Motivation

ALEXANDER, STEPHANIE

I was certain that if you offer a child the widest possible range of food from the earliest age in a loving environment, if you eat together as often as possible, and demonstrate your own enjoyment of flavour and texture and conviviality, that child will eat well forever, and will enjoy being with others around a table for the rest of his or her life. After all, that is the lesson of my own life.

ANTHONEY, DAINERE

Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die then life is like a broken winged bird that cannot fly. I want to be able to achieve my dreams and make a difference to other people’s lives one day.

ARNOLD, SUE

There was no magic encounter for me with a whale in the ocean; no being zapped by a whale as I snorkelled in their world. Nothing visible or capable of explanation. In fact, I’d never seen a whale. When I first witnessed their terrible death agony, I couldn’t get the picture of a whale being harpooned out of my mind. It was a hideous mind-blowing sight. That day I recognised a purpose on the journey of my life.

AT WORK, MEN – Down Under, songwriter Colin Hayes

Do you come from a land Down Under,
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You’d better run, you’d better take cover.

BIRD-WALTON, NANCY – about aviation

I think, just the exhilaration of flying. The freedom of the air. The freedom of flight. And you completely remove yourself from the world. And you can voluntarily remove yourself from all those…everything that’s near and dear to you. And you voluntarily return.

It was only when I realized how actors have the power to move people that I decided to pursue acting as a career.

BLASS, WOLF

The most enjoyable professional experience and challenge in my life has been to achieve those things many critics said couldn’t be done. I am not satisfied with second best.

BROCK, PETER

I feel that it is imperative that I give something back to the world around me in any way I can. If that means teaching people the power of their mind, the power to change the outcome, to look upon life positively rather than negatively etcetera, I think that that’s part of what I’m driven by.
