“Whatever you are doing in life, obstacles don’t matter very much. Pain or other circumstances can be there, but if you want to do a job bad enough, you’ll find a way to get it done.” – Jack Youngblood

Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today, it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it, for having been allowed to walk where I’ve walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above. – Gia Marie Carangi (1960-1986), Gia (1998 film by Angelina Jolie)


“I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a sharp, in focus picture of it in my head.” – Jack Nicklaus
