16 Toni Morrison Quotes to Make You Hold Your Head High

Toni Morrison (birth name – Chloe Ardelia Wofford) was born on February 18, 1931 and is an American novelist, editor and highly esteemed professor at Princeton University.

Her masterpiece, “Beloved”, got her a Pulitzer Prize and an American Book Award in 1988. The novel, a powerful story about slavery, was adapted into a movie starring Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover 10 years later. In 1993, Toni Morrison was also awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature and later on she was selected for the Jefferson Lecture, receiving the highest honor for her accomplishments in the field.

Everyone dreams of a life filled with achievements, prizes and being honored by the president himself (Bill Clinton gave a speech about Morrison during the award ceremony for National Arts and Humanities), but Toni’s life was not always paved with happiness. Her family was very poor, and because they couldn’t pay the rent anymore, their landlord set fire to the house they lived in. She was only two years old back then, but her parents passed on a valuable lesson to her: never fall into despair and just laugh in the face of evil.

And because you should always keep your dignity and integrity no matter how cruel the circumstances, here are 16 Toni Morrison quotes to help you hold your head high when life gets tough.

Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.

You are your best thing

You wanna fly, you got to give up the thing that weighs you down.

Make a difference about something other than yourselves.

Somebody has to take responsibility for being a leader.

There is really nothing more to say-except why. But since why is difficult to handle, one must take refuge in how.

As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think.

I get angry about things, then go on and work.

You need a whole community to raise a child. I have raised two children, alone.

I would solve a lot of literary problems just thinking about a character in the subway, where you can’t do anything anyway.

If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

Love is or it ain’t. Thin love ain’t love at all.

At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough. You don’t need to photograph, paint,

28 Inspiring Bill Gates Quotes on How to Succeed in Life

Bill Gates (William Henry Gates III) was born October 28, 1955. The American business man co-founded the Microsoft Corporation alongside former classmate Paul Allen. Even though many of you might already know a lot about Bill Gates and his contribution to technology, in the next few lines I will try to highlight the philanthropist rather than the magnate.

bill-gates-quotes

Ever wondered where all that drive to be #1 comes from? Well, Gates’ parents always encouraged competition by means of rewards and penalties and taught him about sharing success. Gates was so absorbed by operating systems that he got banned from school for being caught exploiting bugs, then he decided to drop out of Harvard to start his own business. He thought that if this would prove to be a bad idea, he could always go back to school. He obviously nailed it!

One of the world’s top philanthropists, Bill Gates is as generous and giving as he is wealthy and successful. Gates is investing a big part of his fortune in making the world a better place for the poor. He saved over 5 million lives by bringing vaccines and improving children healthcare; throughout his life, he donated half of his current worth; he invested in a foundation that supports many health, social and education developments, and the list goes on.

Success didn’t make Gates selfish and arrogant, but wise, so here are 28 Bill Gates quotes to help you succeed and never forget being kind to others.

Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world…if you do so, you are insulting yourself.

I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.

bill-gates-quote-success

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.

If you are born poor it’s not your mistake, but if you die poor it’s your mistake.

Life is not fair get, used to it!

We make the future sustainable when we invest in the poor, not when we insist on their suffering.

It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.

We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.

Treatment without prevention is simply unsustainable.

Discrimination has a lot of layers that make it tough for minorities to get a leg up.
