Sometimes legends find themselves remembered more for what they have not done than for their accomplishments. But those resume gaps can also help drive them to achieve even greater things in new arenas. -Don Yaeger

I don't have time to celebrate accomplishments. When good things happen, it's great, and obviously I get excited inside. But soon I gotta do something else; I gotta keep doing more stuff. The whole world will never be familiar, so I'm constantly going to be on a quest to get familiar. -Clinton Sparks

A series of small but real accomplishments gives people the energy and confidence to continue. For instance, a person who wants to write a novel might resolve to write one sentence each day. Or a person who wants to start running might resolve to run for one minute. -Gretchen Rubin

The biggest accomplishment, in racial terms, for Barack Obama was being elected. He had to overcome his blackness to be elected. He climbed the Mt. Everest of American politics, becoming an historic first. -Randall Kennedy

I find hunger more interesting than accomplishment. -Simon Van Booy

When your dreams include service to others – accomplishing something that contributes to others – it also accelerates the accomplishment of that goal. People want to be part of something that contributes and makes a difference. -Jack Canfield

The accomplishments in college and even in the pros are more in my mind because you constantly see Duke on TV during basketball season. You constantly see the NBA. -Grant Hill

Even the most brilliant accomplishments on the Internet are essentially cold. Google has changed the world, but you don't snuggle up to it. YouTube is a giant carnival, filled with freaks and mountebanks, a place to gawk and laugh and get bored. Certainly not a place to feel anything. -Marshall Herskovitz

I consider it one of the greatest accomplishments of my life that I have learned to sing. -Heber J. Grant

We should have a time to reflect on the accomplishments of the military, of their sacrifices, of their failures. -Richard Engel

I didn't want people to think of me as someone who wasn't impressed with a silver medal, because obviously that's a huge accomplishment, and I was so happy. It was more about me just being not impressed with falling at the Olympics in my last event. -McKayla Maroney

I love my husband. I believe in him, and I am proud of his accomplishments. -Pat Nixon

I am a big one for subtlety and empathy. My dad was softly spoken and didn't carry his honours and accomplishments for everyone to see. -Kyle MacLachlan

Conquering America for a U.K. artist is incredible because that's what everybody wants and dreams about. The accomplishment is dominating a market which you aren't familiar with. -Rita Ora

The accomplishment of open source is that it is the back end of the web, the invisible part, the part that you don't see as a user. -Mitch Kapor

The most satisfying accomplishment for me was winning the British Open in 1996. But the most rewarding times were the times on the mini tours. -Tom Lehman

Nobody's reported my victories, my accomplishments, my true personality – the way I treat all people. -Mark Fuhrman

I've been an executive and a progressive executive with a record of accomplishments. -Martin O'Malley

By affirming your own gifts and accomplishments, you build your confidence and increase your ability to build a brighter future. -Debbie Ford

Like Hillary Clinton, I, too, have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe. But unlike Mrs. Clinton, I know that flying is an activity, not an accomplishment. -Carly Fiorina

Editorial cartoons should be smart and substantive, provocative and informative. They should stir passions and deep emotions. Editorial cartoons should be the catalyst for thought, and frankly speaking, if you can make politicians think, that is an accomplishment itself. -Michael Ramirez

The pact creating a North American free-trade zone was President Bill Clinton's signature accomplishment; but NAFTA is also the bugaboo of union leaders, grassroots activists and Midwesterners who blame free trade for the factory closings they see in their hometowns. -Nina Easton

You aren't your work, your accomplishments, your possessions, your home, your family… your anything. You're a creation of your Source, dressed in a physical human body intended to experience and enjoy life on Earth. -Wayne Dyer

You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness. -Zig Ziglar

Life is filled with tragedy, with long patches of struggle and with, I think, beautiful bursts of joy and accomplishment. Blessed with those moments, you just try to relax as much as possible and focus on the little things, like the joy of changing your baby's diaper. -David Dastmalchian

