Christopher Michael Pratt

Chris Pratt quotes: about the best antidepressant, knowing your sh*t stinks, the one relationship more important than the one you have with your kids, what he’d do if he could no longer act, and more.

“Figure out whether or not you believe in yourself, and if you don’t, find a way to.  Because even more than you want it, you must believe it.  And learn about yourself.  The rhythm of one’s spirit is just as important as what you look like or what you sound like.  Who are you?  What’s your voice?  What are you dying to contribute?”

“It doesn’t matter what it is, earn it.  It feels good.  Five bucks earned is better than 10 bucks given to you, every time.  If you feel like crap, look at your life, what you have that you didn’t earn.  Do something to earn it.  A good deed, reach out to someone in pain, be of service.  It feels good and it’s good for your soul.”

Dennis J Chip

Chip Wilson quotes: Lord Lulu’s loveliest quotes.

“I had no idea, but I realized that probably 30 to 40% of my brainpower was taken up with the questions that I couldn’t answer – because I had no direction.  When I got clear on exactly where I wanted to go, and set the goals to get there, my mind calmed down.”

“The definition of integrity is doing what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it.  It’s recognizing that what you say and how you say it determines your effectiveness in life and also determines the type of people you end up surrounding yourself with – because people surround themselves with like people.”

Josh Brolin quotes: on drinking wine from Dixie Cups, living life metaphorically sh*t-faced, buying beautiful homes all over Cali, and more.

“I don’t care who you are, the pressure is on to go to the next task immediately.”

“Any kid that feels like they don’t have any kind of future, whether they’re on a street corner in Harlem or in a little town in Kansas where nothing happens, it’s all out there for them.  They can do whatever they dream or wish or see on television, or read about in the papers.”

“You’ve got to have heart and you’ve got to have drive.  And when you get knocked down you’ve got to pick yourself up – put your hands up on the ropes and pull yourself to your feet.  Because, if you can’t take a hit, you’re not going to last long, that’s for sure.”

“You gotta work hard, don’t expect this thing to happen overnight, and you gotta bust your ass to make it happen.”
