    • From Teddy:

      Far better it is to dare mighty things… to win glorious triumphs
      even though checkered with failure;
      than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither suffer much or enjoy much
      because the live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

      Theodore Roosevelt circa 1910

  2. Great set of quotes.
    One that I live by: “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
    Motivation has to be done not only daily, but all day long.

  4. This one speaks to me today: “The person that you will spend the most time with in your life is yourself, so you better try to make yourself as interesting as possible.” I have been having a difficult time emotionally these days, and that may be something I should work toward. Thank you, Hristiqn. Peace

    It’s great to stumble upon motivational inspiration, never know who might need it. =)

  7. That last one, “Comfort is the enemy of achievement?” Yeah, that one can go die in a fire.

    If it is true, then achievement is overrated.

    • Hey Hunter,
      Actually what the meaning behind the quote is that you have to go out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve something. Like you have to work harder, or risk more or sleep less. Like you can’t expect to achieve anything while doing nothing.

  12. You’re absolutely right about the power of some of these quotes.
    One that has served me well over the years, though I can’t remember
    where I first heard it, is “What other people think of me is none of my business.”

  42. I actually keep a list of sayings that I’ve written over the years (and some that I just co-oped and adapted). A couple that guide my life are:

    “Grant yourself 5 minutes to weep, moan and wail; then shut up and get on with it.”

    “If you can’t stand on your own two feet, then you’ll just have to stay there on the floor.”

    “If you don’t learn to laugh at Life, you’re just going to end up shooting somebody.”

  43. Michael AtkinsonReply

    Favorite Quote –
    Simplicity is just complexity, done well.

  44. Thanks for sharing ….The one that I like in recent times is ..”End of man is action and not thought.though it be of the noblest”…Bruce Lee

    • Another favorite of mine attributed to Bruce Lee:

      “Do not fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the problem.
      In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail.”

  45. Kev CampbellReply

    words I remember from college…from visiting prof Larry Halpern “have fun, make money, be ethical”

  46. The one I want to share is ” Strength is life, weakness is death “

  48. Be the change you would like to see in the world – Ghandi

  49. Nice and wonderful quotes

    “A single sentence can either make your day or in the same time ruin somebody’s day.” I fully agree with this statement.Quotes really can cheer up people .
    My personal favorite is “If you accept your limitations ou go beyond them”

    Thank you for sharing.

  50. Love the quote – and so true. We all journey through this life sharing a common experience but have our own perspective as well. To suddenly capture and hold ones life and work with others for achievement is one of the greatest gifts that can be given.

  51. Successful people do the things, that unsuccessful people are not willing to do

  52. My quote is:

    Everything is connected, the strings are there if you want to see them.

  53. Great quotes. Very inspiring.

    Wayne Gretzky once said “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” How can you achieve if you don’t even try!

  54. Excellent quotes. My favorites are from Oscar Wilde or Churchill!

  55. “What are you doing to justify your existence?”- Annette Beauregard

  56. “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is all you need”

  57. Don’t let success go to your head and failure go to your Heart 🙂

  58. Comfort is the enemy of achievement. That sentence really spoke to my soul. I’ve done some pretty awesome things when life has had me cornered and under intense pressure to act and produce favorable results.

  59. Claire SummersReply

    My favorite quote is….Don’t allow the sorrow of yesterday spoil the happiness of today!
    I love quotes also, like most females!

  60. I learned from the book The Perks of Being A Wallflower that “Things change, and friends leave, and life doesn’t stop for anybody.” I also learned that it was okay to feel things because It was my life I was living, not just watching happen.

  61. Have loved this quote for years:

    This above all, to thine own self be true.

    Only came across this one yesterday:

    There are 7 billion people in this world. Don’t let one person ruin your day.

  62. I just realize the truth in #1. I think it’s totally right, and I’m sure most people don’t know the fact is

  63. I love this. One of my favorite quote is simply, “she believed she could, so she did.” 🙂

    I love quotes just as much as I love affirmations. Both have the power to lift you higher


  64. Great inspirations! The 2nd one touched me most: “Climb mountains not so the world can see you but so you can see the world”

    The following one in regards to our thoughts have sticked with me deeply for the longest time: “Be careful what you wish for”

    Thanks for those wonderful words of deep wisdom!

  65. Thanks for a great list! Mine: “You can only captain your own ship.”

  66. Such motivating sentences. I love collecting some nice quotes and emotive language in my mind so when I face a situation where I feel stuck or at a loss I have something to turn to. When I do push-ups I always remember the quote about “I only start counting when it starts hurting” (I cannot remember if it was from Muhammad Ali or Bruce lee :S)

    For the same reason I like motivational videos.

  67. ‘The opportunity of a lifetime, must be taken in the lifetime of the opportunity!’

  68. Great Chris!
    This is such a Nice list of Quotes .. I am saving all these because I will share them with my friends on Fb and Google Plus..

    I also have so many fav quotes and once of them is : Those who complete their sleep, can’t chase their dreams..

  69. “My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations”

  70. The question isn’t who’s going to let me. The question is who’s going to stop me.
    – Howard Roarke, The Fountainhead

    Life itself is a race, marked by a start, and a finish. It is what we learn during this race, and how we apply it, that determines whether our participation has had particular value. If we learn from each success, and each failure, and improve ourselves through this process, then in the end, we will have fulfilled our potential and performed well.
    – Professor Porsche

    Most people think failure is the opposite of success, but it’s not. Failure is a required ingredient in the creation of success.
    – David Wendkos