Set out with some definite purpose in life and accomplish that purpose. There is little that the human mind can conceive that is not possible of accomplishment. The thing to do is to make up your mind what you are going to drive for, and let nothing stand in the way of its ultimate accomplishment. -Charles M. Schwab

At the age of thirty-seven, I was fat, and since the age of thirty-eight, I have never been fat again. That's the whole idea of effective weight loss – it's permanent because it's part of your lifestyle and the way you think about yourself, with pride and a sense of accomplishment. The goal you achieve is your own – you own it. -Jean Nidetch

Ever since 'Star Wars,' there was a rash of how a movie was made. I remember that as a kid. I never really understood how movies were made until that movie, because it was such a technical accomplishment. Since then, you've seen more and more and more, for all different kinds of films, about what goes into the process. -Patrick Lussier

I always felt that, through it all, there was a really strong, forward, positive, constructive accomplishment by the American people during that period, if you consider that during the period from 1954 to 1965, this country broke through the caste system. -John Doar

Science is far from the center of the world for most people: even for many with highly sophisticated tastes, interests, and accomplishments. -Bruce Beutler

I have learned that being a politician is not an easy job. My father was trying to make progress in the peace treaty with the Soviet Union.

I learned from my father that you may have to risk your own life to make such a historic accomplishment. -Shinzo Abe

My high school years were fun and frustrating, typical of the teen years. The most important accomplishment was meeting my wife, Ruth. -Alan J. Heeger

I don't remember Bill Walsh being old. I remember young Bill Walsh. He wasn't gray-haired, and neither was I when we first met. His legacy will live on. Bill Walsh's name and his accomplishments will be remembered and revered so long as the great game of football is played. -Marv Levy

My biggest dream and my biggest accomplishment was to be on HBO and 'True Detective.' It was a show that I just fell in love with. -Adria Arjona

Education should learn from the positive side of gaming – reward, accomplishment, and fun. -Sebastian Thrun

The moments that I feel a huge sense of accomplishment are actually the smaller moments, not really the bigger ones, the televised ones. -Brie Larson

I have a lot of confidence through my accomplishments. I'm always trying to prove I'm not the worthless child they say I was. -Paul Greengard

We're raising a generation of kids who are being overly praised for incredibly minor accomplishments. I think it's counter-productive. -J. K. Simmons

I stand here today – in the shadow of my parents' and grandparents' accomplishments – because of their willingness to sacrifice and look to my future. -David Ige

The dynamic of fathers and sons seems to be more around competition regarding things such as knowledge, accomplishments, expertise. -Deborah Tannen

Simply as an exercise in efficient politics, Obama '08 rewrote the textbook. His accomplishment was historic and one that transformed how race and politics intersect in our society. Obama is the leading edge of this change, but his success is merely the ripple in a pond that grows deeper every day. -Gwen Ifill

Because I have moderated two general election debates – in 2004 and 2008 – I know better than to carp from the sidelines. I am confident in my accomplishment of having had Queen Latifah portray me on 'Saturday Night Live' both years. -Gwen Ifill

2013 was a year of great accomplishment for Duke: our first full year as a combined company. -Lynn Good

I used to feel unsafe right in the moment of an accomplishment – I felt the ground fall from under my feet because this could be the end. And even now, while everyone is celebrating, I'm on to the next thing. I don't want to get lost in this big cushion of success. -Rihanna

You want to please society. You want to be happy. You want to be well liked. You want to be held in high esteem and be respected. These are real things. You want respect from your peers, respect from your loved ones; you want to be looked up to for your achievements and your accomplishments. All of this requires conformity in some form or another. -Thomas Jane

That's my proudest accomplishment: that I don't feel like a grown-up. -Dawn Steel

The stoic drama 'A Somewhat Gentle Man' is photographed in a palate of steel gray tones that match Stellan Skarsgard's complexion. It's a low-blood-pressure version of the kind of thing James M. Cain used to do in his sleep, and its filmmaking accomplishment is as minimalist as its narrative ambition is minimal. -Elvis Mitchell

