You eat what you kill.

You either get better or you get worse – you never stay the same. (Lou Holtz)

You either give up or get up.

You either lead by example, or you don’t lead at all.

You either work every day at getting better at what you do or you get worse – nothing today stays the same for long.

You feel like home.

You forgot to work for nothing.

You gave yourself an out.

You get a bad king every once in a while.

You get eaten up from the bottom. (Innovator’s Dilemma)

You get into the movie business because you like movies – not because you like money.

You get killed in the middle in the movie business.

You get the face you deserve.

You get what you get when you go for it.

You get what you give.

You Get What You Work for, Not What You Wish for

You get your learnin' from your burnin'.

You go from eating poorly to losing your appetite.

You go from pushing a stone up the hill to racing down the other slide hanging on for dear life.

You gotta be part gangster.

You gotta wanna.

You have decided that the only way to become somebody in this country is first to
become no one at all.

You have everything you need to build something far bigger than yourself. (Seth Godin)

You have no idea the depths of shit you have just gotten yourself into.

You have this in common with the rest of humanity.

You have to appear to be generous, but you have to be inherently a cheap fuck to make it work. (the high-end restaurant business)

You have to be in it for the fun or you might as well be selling shoes.

You have to be obsessive – but this can create blind spots and limit peripheral vision.

You have to be very careful about acquiring objects because they come to possess

You have to believe in happiness or happiness never comes.

You have to believe in something greater than yourself.

You have to design and build your strategy into your product.

You have to go out there, but you don’t have to come back. (Firemen)

You have to have a short memory. (in-game amnesia – pete sampras)

You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince.

You have to listen to the little man inside you.

You have to play for a long time to be able to play like yourself.

You have to take the shit with the sugar, I guess.

You have to think anyway, why not think big?

You have to wield the truth with care.

You have to write faster than they can steal.

You haven’t learned to live until you’ve learned to give.

You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing.  (Rene Descartes)

You know every day that you're alive.

You know, that hooker really likes me.

You know to the dollar

You live life looking forward, you understand life looking backward.

You live the results of old plans.

You look like a movie. You sound like a song. My God, this reminds me of when we were young

You make the rest of your kind look vaguely human.

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try.

You may not be able to control the wind, but you can always adjust your sails.

You may not win them over but, if you hang around long enough, you’ll wear them out.

You may think that cleverness, power or money will work on your behalf, but eventually you will end up feeling the way you really feel.

You meet twice.

You meet your must.
You rarely do what you “should”.
You always do what you “must”.
Make success a fucking “must”.

You might as well put your balls in her teeth.

You move toward and become the image of yourself which you hold uppermost in
your mind.

You must either conquer and rule or lose and serve, suffer or triumph, and be the
anvil or the hammer.

You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range

You must have one grand passion.

You must know where you stop and the world begins.

You must learn from the mistakes of others.  You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.

You must live on the offensive.

You must pay for everything in this world one way or another.

You need a basis of acceptance to create the environment where someone can change if they wish.

You need at least one person in your life you can count on. Someone you can call when there’s no one else to talk to.

You need love to light the shadows on your face.
You need new vistas.
You need to believe in something greater than yourself.

You need to understand something before you can change it.  But if you know it too well, you might not see how to transform it.

You never conquer a mountain.  Mountains can't be conquered.  You conquer yourself-your hopes and your fears.

You never forget your first unreliable narrator.

You never get in trouble for what you don’t say.

You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.

You never know how tough you are until someone knocks you down and you decide whether you want to get yourself up or not.

You never know when you’re making a memory.

You never know who's going to bring you your future.

You never know who’s swimming naked until the tide goes out.

You never learn anything by talking.

You never learn things the way you want to.

You never really know where you are going until you get there.

You only get one good dog in a life.

You only learn who has been swimming naked when the tide goes out.

You only live once, but, if you do it right, once is enough. (Mae West)

You only sell your equity once.

