Growth and comfort do not coexist.

—Indra Nooyi

Do one thing every day that scares you.
—Eleanor Roosevelt

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
—JK Rowling

We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes—understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.
—Arianna Huffington

Do what you love and success will follow. Passion is the fuel behind a successful career.
—Meg Whitman

Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it.
—Maya Angelou

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this’, and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.
 —Marissa Mayer

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.
—Coco Chanel

Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.
—Marie Curi

You can have it all. Just not all at once.
