** QUOTES & SPEECHES **

POETRY CAN BE SPARKED BY ANYTHING YOU SEE, THROUGHOUT MY LIFE I HAVE STUMBLED ACROSS QUOTES & SPEECHES THAT SEEM TO STICK IN MY SUBCONSCIOUS MIND AS INSPIRATIONAL MOMENTS OF HISTORY, QUOTES WHICH SCULPTURED AND GAVE HOPE TO A GENERATION

(PLEASE FEEL FREE TO POST ALL THE QUOTES YOU LOVE AS COMMENTS ON THIS POST)

*********************************************************************************************************

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the color of their skin,
but by the content of their character.”

– Martin Luther King-

**************************************************************************************************************

“Only God Can Judge Me
That which does not kill me can only make me stronger. I don’t see why everybody feel as though that they gotta tell me how to live my
life ”

-Tupac Shakur-

***********************************************************************************************************

My mama always used to tell me: ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for

-Tupac Shakur-

******************************************************************************************************

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Oscar Wilde

*******************************************************************************************************

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.”

-Bob Marley-

************************************************************************************************

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.”

-Bob Marley-

*********************************************************************************************************

“I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter.”

-Winston Churchill-

*******************************************************************************************************

“If you are going to go through hell, keep going.”

-Winston Churchill-

****************************************************************************************************

“’You are drunk Sir Winston, you are disgustingly drunk. ‘Yes, Mrs. Braddock, I am drunk. But you, Mrs. Braddock are ugly, and disgustingly fat. But, tomorrow morning, I, Winston Churchill will be sober.”

-Winston Churchill-

**********************************************************************************************************

KEEP MOVING FORWARD

“You aren’t going to believe this, but you use to fit right here, I’d hold you up and say to your Mother ‘this kid is going to be the best kid in the world, this kid is going to be somebody better than anybody ever knew’.

And you grew up good and wonderful; it was great just watching, everyday was like a privilege.

Then the time came for you to be your own man, and take on the world, and you did. But somewhere along the line you changed, you stopped being you, you let people stick a finger in your face, and tell you you’re no good.

And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame… like a big shadow”.

Let me tell you something you already know, the world isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a very mean and nasty place. I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees, and keep you there if you let it.

You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life, but it isn’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward… that’s how winning is done.

If you know what you’re worth, go and get what you’re worth, but you got to be willing to take the hits, not pointing fingers saying you aren’t where you want to be, because of him or her or anybody.

Cowards do that, and that isn’t you!!!

You’re better than that”

-ROCKY BALBOA–

******************************************************************************************************

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

-Marilyn Monroe-

**************************************************************************************************

“If you are absent during my struggle, don’t expect to be present during my success.”

-Will Smith-
