Famous people say things…things that stick with you. Some are insanely good and motivating where some are bathroom-wall material. Either way, looked at in the correct light you can apply them to different aspects of your life which will allow you to enjoy them that much more. I have no idea what these guys and gals were going through when they made these quotes, so I just took the liberty:
