Ryan Gosling quotes: the Hollywood heartthrob’s candid quotes.
“I think that you can sort of have your own personal journey and you know, you can just kind of apply that to whatever.”

“You feel good if you’ve done hard work. You sleep better. You get stuck in your head if you have too much time to think.”
“I think we’re very complicated and we’re capable of all kinds of things.”
Just the tip: if you think it’s never gonna happen, remember, plenty of people made history later in life:
Eva Mendes quotes: on being the anti-celebrity, juggling it all – acting, business, motherhood – the “marriage killer,” and more.

“When you try hard at everything you do, even when it feels foolish to do so, you’re opening up doors and possibilities you might not be seeing in the moment.”
Just the tip: on the verge of quitting, slow your mind. Focus on staying in the fight. That’s it. Because if you dwell on the pain, the struggle, how far you’ve got left to go, the impossibility of the goal? Of course you’re gonna throw in the towel. Don’t.
Take one more step. Do one more rep. Type one more word. Make one more call. Pitch one more prospect. Then another. And another.
Don’t worry about finishing, winning, succeeding. It’s too far away. Too overwhelming.

On some zen sh*t:
1) Live simply.
2) Smile more.
3) Laugh more.
4) Spend more time with people who make you smile and laugh.
5) Sit in silence, and just think.

“Success is having to worry about every damn thing in the world, except money.”
“It’s good to believe in yourself, but there are people out there who can make or break you.”
“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”
“You have to be what you are. Whatever you are, you gotta be it.”
