21 thought-provoking 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 people’s attention and get them talking.

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 a need for sex drives us. 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 need the opportunity to be ready for sex, while women, above all, need to feel secure.

Nevertheless, given favourable circumstances, both men and women are capable of enjoying sex. This is reasonable given that it is, after all, quite natural.

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 already.

Quotes about sex (1-11):

  1. Sex is emotion in motion. ~Mae West
  2. Sex is God’s joke on human beings. ~Bette Davis
  3. I would rather have a cup of tea than sex. ~Boy George
  4. Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place. ~Billy Crystal
  5. Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go it’s pretty damn good. ~Woody Allen
  6. Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets. ~Andy Warhol
  7. The big difference between sex for money and sex for free is that sex for money usually costs a lot less. ~Brendan Behan
  8. Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. ~Oscar Wilde
  9. Sex is always about emotions. Good sex is about free emotions; bad sex is about blocked emotions. ~Deepak Chopra
  10. 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
  11. 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 

Quotes about sex (12-21):

  1. Sex without love is merely healthy exercise. ~Robert A. Heinlein
  2. Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature. ~Marilyn Monroe
  3. An intellectual is a person who’s found one thing that’s more interesting than sex. ~Aldous Huxley
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Sex appeal is fifty per cent what you’ve got and fifty per cent what people think you’ve got. ~Sophia Loren
  7. 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
  8. In my day we didn’t have sex education, we just picked up what we could off the television. ~Victoria Wood
  9. 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
  10. AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide or murder. ~Susan Sontag

50 Quotes by Dale Carnegie to inspire you today

Today I’ve curated some inspirational quotes By Dale Carnegie.

Dale Carnegie was an American writer and lecturer, and the developer of courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills.

Born into poverty on a farm in Missouri, Dale Carnegie went on to write some of the best self-help books I’ve ever read. His book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, should, in my opinion, be mandatory reading for any young person who wants to get on in the world. If you haven’t read it yet, then you should.

Anyway, with further ado, here are 50 great quotes by Dale Carnegie, and I hope at least some of them will inspire you.

Quotes by Dale Carnegie (1-10):

Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic.

Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.

Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.

The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.

Tell the audience what you’re going to say, say it; then tell them what you’ve said.

Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration, and resentment.

We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do.

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.

The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home, and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Quotes by Dale Carnegie (11-20):

If you want to be enthusiastic, act enthusiastic.

Fear not those who argue but those who dodge.

People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.

Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain – and most fools do.

Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.

If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home, and think about it. Go out and get busy.

There is only one way to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.

Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.

If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.

Today is life; the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.

Quotes by Dale Carnegie (21-30):

Applause is a receipt, not a bill.

Only the prepared speaker deserves to be confident.

If you want to gather honey, don’t kick over the beehive.

The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it.

The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.

You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing.

When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.

Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.

You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

Quotes by Dale Carnegie (31-40):

Speakers who talk about what life has taught them never fail to keep the attention of their listeners.

The expression a woman wears on her face is far more important than the clothes she wears on her back.

Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire.

First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.

If only the people who worry about their liabilities would think about the riches they do possess, they would stop worrying.

Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.

Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.

Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of success.

There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it.

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

Quotes by Dale Carnegie (41-50):

Those convinced against their will are of the same opinion still.

Each nation feels superior to other nations. That breeds patriotism – and wars.

The royal road to a man’s heart is to talk to him about the things he treasures most.

Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions; it is governed by our mental attitude.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.

You can close more business in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.

If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done.

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colourful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.

15 quotes about failure to put it into perspective

Today I offer you 15 quotes about failure to put it into perspective.

What is failure? We hear this word frequently, but what does it mean?

It’s easy to be crushed by what we believe is failure. However, in my opinion, there is no such thing as failure. There are only outcomes that we didn’t want and lessons to be learned.

It’s not about how many times you get knocked down, dear reader; it’s how many times you can get back up again and have another go until you get it right.

You cannot truly enjoy victory if you have not first known defeat.

And you cannot achieve anything without the experience of at least the occasional failure along the way.

Lessons to be learned:

Every master of their craft started as a complete beginner.

Before anyone was a success, they started as a beginner. And the road from beginner to achiever and master of your craft is inevitably littered with mistakes and failures. These are significant only for the lessons they teach us.

