Super Quotes #31 — Musicians
The truth is like the sun, the beauty of learning, and the essence of progress.
“The truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away.”
— Elvis Presley
No matter what your opinions or emotions are, the truth of life always supersedes. Truth is reality and, frankly, the real-world doesn’t care about anything else. Reality is all there is and there’s no escaping it.
To succeed in this world, you must accept the truths of life instead of ignoring or running away from them. Work with whatever life gives and try to make the best out of reality.
“The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.”
— BB King
The best investment you can ever make is in yourself.
Investing in yourself means developing new knowledge and skills. They become embedded within you, a part of who you are, and thus can never be taken away.
Money, power, fame, and fortune are much weaker in comparison. They are outside of you and thus can be lost at any moment.
“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.”
— Frank Zappa
Copying what other people are doing will only ever lead to mediocrity. If you want a different result, then you must do something different than others are doing.
So don’t worry if you see yourself deviating from the “normal“ work or lifestyle. It’s actually a good sign that you have a chance of succeeding.
