1. Those Questions




    Many things are going on in this world, in and around your campus. You`ll hear about them, catch them on Facebook, or perhaps see a sign annoyingly pushed into your face throughout Sproul Plaza on your way to class. However, in these mediums, there is an important, crucial detail that is often, unfortunately overlooked. 

    Each project, each action, each idea has a story behind it. They all started somewhere, somewhere small— personal, humble, and modest. They all started for a reason. A reason that came from the heart.

    Those elusive, beautiful questions: Who? What? Where? and Why? 

    Who are you really? What is it that you really want? Where do you desire to go? Why do you do…what you do?

  2. Muhammad Ali: It is befitting that I leave the game just like I came in, beating a big bad monster who knocks out everybody and no one can whup him. So when little Cassius Clay from Louisville, Kentucky, came up to stop Sonny Liston. The man who annihilated Floyd Patterson twice. HE WAS GONNA KILL ME! But he hit harder than George. His reach is longer than George’s. He’s a better boxer than George. And I’m better now than I was when you saw that 22-years old undeveloped kid running from Sonny Liston. I’m experienced now, professional. Jaws been broke, been knocked down a couple of times, I’m bad! Been chopping trees. I done something new for this fight. I done wrestled with an alligator. That’s right. I have wrestled with an alligator. I done tussled with a whale. I done handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail. That’s bad! Only last week I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalised a brick! I’m so mean I make medicine sick!

  5. Malcolm X Oxford Speech

    "If you take up arms, you’ll end it, but if you sit around and wait for the one who’s in power to make up his mind that he should end it, you’ll be waiting a long time. And in my opinion, the young generation of whites, blacks, browns, whatever else there is, you’re living at a time of extremism, a time of revolution, a time when there’s got to be a change. People in power have misused it, and now there has to be a change and a better world has to be built, and the only way it’s going to be built—is with extreme methods. And I, for one, will join in with anyone—I don’t care what color you are—as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth.”

    -“People who have no hold over their process of thinking are likely to be ruined by liberty of thought. If thought is immature, liberty of thought becomes a method of converting men into animals.”

    -Muhammad Iqbal


  7. "Innovation is almost insane by definition: most people view any truly innovative idea as stupid, because if it was a good idea, somebody would have already done it."

  8. "If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late."

  9. "The easiest way to get 1 million people paying is to get 1 billion people using"

  10. "I have long believed in the power of a word or a single phrase to effectively communicate a business imperative—and to inspire people. The best words are never big or complicated, but are packed with emotion and meaning, leaving no question of what I expect of myself and others."
    — Howard Schultz (via entrepreneurwisdom)

  11. What is Impossible?

    Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. - Muhammad Ali