Personal power gives you a sense of accomplishment. It enables you to live fully and zestfully. It provides you with a mature reason for liking yourself better. To state it another way, it is the mark of a healthy and well-adjusted individual to seek self-advancement by mastering his human relations. -Vernon Howard

Whatever you want, you have the power to attain it. The man or woman who calmly and matter-of-factly accepts this pronouncement at face value will soon find himself working magical accomplishments far beyond that which he previously dreamed possible. -Vernon Howard

Creating a vertically oriented regional ecosystem is a pretty amazing accomplishment for any country or industry. -Steve Blank

The most important accomplishment, I believe, was my voting against the First World War. -Jeannette Rankin

I admire Trump for his accomplishments. -Michael Israel

I'm just trying to get those marquee victories and continue to get those accomplishments so when the time comes and the vote is cast, hopefully my spot is secured in the Boxing Hall of Fame. -Andre Ward

When I was 13, I thought I was pretty hot stuff because I knew BASIC programming, self-taught on the family's Commodore 64. One of my crowning accomplishments was writing a silly little program that showed a crudely-drawn Space Shuttle lifting off in a cloud of pixelated smoke. -Walter O'Brien

I am a 10th class pass in Hindi. From 7th grade to 12th grade, I was in Delhi; before that, I was abroad. I came in not knowing a word of Hindi in 7th grade and learned Hindi and passed the exam in 10th. I think I was north of 50 percent, so I feel very proud of that accomplishment. -Raghuram Rajan

Whether you're successful or not, you'll never actually feel the joys of accomplishment unless you love yourself. Success can be very difficult to deal with. You have to stay in the center. If you let your success define you, then you're really just setting yourself up for failure. -Goldie Hawn

I've always been about progress and accomplishment. When you set your mind toward a goal, you continue to have follow-through. -Ray Allen

I want to do something that I'm proud of and that I can look back on with pride of accomplishment. -Bruce Rauner

I'm interested in listening to the people who walk in the door. If your ego and your accomplishments stop you from listening, then they've taught you nothing. -Jimmy Iovine

I had a 20-year career. I have two children. The advantage of writing later in my life is that I already had a whole mature realm of accomplishments and responsibilities, an identity outside of being a writer. -Amor Towles

Half of the equation is men, and right now, unfortunately, men are running the majority of corporations, so we have to make sure that if that is the case, that they are respectful and honor women for their true accomplishments. -Gretchen Carlson

I am extremely proud of my accomplishments at 'Fox News' and for keeping our loyal viewers engaged and informed on events and news topics of the day. -Gretchen Carlson

Bringing the astronaut's nightmare to life so vividly is a remarkable accomplishment but Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron want more than just the adrenaline ride – they're feeding our wonder and inviting us to think deeply about profound questions of existence. -Nick Sagan

I'm not looking for 'outer esteem' anymore, what they call 'other esteem.' I'm looking for self-esteem. And people think that self-esteem is built with accomplishments. And, 'Hey, look what I did in my life.' -Lisa Lampanelli

Prince was a child of our city, and his love of his hometown permeated many of his songs. Our pride in his accomplishments permeates our love of Minneapolis. -Betsy Hodges

I have been measured on my merit and on my accomplishments. -Adena Friedman

I hope to be viewed and judged first and foremost by my accomplishments and capabilities as a leader – regardless of my gender. -Heather Bresch

Trump has given voice to a widespread public feeling of alarm, frustration, and anger over the direction our country is headed. For all of that, conservatives are deeply grateful. America needed a loud, rude wake-up call. No one else has done that, and that accomplishment is huge. -Tom Tancredo

I call myself the hardware shelf. There's a lot of awards and honors there. And I have earned that. I didn't ask for it, I didn't beg for it, I didn't pay for it. I earned that. People see the accomplishments – but it's good to remind people that so much strife and labor and tears and heartbreak came before that, that it really is earned. -Rita Moreno

Interest in the Founders has risen and fallen over time, as has admiration for them and their accomplishments. -H. W. Brands

I didn't want to write a book as Stephen King's son, because all I did was get born, and that's not much of an accomplishment. If that was the reason my book was published, it wouldn't be worth the paper it was printed on. I wanted to do my own thing. -Owen King

I know who Dick Gregory is; I knew what his accomplishments are. I certainly knew him as a comedian and an activist. -Joe Morton

We all work really hard, and we do it because we're passionate. We don't do it because we're being rated. However, we'd all be remiss if we didn't think that some kind of recognition for efforts and accomplishments didn't make you feel good. -Mindy Grossman

Making it to the finale of 'Dancing with the Stars' has been a major accomplishment. -Ginger Zee

No matter how old we are, there is nothing better then getting the approval from our parents and the sense that they are proud of our accomplishments in life. -Yolanda Hadid

When I was a teenager, I remember the extraordinary feeling of accomplishment for completing 'Vanity Fair.' I don't think it was even for school. -John Lithgow

We Americans forget or rewrite even our recent history, and accomplishments of any group not pale and male have tended to get downplayed or erased – one reason why Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and I founded the Women's Media Center: to make women visible and powerful in media. -Robin Morgan

When the people gave them the mandate to govern in 2008, these UDP leaders had one thing in mind: They run things. They forgot all their lofty promises to the people. They set out to crush the PUP and to erase all the accomplishments of the PUP years in government. -Said Musa

While the FAST Act is a significant bipartisan accomplishment that provides much-needed funding certainty, this modest increase in funding is hardly the bold, forward-thinking plan our country needs to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create a 21st-century transportation system. -Mike Quigley

The stories of accomplishments, achievements, challenges, problems, issues, concerns pass down through history, and those are things you take with you in your personal life wherever you go. -Linda Johnson Rice

'Callister' is feature-length, and it's one of the coolest things I've ever been asked to be a part of. It's poignant and moving and thrilling. If this was one movie, it would be an accomplishment, and they make six of them. -Cristin Milioti

In the big picture, few of our careers live up to the dreams we nursed when we were young. In fact, one underside of success is that it's nearly always penultimate, and so every accomplishment merely raises the bar. -Lionel Shriver

That's what you want to do, is get recognized for accomplishments you've had on the field, not off the field. That's always my goal, to find ways to do that. -Matt Cain

When I first started in this industry, my goal was to be some best friend. The sidekick. I thought that would be an accomplishment. -Janelle Monae

The accomplishment that I am most proud of is that 'Free Willy' and 'Dave' got a political message out, which isn't easy to do within the constraints of studio moviemaking. -Lauren Shuler Donner

I 'climbed' Sandia Peak outside Albuquerque. Which is really piddling as far as mountains go. It's a mere 9,000 feet and some change, and what I went up was a path on one of the gentler slopes. It's about seven miles to the summit, and I walked it with my husband, son, and brother-in-law. For me that was a tremendous accomplishment. -Sandra Brown

No matter all of your credits and accomplishments – you can be forgotten in a trice. The idea that you have to go back and start again after considerable success can destroy you if you're not strong. I never lost track of who I am and what I can do, because I continually find things to do, but not everyone has that resource. -F. Murray Abraham

When I see muscles that are more defined that I hadn't seen before, it's exciting. I love a muscular figure. It feels like an accomplishment, and it makes me feel strong, and I love having a strong body. -Candace Cameron Bure

I am very proud of my public record and the many accomplishments of my office. It has been a tremendous honor to represent the 6th District of Texas for over three decades, but now it is time to step aside and let there be a new voice. -Joe Barton

Becoming the first Indian woman to compete on Food Network's 'Iron Chef' and 'Next Iron Chef' was really a great accomplishment and led to my spot as a judge on 'Chopped.' -Maneet Chauhan

I made it to the top five on 'Dancing with the Stars.' To me, that was just a tremendous accomplishment. -Victoria Arlen

When you reach a level of status – and making it to college is an accomplishment in itself – you are trying to define who you are. -Kenya Barris

