    Richard Branson was one of the very first entrepreneurs who gave me a challenging view into the world of becoming an entrepreneur. The question at that point was, “was I ready”. After a few years of this “calling”. Challenging, but its worth it!

    Awesome post! Seems Richard had strong family back ground from most of his quotes being about his family. I like that. How ever my favorite quote is no. 73 about change that it is personal. i have learned that if you want to change anything in your life you have to personally take responsibility and make the change you want to see.

29 Epic Tom Hardy Quotes

Published

Tom Hardy Quotes
Image Credit | The Sun UK

Tom Hardy is an incredible actor. From appearing in Hollywood blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises; Hardy understands the value of endurance & sticking to your passion. Many people doubted him as he became an actor and his dreams of finding success. Now he has won multiple Oscars and is a respected member of the community.

Here are 29 of Tom Hardy’s greatest quotes:

1. “The only thing I can do is wipe my arse, brush my teeth, turn up, and do the best work I can.” – Tom Hardy

2. “It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is your plan.“ – Tom Hardy

3. “Love is doing something you don’t want to do for someone you don’t particularly like at that moment.“ – Tom Hardy

4. “I think it’s important that you always transform if you can. That’s what I was trained to do. You try and hide yourself as much as you can – that’s the key to longevity.“ – Tom Hardy

5. “I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.” – Tom Hardy

6. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it.” – Tom Hardy

7. “Fame and stuff like that is all very cool, but at the end of the day, we’re all human beings. Although what I do is incredibly surreal and fun and amazing and I’m really grateful for it, I don’t believe my own press release, do you know what I mean?“ – Tom Hardy

8. “Never give power to the big man.” – Tom Hardy

9. “A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn’t stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, “Look at me – I’m a great man.” A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn’t mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It’s not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what’s in front of your face. And to leave no f**king indelible mark of your ever being here, apart from the fact that you were there for your family to the best of your ability. It’s not an easy task. I’ll probably f**k it up.” – Tom Hardy

10. “I’m just getting settled as a responsible man – but if you split the elephant into little mouthfuls it will be fine.” – Tom Hardy

11. “I hate publicists and publicity. But I love people.” – Tom Hardy

12. “I’m not interested in walks in the parks. Anything difficult that people think I couldn’t play, I’m straight at it. If they say ‘Tom, don’t put your hand in the fire’, you know I’ll be coming out of it casually an hour later with third-degree burns and bandages up to my arms.” – Tom Hardy

13. “So, somewhere between that acceptance and doing my homework and being competitive and having ambition and loving my job and observing and reflecting my society, that’s where I find the purpose. Because a man needs purpose.” – Tom Hardy

14. “I guess is I had fifty million dollars I could spend more time at home…” – Tom Hardy

15. “There’s always a certain pride in getting the job done properly.“ – Tom Hardy

16. “You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” – Tom Hardy

17. “Responsibility has a cost, and there’s no such thing as perfection.” – Tom Hardy

18. “We’re all flawed human beings and we all have a cauldron of psychosis which we have to unravel as we grow older and find the way we fit in to live our lives as best as possible.“ – Tom Hardy

19. “No matter how much you can prepare for it, there’s nothing worse than the anticipation. It’s always the killer of everything. The actuality of doing something is normally a lot easier than the waiting for it.” – Tom Hardy

20. “Vanity is normal in performers. Does it bother other people? All the time. But nine times out of ten, that says more about them than you.” – Tom Hardy

21. “You don’t step on stage to eat; you go there to be eaten.” – Tom Hardy

22. “It is not the violence that sets a man apart, it is the distance heis prepared to go.” – Tom Hardy

23. “Spirituality seems to me to be for those who’ve been through hell.” – Tom Hardy

24. “I’m going to fail to hit the mark I’ve put up before me because it’s not possible to hit it. I want to be the best at what I do so I’ve got to get over myself already because that’s never going to happen. I ain’t ever going to be god.” – Tom Hardy

25. “But I do believe the time is now.” – Tom Hardy

26. “I’m here to challenge myself and to see whether I can shapeshift in an environment that’s actually quite daunting, but which I think would be nice to shine a light into.. The destination of any interesting drama is that you shine a light into a place that not many people know about.” – Tom Hardy

27. “Within the creative arts you can create things and destroy things. Passion creates and destroys.” – Tom Hardy

28. “I’m not really a road dog. I’m a bit of a homeboy. But the reality is, I love what I fucking do.” – Tom Hardy

29. “We are survivors. We control the fear. And without the fear, we are all as good as dead.” – Tom Hardy

I always had these misconceptions about success and what it took to achieve it. (more…)

    Richard Branson was one of the very first entrepreneurs who gave me a challenging view into the world of becoming an entrepreneur. The question at that point was, “was I ready”. After a few years of this “calling”. Challenging, but its worth it!