If you’re determined, persistent, and hungry for success, keep trying until you get where you want to go. And if you want to succeed, you’ll learn the lessons and then find a way to achieve your goal and realize your dream. If not, you’ll make excuses.

Never allow yourself to be overwhelmed by a sense of failure. It’s never fatal; at most, it’s just a minor setback from which you can recover. Above all, never, ever give up until you get to where you were trying to go.

Success can be yours if you want it badly enough. And remember this; it is better to try and fail than never to have tried at all.

Here are 15 quotes to help you put the idea of failure into perspective.

Quotes about failure (1-10):

  1. There is no such thing as failure. There are only results. ~Tony Robbins
  2. I can accept failure; everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying. ~Michael Jordan
  3. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. ~Winston Churchill 
  4. I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. ~Thomas A. Edison
  5. It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure. ~Bill Gates
  6. A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else. ~John Burroughs
  7. Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure. ~Paulo Coelho
  8. Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. ~Napoleon Hill
  9. A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying. ~B.F. Skinner
  10. You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. ~Johnny Cash

Quotes about failure (11-15):

  1. There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. ~Colin Powell
  2. Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. ~Theodore Roosevelt
  3. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. ~Steve Jobs
  4. It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default. ~JK Rowling
  5. Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday. ~Wilma Rudolph

21 Quotes by Marie Curie

I’m always intrigued by people who achieve success despite all the odds working against them. One such person is Marie Curie, a woman who made a name for herself in what was then an exclusively male profession in an age when women were very much second-class citizens. So, let’s explore some quotes by Marie Curie.

Marie Curie was a physicist and chemist who made pioneering contributions to the study of radioactivity.

She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and is the only person to have won Nobel Prizes in two different scientific fields (Physics in 1903 and Chemistry in 1911).

Marie Curie’s research laid the foundation for the development of nuclear physics and the treatment of cancer. She discovered two new elements, Polonium and Radium, and conducted ground-breaking research on their properties.

Marie Curie offers us some lessons worthy of note. What are the key lessons? (1) Find something that matters to you, (2) Pursue your interest with passion, and (3) Don’t let anyone or anything stop you.

Anyway, without further ado, here are 21 quotes by Marie Curie to get you thinking today.

Quotes by Marie Curie (1-10):

  1. Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.
  2. I am among those who think that science has great beauty.
  3. In science, we must be interested in things, not in persons.
  4. I was taught that the way of progress was neither swift nor easy.
  5. One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done.
  6. There are sadistic scientists who hurry to hunt down errors instead of establishing the truth.
  7. I am one of those who think like Nobel, that humanity will draw more good than evil from new discoveries.
  8. Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
  9. If I see anything vital around me, it is precisely that spirit of adventure, which seems indestructible and is akin to curiosity.
  10. After all, science is essentially international, and it is only through lack of the historical sense that national qualities have been attributed to it.

Quotes by Marie Curie (11-21):

  1. I have frequently been questioned, especially by women, of how I could reconcile family life with a scientific career. Well, it has not been easy.
  2. A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.
  3. I have no dress except the one I wear every day. If you are going to be kind enough to give me one, please let it be practical and dark so that I can put it on afterwards to go to the laboratory.
  4. Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing must be attained.
  5. You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity.
  6. Unknown in Paris, I was lost in the great city, but the feeling of living there alone, taking care of myself without any aid, did not at all depress me. If sometimes I felt lonesome, my usual state of mind was one of calm and great moral satisfaction.
  7. We should not allow it to be believed that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gearings, even though such machinery also has its beauty. Neither do I believe that the spirit of adventure runs any risk of disappearing in our world.
  8. In 1906, just as we were definitely giving up the old shed laboratory where we had been so happy, there came the dreadful catastrophe which took my husband away from me and left me alone to bring up our children and, at the same time, to continue our work of research.
  9. I tried out various experiments described in treatises on physics and chemistry, and the results were sometimes unexpected. At times, I would be encouraged by a little unhoped-for success; at others, I would be in the deepest despair because of accidents and failures resulting from my inexperience.
  10. Sometimes I had to spend a whole day mixing a boiling mass with a heavy iron rod nearly as large as myself. I would be broken with fatigue at the day’s end. Other days, on the contrary, the work would be a most minute and delicate fractional crystallization, in the effort to concentrate the radium.
  11. All my mind was centred on my studies, which, especially at the beginning, were difficult. In fact, I was insufficiently prepared to follow the physical science course at the Sorbonne, for, despite all my efforts, I had not succeeded in acquiring in Poland a preparation as complete as that of the French students following the same course.

