Proactive quotes & positive thinking quotes

First, some levity:

One quote is by Henry David Thoreau:
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.”

The other one is something a friend of mine made up:
“Be the person your dog thinks you are.”

Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

-- Harold Thurman Whitman

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones.

-- John Cage

Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

--Bertrand Russell

The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.

-- Plutarch

The windshield is bigger than the rearview mirror.

-- Tom Daschle

The total alteration of near-universal scarcity and poverty has not been squarely faced. As a result, we are guided, in part, by ideas that are relevant to another world. ... We do many things that are unnecessary, some that are unwise, and a few that are insane.

-- John Kenneth Galbraith, The Affluent Society, 1958

Being proactive is not a mysterious quality that we have, or don’t have. It is a way of dealing with things, that we can develop and strengthen.
