t know what sex appeal is. I don’t think you can have sex appeal knowingly. The people who seduce me personally are the people who seem not to know they’re seductive, and not to know they have sex appeal. ~Omar Sharif
  21. AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide or murder. ~Susan Sontag

15 Quotes by Muhammad Ali

Many people imagine they’re famous but few experience genuine fame and the universal recognition that it brings with it.

One such person is the legendary, three-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Born Cassius Clay, he rose above his humble beginnings to become one of the most recognizable and respected faces on the planet. He was also an inspiration to us all.

As well as being a respected sportsman he was also a respected thinker.

Consequently, the many memorable and thought-provoking quotes he left us, continue to offer an insight into the personal philosophy that drove Muhammad Ali to become such a great champion.

I believe the 15 quotes by Muhammad Ali included here today prove my point.

Muhammad Ali was driven to become a champion and if his philosophy worked for him, then it can work for you too.

So here are 15 of the very best quotes by Muhammad Ali.

Quotes by Muhammad Ali:

  1. I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was. ~Muhammad Ali
  2. A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life. ~Muhammad Ali
  3. He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. ~Muhammad Ali
  4. Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~Muhammad Ali
  5. Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong. ~Muhammad Ali
  6. Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even. ~Muhammad Ali
  7. It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe. ~Muhammad Ali
  8. I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. ~Muhammad Ali
  9. At home I am a nice guy: but I don’t want the world to know. Humble people, I’ve found, don’t get very far. ~Muhammad Ali
  10. Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. ~Muhammad Ali
  11. Don’t count the days; make the days count. ~Muhammad Ali
  12. It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am. ~Muhammad Ali
  13. If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize. ~Muhammad Ali

7 inspirational quotes about marriage

Inspirational quotes about marriageMarriage can be a thorny subject for some and the source of great pleasure for others. If a successful marriage is your aim then you’ll need to master the art of compromise, as well as choosing a life partner for whom you have the greatest respect and whose company you enjoy.

Friendship is at the heart of any successful marriage and friendship is a relationship of equals.

That means the power dynamic in your relationship must be balanced. Both parties must feel that their needs are being met.

You’re a team and as with all teams, each of you has a role to play. One person cannot be expected to bear the burden of doing everything whilst the other person does nothing. That’s not fair, nor is it sustainable.

A successful marriage can be your greatest investment. Choose your partner wisely and a successful relationship can be yours; fail to choose carefully and it could prove to be painful for all concerned.

So today I offer you seven inspirational quotes about marriage to help you reflect on what is one of life’s great institutions.

Remember this; choose well and nurture your relationship and it can last a lifetime.

Find the right partner and you’ll appreciate their presence in your life with each passing year and much more so as you get older.
