Something I didn't even know was on my bucket list has been achieved. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner with Martha Stewart. I vow to follow the gospel of her teachings and do my very best in the remarkably less glamorous kitchen of my own home... without the luxury of magically appearing prep bowls filled by a staff of sous chefs.
I think when you begin to think of yourself as having achieved something then there's nothing left for you to work towards. I want to believe that there is a mountain so high that I will spend my entire life striving to reach the top of it.
I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement.
I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved.
What we want to do is reform the welfare system in the way that Tony Blair talked about 13 years ago but never achieved - a system that was created for the days after the Second World War. That prize is now I think achievable.
We never had planned to hijack a ship. We never thought of any war plans outside the Palestinian lands. We wished that the program had not failed and then the warriors could have achieved their goals.
There is nothing that war has ever achieved that we could not better achieve without it.
I have achieved what I wanted to achieve. I'm better off at some sort of independent place where they not only like what I produce but also trust me to be the one to produce it.
Time travel may be achieved one day or it may not. But if it is it should not require any fundamental change in world-view at least for those who broadly share the world view I am presenting in this book.
I think what drove me insane for a long time is feeling like I hadn't earned most of what I achieved because it came so fast.
Our markets have not achieved their great successes as a result of government fiat but rather through efforts of competing interests working to meet the demands of investors and to fulfill the promises posed by advancing technology.
Roman civilization had achieved within the bounds of its technology relatively as great a mastery of time and space as we have achieved today.
Nothing good comes in life or athletics unless a lot of hard work has preceded the effort. Only temporary success is achieved by taking short cuts.
Success in whatever form it takes is a tricky thing - once you've achieved your goal then what? Where do you aim?
Success depends in a very large measure upon individual initiative and exertion and cannot be achieved except by a dint of hard work.
In a way a certain amount of self-criticism is a good thing because it keeps you humble. Realizing that no matter what success you've achieved you can still make enemies makes you humble too.
Success is achieved by developing our strengths not by eliminating our weaknesses.
Indeed I regard the enduring support which I have received over the years from all sections of the community in Ballymena as being more than sufficient recognition for any success which I may have achieved as an actor.
Permanent success cannot be achieved except by incessant intellectual labour always inspired by the ideal.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play.
Temporary success can be achieved in spite of lack of other fundamental qualities but no advancements can be maintained without hard work.
I am doomed to an eternity of compulsive work. No set goal achieved satisfies. Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try and keep trying.
The battle of life is in most cases fought uphill and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success if there were nothing to struggle for there would be nothing to be achieved.
