My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.
A desire presupposes the possibility of action to achieve it; action presupposes a goal which is worth achieving.
To hope is to wait for things to come to you. To dream is part of the process of setting goals and then striving to achieve them. You first must dream of doing things before you can do them.
Every day I play golf, that’s my goal. To break 70 the other way. To shoot 70 or better.
The goal of the human soul is conquest, perfection, security, superiority.
The style of life is a unity because it has grown out of the difficulties of early life and out of the striving for a goal.
The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
God who is eternally complete, who directs the stars, who is the master of fates, who elevates man from his lowliness to Himself, who speaks from the cosmos to every single human soul, is the most brilliant manifestation of the goal of perfection.
I’ve always wanted to become a professional soccer player.
Whenever people say “women’s soccer,” I want to correct them to say “soccer.” Every girl has had their sport diminished because they’re girls.
I never look at the goalkeeper’s eyes.
I could be a model for one night. But I’m also a professional soccer player, and I like to be taken seriously on the field.
Sportsmanship is definitely an important thing in all sports. In soccer, we all respect each other on such a high level, between Sweden and Brazil and Japan or whatever team it is.
Soccer is what I grew up doing – it’s my passion, and I’m way more comfortable on the field in my soccer cleats.
Music is so huge to soccer, to my life, to working out. I usually have headphones when I’m cleaning the house or making dinner.
I want to know I made women’s soccer better than it was when I came into it.
We’re going to be World Champions…forever.
I really like my legs because I’ve worked hard for them. With soccer, that’s the one thing you’re working all the time.
My favorite goals are the ones when there’s so much pressure. I focus more when the game is on the line.
Around the age of 14, I was very discouraged from a coach. It was my first youth club team while playing soccer. She told me at the time that I wasn’t good enough to play on the team, that I would never get into the game.
