This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. George Bernard Shaw
On preparing for his upcoming fight: I'm in the best shape of my life right now; I'm more experienced and more well-rounded than I was. I'm always learning when I train, and right now I feel like I'm a better and more improved version than before. I'm just very excited for this fight. Georges St-Pierre

I'm an optimist in the sense that I believe humans are noble and honorable, and some of them are really smart. I have a very optimistic view of individuals. As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups.

We don't seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids. Steve Jobs

I have to confess that I have so rarely experienced triumph that I cannot claim to know it well enough to judge, but it seems to be at best a momentary joy followed instantly by sadness, and, then, of necessity, by wariness. Mark Helprin
Am I melancholy? I certainly have moments. I like to think there's a capacity for joy as well. Stephen Dillane
He who binds to himself a joy Does the winged life destroy; But he who kisses the joy as it flies Lives in eternity's sun rise. William Blake
