Favorite Definition Of Success Quotes

1. "One woman's definition of success may not be another's. Is success, as the world defines it, an accomplishment in a society this sick?"
Author: Donna Lynn Hope
2. "People treat having a kid as somehow retiring from success. Quitting. Have you seen a baby? They're pretty cute. Loving them is pretty easy. Smiling babies should actually be categorized by the pharmaceutical industry as a powerful antidepressant. Being happy is really the definition of success, isn't it?"
Author: Jim Gaffigan
3. "I felt suddenly that 'this sort of thing' would kill me. The definition of the cause was vague, but the thought itself was no mere morbid artificiality of sentiment but a genuine conviction. 'That sort of thing' was what I would have to die from. It wouldn't be from the innumerable doubts. Any sort of certitude would be also deadly. It wouldn't be from a stab—a kiss would kill me as surely. It would not be from a frown or from any particular word or any particular act—but from having to bear them all, together and in succession—from having to live with 'that sort of thing.' About the time I finished with my neck-tie I had done with life too."
Author: Joseph Conrad
4. "An admirable line of Pablo Neruda's, "My creatures are born of a long denial," seems to me the best definition of writing as a kind of exorcism, casting off invading creatures by projecting them into universal existence, keeping them on the other side of the bridge… It may be exaggerating to say that all completely successful short stories, especially fantastic stories, are products of neurosis, nightmares or hallucination neutralized through objectification and translated to a medium outside the neurotic terrain. This polarization can be found in any memorable short story, as if the author, wanting to rid himself of his creature as soon and as absolutely as possible, exorcises it the only way he can: by writing it."
Author: Julio Cortázar
5. "It was as if he'd suddenly become intimately aware of the fragility of life and how precious time really was. As a result, he made a conscious effort to simplify his life, with the goal of eliminating unnecessary stress. No longer interested in society's definition of success, he began purging his life of material things. Life, he decided, was for living, not for having, and he wanted to experience every moment that he could. At the deepest level, he'd come to understand that life could end at any moment, and it was better to be be happy than busy."
Author: Micah Sparks
6. "Isn't that exactly the definition of biography? An artificial logic imposed on an 'incoherent succession of images'?"
Author: Milan Kundera
7. "That's the definition of 'success' for the modern Democrat Party. As many people dependent on government as possible is the objective."
Author: Rush Limbaugh
8. "When you lower the definition of success to such a level that any person can reach it, you don't teach people to have big dreams; Instead, you inspirit mediocrity and nurture people's inadequacies."
Author: Shannon L. Alder
9. "If you carefully consider what you wanted to be said of you in the funeral experience, you will find your definition of success."
Author: Stephen R. Covey
