nothing average ever stood as a monument to progress.

Nothing average ever stood as a monument to progress. When progress is looking for a partner it doesn't turn to those who believe they are only average. It turns instead to those who are forever searching and striving to become the best they possibly can. If we seek the average level we cannot hope to achieve a high level of success.

Awesome quote. It does pay off to seek with a purpose and to give your best at every aspect of life.

I celebrate my 22nd birthday this saturday and this has been the biggest year of my life thus far.. all the searching and questioning. Really good quote!

The closer one gets to the "top," the more one finds there is no "top."

Everything is relative. Success has made failures of many men.

"Settle. You said settle. Settle for anything and you're doomed. My biggest fear in life is being mediocre. We can't be willing to settle for anything, especially for less than we deserve. We watch other people live out their dreams, instead of investing in dreams of our own. We should strive for greatness. Life is too short. We must make it extraordinary. Never settle for anything less than extraordinary, or else life will suck. It might suck anyway, but its better to suck with integrity, right?"

-Franky from the movie "Dream for an Insomniac"

P.S.-If you like alot of really famous quotes, you should watch this movie!!!!!

That Vickery is a very wise man! It also goes to show that one's internal nagging drive/ sense of unrest may be a positive thing!
