"I guess I promised myself I’d continue pursuing my sport from a different perspective. My motivations used to be self serving.  I was after personal glory but you know, shit happens in life and sometimes you put goals –
Sometimes you get to that year and time, and you realize you haven’t reached your goals yet; if you make those goals the center of your life, it’s going to consume you.
It’s more fulfilling doing this with the purpose of helping my team which is better than proving myself to the world.”

There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you.”

'Put your seat belt on.'
‘Watch your step.’
‘Get some rest.’

VAN EYCK

I lost it at the end.

Okay, I had to check out the Van Eyck thing. I was a bit in denial because, come on, every single person can’t look like President Putin!

There are no words to describe how wrong I was.

Quote reblogged from WORDS N QUOTES with 140 notes

In so far as the word “knowledge” has any meaning, the world is knowable; but it is interpretable otherwise, it has no meaning behind it, but countless meanings.—”Perspectivism.”

It is our needs that interpret the world; our drives and their For and Against. Every drive is a kind of lust to rule; each one has its perspective that it would like to compel all the other drives to accept as a norm.

— Friedrich Nietzsche; trans. Walter Kaufmann , The Will to Power, (1883-1888)

PERSPECTIVE(S)

"point of view", in psychology, the choice of a context for opinions, beliefs and experiences

Perspective in theory of cognition is the choice of a context or a reference (or the result of this choice) from which to sense, categorize, measure or codify experience, cohesively forming a coherent belief, typically for comparing with another. One may further recognize a number of subtly distinctive meanings, close to those of paradigm, point of view, reality tunnel, umwelt, or weltanschauung.

Quote reblogged from Chill like a Turtle with 1,364 notes

As an athlete, you’ll never feel bad about losing, but what you will feel bad about is underperforming. That’s a real thing and it happens a lot when we don’t live up to our potential. And that keeps you up at night and can give you years and years of regret. It could be a relationship, it could be a homework assignment, or it could be an athletic competition. If you don’t go out and perform to the best of your ability, it will really bother you.

I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