    Awesome post! Seems Richard had strong family back ground from most of his quotes being about his family. I like that. How ever my favorite quote is no. 73 about change that it is personal. i have learned that if you want to change anything in your life you have to personally take responsibility and make the change you want to see.

29 Epic Tom Hardy Quotes

Published

Tom Hardy Quotes
Image Credit | The Sun UK

Tom Hardy is an incredible actor. From appearing in Hollywood blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises; Hardy understands the value of endurance & sticking to your passion. Many people doubted him as he became an actor and his dreams of finding success. Now he has won multiple Oscars and is a respected member of the community.

Here are 29 of Tom Hardy’s greatest quotes:

1. “The only thing I can do is wipe my arse, brush my teeth, turn up, and do the best work I can.” – Tom Hardy

2. “It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is your plan.“ – Tom Hardy

3. “Love is doing something you don’t want to do for someone you don’t particularly like at that moment.“ – Tom Hardy

4. “I think it’s important that you always transform if you can. That’s what I was trained to do. You try and hide yourself as much as you can – that’s the key to longevity.“ – Tom Hardy

5. “I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.” – Tom Hardy

6. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it.” – Tom Hardy

7. “Fame and stuff like that is all very cool, but at the end of the day, we’re all human beings. Although what I do is incredibly surreal and fun and amazing and I’m really grateful for it, I don’t believe my own press release, do you know what I mean?“ – Tom Hardy

8. “Never give power to the big man.” – Tom Hardy

9. “A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn’t stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, “Look at me – I’m a great man.” A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn’t mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It’s not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what’s in front of your face. And to leave no f**king indelible mark of your ever being here, apart from the fact that you were there for your family to the best of your ability. It’s not an easy task. I’ll probably f**k it up.” – Tom Hardy

10. “I’m just getting settled as a responsible man – but if you split the elephant into little mouthfuls it will be fine.” – Tom Hardy

11. “I hate publicists and publicity. But I love people.” – Tom Hardy

12. “I’m not interested in walks in the parks. Anything difficult that people think I couldn’t play, I’m straight at it. If they say ‘Tom, don’t put your hand in the fire’, you know I’ll be coming out of it casually an hour later with third-degree burns and bandages up to my arms.” – Tom Hardy

13. “So, somewhere between that acceptance and doing my homework and being competitive and having ambition and loving my job and observing and reflecting my society, that’s where I find the purpose. Because a man needs purpose.” – Tom Hardy

14. “I guess is I had fifty million dollars I could spend more time at home…” – Tom Hardy

15. “There’s always a certain pride in getting the job done properly.“ – Tom Hardy

16. “You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” – Tom Hardy

17. “Responsibility has a cost, and there’s no such thing as perfection.” – Tom Hardy

18. “We’re all flawed human beings and we all have a cauldron of psychosis which we have to unravel as we grow older and find the way we fit in to live our lives as best as possible.“ – Tom Hardy

19. “No matter how much you can prepare for it, there’s nothing worse than the anticipation. It’s always the killer of everything. The actuality of doing something is normally a lot easier than the waiting for it.” – Tom Hardy

20. “Vanity is normal in performers. Does it bother other people? All the time. But nine times out of ten, that says more about them than you.” – Tom Hardy

21. “You don’t step on stage to eat; you go there to be eaten.” – Tom Hardy

22. “It is not the violence that sets a man apart, it is the distance heis prepared to go.” – Tom Hardy

23. “Spirituality seems to me to be for those who’ve been through hell.” – Tom Hardy

24. “I’m going to fail to hit the mark I’ve put up before me because it’s not possible to hit it. I want to be the best at what I do so I’ve got to get over myself already because that’s never going to happen. I ain’t ever going to be god.” – Tom Hardy

25. “But I do believe the time is now.” – Tom Hardy

26. “I’m here to challenge myself and to see whether I can shapeshift in an environment that’s actually quite daunting, but which I think would be nice to shine a light into.. The destination of any interesting drama is that you shine a light into a place that not many people know about.” – Tom Hardy

27. “Within the creative arts you can create things and destroy things. Passion creates and destroys.” – Tom Hardy

28. “I’m not really a road dog. I’m a bit of a homeboy. But the reality is, I love what I fucking do.” – Tom Hardy

29. “We are survivors. We control the fear. And without the fear, we are all as good as dead.” – Tom Hardy