Big failures hold better lessons than any success – as long as you are in tune with yourself and are open to learning from them. I can trace every one of my accomplishments to earlier failures that I learned from. -Daniel Lubetzky

Substance over style is the rule for all resumes. Any special effects will dilute the gravitas and stature of the impression. You want people to concentrate on your accomplishments and your successes, not the curlicues of a font or unusual shades or contrast of colors. -Debbie Millman

What I find the most interesting about games is the feeling of accomplishment. I think this is an emotion that cinema can't do and books can't do. You feel like you've personally accomplished something. You feel you get better at something. -Jenova Chen

I think I've been able to find happiness, and I've learned to love myself. That's a huge accomplishment for anyone, learning to love yourself. -Jazz Jennings

Among her many accomplishments, my mother is often identified as the leader of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday movement. -Bernice King

Ronda Rousey is a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, and anything that Ronda Rousey does is going to come with extreme scrutiny because she is such a pivotal figure in not only American sports but in global sports as well. -Paul Heyman

God makes confetti out of our titles and accomplishments to celebrate the poor and the humble. -Bob Goff

Tim Kaine can't point to a single accomplishment in the United States Senate for Virginia or Virginians. -Corey Stewart

Economically anxious, many parents see their children's accomplishments as a sort of insurance against the financial challenges of old age; high-achieving kids, this logic goes, will become high-earning adults and therefore be better able to help Mom and Dad pay for the assisted-living facility in a few decades. -Alissa Quart

I created the first black superhero who was not a gangbanger or an African chief but was rather a college graduate and a professional, which I think is a big accomplishment. -Neal Adams

I want to add 'record mogul' to my list of accomplishments and make a disgusting amount of money so I can buy a house between Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. -Hunx

At 31, I decided to learn how to read and, at 32, read my first book: Lee Iacocca's autobiography. Ten years later, with my friend Larry 'Smokey' Genta, I wrote my first book, which was my proudest accomplishment. -Diamond Dallas Page

It's amazing what we've been through already in our lives no matter what our age. Think of what we've seen, people we've met, our relationships, experiences, and accomplishments. Reflection is a powerful tool. -Tara Stiles

There is a goodness about Yao that is unique, that never left him through all the pain and injuries and disappointments that accompanied his unprecedented accomplishments and successes. -Jeff Van Gundy

I have so many accomplishments under my belt. -Machine Gun Kelly

When I'm old, I'd like to wake up in the morning and not really do anything – just be happy to exist. I'd like to look at my accomplishments and sit back and revel in my own achievement. -Ben Gibbard

I can go into New York and sell out a theatre, but I didn't have to fight my way to get there: I was already a made man from television. I sold out a theatre in London without any TV exposure, just word of mouth and being a good comic, and that was a much bigger sense of accomplishment than just being a guy from telly. -Jim Jefferies

I really don't look at my accomplishments. I really don't think about myself much. -John Stockton

Getting 1,000 yards in the NFL is an amazing accomplishment, and being the first rookie ever for the Giants to do that is even a bigger one. It's big because even though my name might go in the record book, it's not just myself – it's the offensive line play and the guys in the running back room, all those guys have been a tremendous help. -Saquon Barkley

In our business, it's hard to look at anything in retrospect and look at your accomplishments because you're so busy thinking about the next week. What we do is 52 weeks a year. -Enzo Amore

Like any other entertainment medium, we must create an emotional response in order to succeed. Laughter, fear, joy, affection, surprise, and – most of all – accomplishment. In the end, triggering these feelings from our players is the true judgment of our work. This is the bottom line measurement of success. -Satoru Iwata

There are people who are unsure, and maybe their minds can be changed based on someone's work and accomplishments. Those people are the ones I'm interested in having stay tuned and watching for the rest of my career. -Adam Cole

We should be pointing out people's accomplishments rather than their looks, but if it can promote our band, why not? -Alissa White-Gluz

My mother and father didn't treat my brothers and sisters the same, so to treat 12 players exactly the same, that's a great accomplishment. -Kenny Smith