This is the key to success in one lesson

Dear reader, would you like to know the key to success? It’s simple.

Success starts with making a decision. You decide what you want to achieve, and then you decide that you’re going to go out and get it.

Once your decision has been made, you pursue your objective with determination and tenacity, and you don’t allow anyone or anything to stop you.

In 1960, US President John Kennedy made a speech in which he said that by the end of that decade, the United States would put a man on the moon. And in 1969, the United States fulfilled the promise made by Kennedy.

Kennedy didn’t know how they would achieve the goal he articulated in 1960.

However, he believed in their ability to do it; he believed they could develop the technology to do it, and he made a decision that they would do it. However, ultimately, in making his promise, there was an element of risk.

Now there’s risk in everything we do, of course, and nothing exceptional will ever be achieved without some degree of risk along the way.

Lesser men and women may allow the fear of risk to stop them. However, men and women destined for great things will feel the fear, and they’ll do it anyway.

Greatness cannot be achieved without paying your dues along the way. That’s a fact.

Be fearless:

Anything worth having comes with a price tag, namely blood, sweat, and tears. So be bold, be strong, and pursue your dream with passion.

Yes, it will be challenging mentally and emotionally. And yes, plenty of people will tell you that it’s not possible or that you’re not quite good enough.

Well, don’t listen to the naysayers and negative Nellies. It matters not what they think, but only what you think. If you believe you can do it, then that’s all that matters.

If you want it, whatever it is, just keep pushing and never, ever give up until you get to where you want to be.

Greatness can be achieved by anyone with sufficient determination. People do succeed, and so can you.

So whatever it is you want to do, just go out there and do the damn thing. Do it now. Believe you can and you will.

If you’re still not convinced, then take a look at this video, which I think is a fantastic motivational speech.

The secret to happiness that everyone should know

If you’re reading this blog post, dear reader, perhaps you’ve been searching for the secret to happiness. If you have, you’re not alone. Many people search, but few find real happiness.

However, if happiness is what you seek, allow me to enlighten you.

Money’s not the answer:

When you hear news of someone winning big on a lottery, do you ever think that you’d be so much happier if only you could win big too? You’d be happy, if only you had a lot of money, right?

Certainly, having money can make life comfortable. There’s no question about that. And who wouldn’t want to be comfortable?

Having money can allow you to do all sorts of things you couldn’t do otherwise. Live in a nice house; wear the finest clothes; drive a nice car; and travel first class to exotic places.

However, there’s one thing that money cannot do for you. It cannot make you happy. It’s a fact that having a lot of money by itself can never make you happy. There are plenty of very wealthy people who are miserable.

Happiness is a state of mind:

It is also a fact that if you aren’t happy without money, then suddenly gaining a lot of money will not change the way you feel. If anything, its impact on your life will probably make you even less happy.

Happiness is a state of mind. It’s the capacity to appreciate life for what it is and not what you think you’d like it to be. It’s being content with what you have, whatever that is.

Happiness is a positive mental attitude, a willingness to see the good side of every situation, regardless of how bad it might be in reality, a determination to enjoy the moment, and being comfortable in your own skin.

Work towards creating your pot of gold, by all means, dear reader, but in doing so, never lose sight of what matters most.

The period of human life is short, and it goes by in the blink of an eye.

Yesterday has gone, and you may never know tomorrow. The here and now are the only certainties you have.

This moment is your life, so you must find a way to enjoy every moment. Get the most out of them all. For, as we say, where I come from, you’ll be a long time dead.

The secret to happiness:

Enjoy simple, inexpensive pleasures like having a laugh or a coffee with a friend. That’s when you’ll be happiest. That’s how memories are made, too.

Accept that your life will be full of challenges, which is what makes it all interesting.

And recognise that by having to respond to challenges, you are growing as a person. So it makes sense to respond to every challenge with enthusiasm because you can only win, ultimately. Either you’ll succeed, or you’ll learn a lesson.

And remember this too: as your life passes, you won’t remember those expensive shoes you bought or the latest gadget, but you will remember the experiences you had with the people who mattered most to you.

Enjoy life for what it is and don’t fret about what it isn’t. The secret to happiness is contentment.

If you can be happy without money, then having money will be a bonus.
