Entertainment

 Life is an improvisation. You have no idea what's going to happen next and you are mostly just making things up as you go along.

Business

 Don’t let your fears overwhelm your desire. Let the barriers you face—and there will be barriers—be external, not internal. Fortune does favor the bold, and I promise that you will never know what you’re capable of unless you try.
- Sheryl Sandberg, CFO Facebook

Media

 I cannot stress enough that the answer to a lot of your life's questions is often in someone else's face. Try putting your iPhones down every once in a while and look at people's faces.
- Ira Glass, NPR's This American Life

Arts

 And now go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art.

Sports

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Science

You know what makes your heart swift, you know what makes your breath catch your throat, you know what makes your chest tight with anticipation. Go get that!.

Technology

 Vain, inertia, pride or fear should never be the reason why you close your mind to opportunity.

Politics

 In the depths of darkness you will find that you have an inextinguishable light in your heart. In the most cold winter you will discover that within you there in an invincible spring.
