Here is a collection of quotes from Jim Carry:
Originality is really important
I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I go, ‘Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.
If you aren’t in the moment, you are either looking forward to uncertainty, or back to pain and regret.
“Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes
I really believe in the philosophy that you create your own universe. I’m just trying to create a good one for myself
I just want to be myself.
I tend to stay up late, not because I’m partying but because it’s the only time of the day when I’m alone and don’t have to be performing
Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting
Life doesn’t happen to you. It happens for you
I have no limits. I cannot be contained because I am the container
Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they’re eating sandwiches.
One thing I hope I’ll never be is drunk with my own power. And anybody who says I am will never work in this town again
I think everyone should get rich and famous, and do everything that they ever dreamed of, so that they can see that it’s not the answer
It is better to risk starving to death then surrender. If you give up on your dreams, what’s left
Life opens opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them
I got a lot of support from my parents. That’s the one thing I always appreciated. They didn’t tell me I was being stupid; they told me I was being funny
Maybe other people will try to limit me but I don’t limit myself.
I feel like I want to take care of everyone and I also feel this terrible guilt if I am unable to. And I have felt this way ever since all this success started
You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love
The peace that we’re after lies somewhere beyond personality, beyond the perception of others, beyond invention and disguise, even beyond effort itself
I wished people could realize all of their dreams of wealth and fame, so they could see that it’s not where you’ll find your sense of completion
This is the voice of your ego. If you listen to it, there will always be someone who seems to be doing better than you
So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossible out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it
How will you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide? That’s all you have to figure out
Fear is going to be a player in your life, but you get to decide how much.
You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about your pathway to the future, but all there will ever be is what’s happening here, and the decisions we make in this moment, which are based in either love or fear
Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart
It’s just about letting the universe know what you want and working towards it, while letting go of how it might come to pass
Don’t let anything stand in the way of the light that shines through you. Risk being seen in all your glory
