Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.

Marie Curie

Marie Curie is best known for her scientific breakthroughs in radiation and radioactivity, which won her two Nobel Prizes. Even after her husband and research partner Pierre Curie died, Marie carried on their work, introducing the first X-ray machines to the frontlines of World War I. She spoke these brave words upon discovering that her long-term exposure to radiation during her research had given her leukemia. Her rational outlook applies not just to science and mortality, but also to life: If we approach the unknown without fear, we’re more likely to gain understanding we didn’t have before.

The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.


Confucius was a Chinese philosopher who lived more than 2,500 years ago. Yet despite the wide gap of time between his life and ours, he is still famous today for his wise teachings and philosophy. While Confucius’ political and cultural influence is hard to overstate, his beginnings were meager. This only further proves the point of the above quote, which reminds us that great movements often start with small steps.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.

John Maxwell

Author, speaker, and pastor John Maxwell believed in this message so thoroughly, he made it the title of his 2013 book about how to succeed. The quote is a play on the more common phrase, “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,” which Maxwell points out stops short of the crucial lesson. In order to keep moving forward and achieve our greatest dreams, we must also learn from those losses. If we apply that knowledge and wisdom the next time around, we’ll be that much closer to reaching our goals.

The time is always ripe to do right.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. wrote this line in his 1963 “Letter From Birmingham Jail,” a message he addressed to clergymen who were critical of his nonviolent protests. This particular quote was King's response to calls for the racial justice movement to slow down and be patient. King described the liberation of Black Americans as woven into the overarching American goal of freedom. He urged his fellow clergymen and other bystanders to join this timely and urgent cause, because there is no wrong time to fight for justice.
