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:





“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






“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






“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

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.'

Varys is talking to Eddard in the dungeon and says to him...


"You are an honest and honorable man, Lord Eddard. Oftimes I forget that. I have met so few of them in my life." He glanced around the cell. "When I see what honesty and honor have won you, I understand why."



"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall live and die at my post. I shall hold no lands and father no children. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of man. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come."


The Vow of the Night's Watch



Game Of Thrones by George R.R Martin

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

-Bene Gesserit litany against fear


from Frank Herbert's Dune
