Here are 10 great quotes I came across this week.
Beethoven’s quote means so much more when you realize all he went through to create his art.
I think the best part of Lombardi quote is the “…you don’t do things right once in a while…”
The Walt Disney quote might promise too much, but having courage to try to be our true selves is a powerful idea.
The Will Rogers quote is a classic for good reason.
John C. Maxwell is always a great source of quotes and I couldn’t agree more about the power of routines.
Finally, the Seneca quote should be something we all review daily.
1 – Ah! how could I possibly quit the world before bringing forth all that I felt it was my vocation to produce? – Beethoven
2 – Winning is not a sometime thing, it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing. – Vince Lombardi
3 – I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen. – Ernest Hemingway
4 – Napoleon who said, “The only conquests which are permanent and leave no regrets are our conquests over ourselves.”
5 – All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney
6 – Will Rogers once said, “Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people they don’t like.”
7 – “The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” – John C. Maxwell
8 – It’s not because things are difficult that we don’t dare. It’s because we don’t dare that things are difficult. – Seneca
9 – Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare…” – Japanese proverb
10 – “It’s bad to have an opinion you’re proud of if you can’t state the arguments for the other side better than your opponents. This is a great mental discipline.”- Charlie Munger