You ought to have more dreams than memories.

You ought to take the bull between the teeth.

You owe as much to the bitter opposition … as to the kindly aid.
You owe the world not the other way around.

You paint for yourself first, then for your friends, and then for the people you would
like to know.

You play basketball against yourself; your opponent is your potential.

You play like you practice.

You punch up, not down.

You realize when you work for Disney why the mouse has only four fingers: he can’t pick up a check.

You remind me of an ant crawling up the hind leg of an elephant with rape on his

You say I’m a bitch like it’s a bad thing.

You see a lot by looking.

You see, the wonderful thing about Balanchine is you never notice the exits:  the patterns continue.

You shall have joy, or you shall have power, said God; you shall not have both.

You should never agree to surrender your dreams.

You should never say “no” to a gift from a child.

You should never stand between your enemy and a firing squad.

You spend your whole life learning and then you die.

You started but you didn’t up.

You take money from the people who offer it to you.

You think you understand the situation, but what you don't understand is that
the situation just changed.

You think your pains and your heartbreaks are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.

You train your dog, you educate your people.

You try to give them the advantages you never had and what they want is the life you had.

You understand the finiteness of life and you understand that every choice entails making some other choice.

You waited for its return with impatience and mounting unease.

You want it bad, you get it bad.

You will always be surrounded by comfort.  But you won’t always be comfortable.

You will always find those who think they know your duty better than you know it.

You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant

You will go away with old, good friends.  Don't forget when you leave why you came.

You will go most safely by the middle way.
You will have it when you need it.  It's your character.

You will never fail if you never give up.

You will never stub your toe standing still.  The faster you go, the more chance
there is of stubbing your toe, but the more chance you have of getting somewhere.

You will never understand bureaucracies until you understand that for bureaucrats procedure is everything and outcomes are nothing.

You won’t win at the negotiating table what you can’t win on the battlefield.

You would have thought that they would have shoplifted more than that. (Atari sales)

You would never imagine a future without them.

You wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten you.

You wouldn't know a good story if it was tattooed on the end of your prick.

You write a hit play the same way you write a flop.

You write what you see.

You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

You’ll be older, too.  And, if you say the word, I could stay with you.

You’ll never be a big shot among people who remember you when.

You’ll never get anything straighter than from a customer.

You'll never have all the information you need to make a decision-if you did, it would be a foregone conclusion, not a decision.

You'll never really know what happiness is unless you've got something to compare it to.

You'll see it when you believe it.

Young people today are only interested in being famous.  But it's not about being famous. It's about being good.

“Young people wore out early – they were hard and languid.  The city was bloated, glutted, stupid with cakes and circuses, and a new expression, ‘O yeah?’ summed up all the enthusiasms.”

Your actions are pointless if no one notices.

Your attitude determines your altitude.

Your best teacher is your last mistake.

Your data shouldn’t show up in your creative.

Your days are short here; this is the last of your springs.  And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of heaven.

Your dream isn’t big enough if it doesn’t scare you.

Your ears will never get you in trouble.

Your faith needs to be stronger than your fear.

Your family is a much more important extension of yourself than any work you do.

Your first mistake is your cheapest.

Your guests will always show up. The only one who won’t show up when you’re desperate are your staff.

Your job as a leader is to be right at the end of the meeting, not at the beginning.

Your lies often reveal who you wish you were.

Your margin is my opportunity.

Your mind is for having ideas, not holding ideas.

Your oldest fears are the worst ones.

Your silence will not protect you.

Your sole purpose in life may be to serve as a warning to others.

Your values are a competitive advantage.

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.  Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, wakes.

You’re a clever one.  Only comparatively.

You're a cookie full of arsenic.

You’re as sick as your secrets.

You're either the very best at what you do or you don't do it for very long.

You've got to be careful if you don't know where you're going because you might not get there.

You've got to be ready to bite the ass off a bear every morning.
