We use the word “impossible” very often. We do not give much thought to it before using it. Whenever we use it we limit ourselves and our potentials. Here are some of good quotes to think about and remember….



It is not a lucky word, this name 'impossible'; no good comes of those who have it so often in their mouths."

- Thomas Carlyle

Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools."

- Napoleon Bonaparte


"Scientists have proven that it's impossible to long-jump 30 feet, but I don't listen to that kind of talk. Thoughts like that have a way of sinking into your feet."

We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

- William Shakespeare


Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
Listen to the DON'TS,
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS,
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me—
Anything can happen, child
ANYTHING can be.

- Shel Silverstein

for there is no man who does not have his hour
and there is no thing that does not have its place."
