12 Harriet Tubman Quotes to Help You Find the Leader Within

Harriet Tubman was a leading abolitionist who went on to become the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad — a network of secret routes and safe houses destined to help those enslaved during the 19th century. The routes led to free states but later on, as the Fugitive Slave Law was adopted, slaves could be captured and returned to their masters. So Harriet Tubman changed the route to Canada, which prohibited slavery categorically, leading hundreds of slaves to freedom, using this route. Her efforts, ingenuity, and determination later earned her the “Moses” moniker, among others. Born in a family of slaves, she was beaten, sold and constantly ill due to poor conditions and endless struggles; yet Tubman knew that she was destined for something bigger, which gave her the determination to escape — and take others with her. By being a great leader and helping so many, she achieved greatness and restored faith among enslaved people. During the Civil War, Tubman also worked as a spy, working alongside the Union Army. Harriet became a highly respected figure in history and an American icon. Here are 12 Harriet Tubman quotes to help you find the leader within. Don’t ever stop. […]

22 Frederick Douglass Quotes to Make You Fight to Stop Ignorance From Prevailing

Frederick Douglass is widely known as one of the most vocal defenders of human rights in the anti-slavery movement. Douglass’ ideological opposition to slavery began to take shape after he was taught to read and write. Education was banned for slaves, but in spite of this, his slaveholder Sophia Auld decided to teach him the alphabet when he was around the age of 12. Not long after, her husband forbade her from teaching, but that didn’t stop Douglass who continued to seek learning opportunities wherever they may arise. Frederick Douglass went on to write several autobiographies — the most famous of which being Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass — openly describing his own experiences as a slave. Later on, he went on to become the first African-American citizen to hold a high U.S. government rank. Even after the Civil War was over, Douglass continued his campaign against slavery and has strengthened the idea according to which slaves weren’t able to function as independent American citizens because they were denied the access to education, not because they lacked the intellectual capacity. And he was the living proof of these arguments. Opposing such a deeply rooted system, rising alone against […]

21 Bob Dylan Quotes to Help You Mold Your Own Way of Thinking

Bob Dylan is one of the most influential and complex artists of our times. He’s a singer, songwriter, musician, author and painter. His work dates back more than five decades and is mostly known for exploring social and political issues. Dylan became the “voice of a generation” and sold over 100 million records, becoming one of the best-selling artists of all time. His humble beginnings date back to performing folk and country songs at local cafés while he was still a student. That’s when he took the name ‘Bob Dillon’, which was inspired by the main character from a very popular Western TV series back then – Gunsmoke. Although many thought the pseudonym was inspired by the poet Dylan Thomas, Bob later said that it had nothing to do with it and that he actually dislikes the author. In the early 2000s, Dylan decided to take a break from music to have enough time to write down his life story, publishing the first volume of Chronicles in 2004. Bob Dylan is the winner of Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy awards and also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012. Later, in 2016, he was the first artist primarily seen as […]

25 Nikola Tesla Quotes to Become the Inventor of Your Dreams

One of the greatest inventors of all time, Nikola Tesla, “The genius who lit the world”, is well known for the Tesla coil (which laid the foundation for wireless technologies), the development of the alternating-current electrical system, while also being credited with the discovery of the rotating magnetic field. Tesla is also the man behind many other great inventions, but because he forgot to write down many of his ideas, others used them to their own advantage to become rich and famous. Tesla never really cared about money; what he wanted most was to provide free electricity to the world. However, such a project needed investors and, despite having found them, they eventually started to doubt his system. This led to bankruptcy and the tower he had built had to be sold in order to cover his debt. Nikola Tesla was never the marrying type, as he thought that being in a relationship would interfere with his work. But since most of us need another soul to keep us company and understand us, Tesla had a very special relationship with his pigeons, going as far as Tesla showed us that everything is possible when you try hard enough, his legacy […]

18 Malcolm Gladwell Quotes to Make You Rethink the Path to Success

Malcolm Gladwell (born September 3, 1963) is an English-born Canadian journalist, author, and speaker. Gladwell was not the brightest student, his grades were not high enough for him to graduate school, so he decided to pursue a career in advertising instead. He has been rejected from many agencies, but was finally accepted as a journalist at The American Spectator. In his work, Gladwell seeks to combine interesting stories with interesting research. He is the author of 5 memorable books, some of them — like Blink or Outliers — being often quoted among the best non-fiction books on the shelf. I personally haven’t had the chance to read any of them, but I do have a personal favorite article – “The Talent Myth” – a research paper that explores incorrectly used managerial and administrative techniques. Malcom Gladwell says that inexperienced employees are promoted too soon, while the experienced ones don’t get the chance to rise. He also thinks that narcissists are more likely to climb the ladder, and they turn out to be the worst leaders. No need to explain why. Here are 18 Malcolm Gladwell quotes to help you get rid of the fear of making a fool of yourself and rethink […]

15 Gordon Ramsay Quotes to Help You Perform at Your Best

Yes, he’s that jerk that yells at his cooks. But for those who may not know him very well…there’s much more to Gordon Ramsay than meets the eye. Born in Scotland in 1966, Ramsay knows struggle and setbacks as well as anyone else. Ramsay has a great passion for soccer (or football if you’re literally anywhere else in the world other than the U.S…), but when he was younger an injury caused him to prematurely put an end to his dream of becoming a professional ballplayer, forcing him to change course. Years later, after attending college for hotel management, he went on to train with some of the world’s greatest chefs, working on his cooking craft for several years before venturing on on his own and opening his first restaurant. Since then, he’s gone on to become a world-renowned chef and T.V. personality, earning multiple Michelin stars– the highest honor for a cook– and placing himself among the world’s most elite chefs in history. Ramsay worked hard to get to where he is and, while he can be a hardass, it’s because he knows what it takes to win. Not to mention, he’s also incredibly humble and appreciative when he […]
