I recommend that the quotes should also include the source ... with respect to that individual.

Here's one (will CUM back and post more!):

"Many people think that if they were only in some other place,
or had some other job, they would be happy.

Well, that is doubtful.

So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can
and don't put off being happy until some future date."

... Dale Carnegie, author

I love reading quotations!

Here are a few of my favorites:


ON SUCCESS

“Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.”
~ George Sheehan


“Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.”
~ Anonymous


“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
~ Herman Cain




ON MOTIVATION

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
~ John Quincy Adams


“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”
~ Confucius


“Walking your talk is a great way to motivate yourself. No one likes to live a lie. Be honest with yourself, and you will find the motivation to do what you advise others to do.”
~ Vince Poscente




ON COURAGE/STRENGTH

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear”
~ Mark Twain


“I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life -- and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”
~ Georgia O'Keeffe (American Painter, 1887-1986)


“Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.”
~ Anonymous

sometimes the only thing that stands between you and achieving your goal is your own fear.

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the conquest of it.

she requires the hand of time


Keep in mind your goals of self-improvement;
move in their directon, and be patient.
The hand of time will do its work.

Kallor said: 'I walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'
'Yes,' said Caladan Brood, 'you never learn.'
