Here are his ten life lessons You should need to know
Show me a hero, and I will write you a tragedy. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
In our daily life, whenever we try to build or want to do something new we complain about the fact that we face too much trouble. However, the truth about life is always different; those are the person who has done something remarkable in life; who had encountered problems and made the highest sacrifices.
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
In the middle of the crisis, you can do two things, either you die with regrets or you faced it and survived; like a legend. Even the gold comes to its existence when it gets the highest heats. Falls and failures are your real source of inspiration.
First, you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
No one can change your mind as long as you don’t want to change it. In fact, most people won’t because they’re not aware of what should happen to them if they still consume it. However, one realization of the fact that you can change yourself will make a big difference in your life. The question would be how long it will take.
Everybody’s youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
It will take just one bad decision in your youth to destroy your whole life. Your youth is the most important time of your life; instead of wasting it if we try to build our base on it, then it will help us in making a fruitful life.
Forgotten is forgiven. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
A lot of people face the heat of their past. They barely can live their life, in fact, their present and their future have been taken away by their fear and the past experiences. Bad things happen, and will happen we cannot control it. However, one thing is in our hands, and it is to forgive and forget.
You see I usually find myself among strangers because I drift here and there trying to forget the sad things that happened to me. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Is it possible to escape from the reality of our life? If you had learned that it’s not, then I will probably say to you that you are quite wrong. It is possible; in fact, the solution is always in our mind and in our travel books. Take a trip and explore the unknowns. Who knows what experience you will gather?
There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Anything if we do without the love for our work – in a short while irrespective of our needs we will give up. Love for our work continually motivates us. Especially, in the time when days go wrong or time doesn’t work.
Intelligence is measured by a person’s ability to see validity within both sides of contradicting arguments. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
If you’re running a business or you’re in a job that calls you to show some leadership qualities, then it would be for you. In a team of people, an argument will surely come – it depends on the leader to see both sides of the story and then comes to a conclusion. The leader should be open-minded to accept all the argument, and intelligent enough to process this in the right direction.
The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Those who have come with a solution to a difficult problem have had the same problem as same as us. However, in their case, they see the problem as an opportunity – to do something new that will give them a chance to solve it in their way. If you see the problem in a negative way, you will end up on a negative path.
At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are caves in which we hide. – F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
Age should not be anyone’s barrier. If you want to do something and if your mind says no to you – follow your heart. Rock the world never hold back – follow your passion. Age is just a mental state if you think you are adventurous – you’re capable of risk-taking qualities – go head and do something that would be worth remembering.
