Top Quotes of Randy Pausch:

  • “The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”

  • Randy Pausch American professor “We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.”

  • “The key question to keep asking is, Are you spending your time on the right things? Because time is all you have”.

  • “No matter how bad things are, you can always make things worse.”

  • “It's not about how to achieve your dreams, it's about how to lead your life, ... If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, the dreams will come to you.”

  • Randy Pausch American professor “Look, I'm going to find a way to be happy, and I'd really love to be happy with you, but if I can't be happy with you, then I'll find a way to be happy without you.”

  • Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other.”

Randy Pausch

  • “Another way to be prepared is to think negatively. Yes, I'm a great optimist. but, when trying to make a decision, I often think of the worst case scenario. I call it 'the eaten by wolves factor.' If I do something, what's the most terrible thing that could happen? Would I be eaten by wolves? One thing that makes it possible to be an optimist, is if you have a contingency plan for when all hell breaks loose. There are a lot of things I don't worry about, because I have a plan in place if they do.”

  • “Believe nothing a man tells you and everything he shows you".... (Taken from a farewell video from a dying father to his infant daughter on dating)”

  • “You may not want to hear it, but your critics are often the ones telling you they still love you and care about you, and want to make you better.”
