„Let me tell you the secret of such so-called successes as there have been in my life, and here I believe I give you really good advice. It was to burn my boats and demolish my bridges behind me. Then one loses no time in looking behind, when one should have quite enough to do in looking ahead...“

—  Fridtjof Nansen, Rectorial address delivered at St. Andrews University, 3 November 1926. Translated in

„My advice is precisely the advice my mother gave me. If you believe you have talent, the next thing you must have is determination.“

—  Cass Elliot American singer 1941 - 1974
Context: My advice is precisely the advice my mother gave me. If you believe you have talent, the next thing you must have is determination. If you keep working, keep striving, and try always to move forward a little bit with every job you do, you’ll eventually make it. And I believe that! As quoted in "Twenty Questions for Mama Cass" by Frederick Todd in American Girl magazine (June 1970)

„Could you look me in the eye? And tell me that you're happy now? Would you tell it to my face? Or have I been erased? Are you happy now?“

—  Michelle Branch American singer-songwriter and guitarist 1983
Context: Now, don't just walk away. Pretending everything's okay, and you don't care about me. And I know there's just no use, when all your lies become your truths and I don't care. Could you look me in the eye? And tell me that you're happy now? Would you tell it to my face? Or have I been erased? Are you happy now? Are you happy now? "Are You Happy Now?"
