Ability quotes page 4

You can ask a woman how her day is going, or say the most perceptive or witty thing to her
in the first five minutes, but her first
impression is largely going to be based on how you
present yourself (looks/lifestyle), your level of anxiety, and your ability to communicate
clearly.
Mark Manson, Models - Attract Women Through Honesty

Ability will never catch up with the demand for it.
Confucius

Communication is the ability to affect other people with words.
Jim Rohn

Man only uses a small percentage of his mental ability. Most people have never learned to
think creatively. They merely react to stimuli. Successful people are not people without
problems. They are people who have learned to solve their problems by thinking. Thinking
bridges the gap between our present point and our goals. 92% of our worries are useless. Of
the remaining 8%, half pertain to problems we can't solve and half to those we can solve if
we'll learn how.
Earl Nightingale

Ability to swim is preservation of life.
African proverb

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the
sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Happiness can be defined, in part at least, as the fruit of the desire and ability to sacrifice
what we want now for what we want eventually.
Stephen R. Covey

I don't think you ever stop giving. I really don't. I think it's an on-going process. And it's not
just about being able to write a check. It's being able to touch somebody's life.
Oprah Winfrey

Vodka is for Russians what therapy is for Americans: habit-forming and it destroys your ability
to live a normal life.
Yakov Smirnoff

Options - the ability to choose - is real power.
Tim Ferriss

Even the opinions you have about yourself are not necessarily true; therefore, you don't
need to take whatever you hear in your own mind personally. The mind has the ability to talk
to itself, but it also has the ability to hear information that is available from other realms.
Don Miguel Ruiz

It's the ability to believe in the unpredictability of the game at the micro level and
simultaneously believe in the predictability of the game at the macro level that makes the
casino and the professional gambler effective and successful at what they do.
Mark Douglas

Your ability to generate power is directly proportional to your ability to relax.
David Allen

The biggest threat to our privacy is the government. We must drastically limit the ability of
government to collect and store data regarding citizens' personal matters.
Ron Paul

The great secret possessed by the great men of all ages was their ability to contact and
release the powers of their subconscious mind. You can do the same.
Joseph Murphy

Humankind's survival depends on our ability to stop rushing. We have more than 50,000
nuclear bombs, and yet we cannot stop making more. "Stopping" is not only to stop the
negative, but to allow positive healing to take place.
Thich Nhat Hanh

There's nothing wrong with getting a steady paycheck, unless it interferes with your ability to
earn what you're worth. There's the rub. It usually does.
T. Harv Eker

Ability in itself is nothing when denied opportunity.
Chinese proverb

I have to say, I think that we are in some kind of final examination as to whether human
beings now, with this capability to acquire information and to communicate, whether we're
really qualified to take on the responsibility we're designed to be entrusted with.
Richard Buckminster Fuller

Man achieves in life only by commanding the capabilities nature has given him, or by creating
them within himself by education and by knowing how to profit by the difficulties
encountered.
Napoleon Bonaparte

The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the
same time and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that
things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
