Famous quotes containing the word obstacles:

    It is very rare that you meet with obstacles in this world which the humblest man has not faculties to surmount. It is true we may come to a perpendicular precipice, but we need not jump off, nor run our heads against it. A man may jump down his own cellar stairs, or dash his brains out against his chimney, if he is mad.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Life is like walking along a crowded street—there always seem to be fewer obstacles to getting along on the opposite pavement—and yet, if one crosses over, matters are rarely mended.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    It still holds true that man is most uniquely human when he turns obstacles into opportunities.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
