What's Your Favorite Quote?

by Amanda K. Jones 181 replies
Thought it might be kinda fun to start a thread like this. Sometimes a little inspiration or humor is all it takes to get our creative butts into gear. Quotes are also a great way to connect with your readers--whether you're writing a blog post, email message, ebook, or whatever.

So here's my first contribution which is dedicated to all the great Warriors who have helped me out these past few days:

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little. -- Edmund Burke

Pass it on!

            "Life is not a sprint, its a marathon. A bad start does not really matter too much"

            Not sure if the below qualifies as a quote, but this really inspires me:

            "Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing"

                              There are so many good quotes that have inspired me, a few have been quoted here (especially Winston Churchills but hey I am British even if I do live in California)

                              My favorite and most inspiring quote is the one in my Sig from Albert Einstein and he is also the source of some other favorites and many apply to Internet Marketing:

                              "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
                              "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
                              "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."
                              "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character."
                              "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."

                              What can I say, the man was more than a scientific genius.

                      I found a great quote in "Predator". Near the end when Arnie's trying to get the Predator to follow him so he can crush it with a log he shouts

                      "DO IT, DO IT NOW!!!"

                      Not a proper quote by any means but if you think this way regarding your business then you'll get work done!

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

                    • This is one of my all-time favorite quotes, along with the one Paul mentioned: Choose Again

                      Youth is not a period of time. It is a state of mind, a result of the will, a quality of the imagination, a victory of courage over timidity, and the taste of adventure over the love of comfort. A man doesn't grow old because he's lived a certain number of years, he grows old because he deserts his ideal. The years may wrinkle his skins, but deserting his ideals wrinkles his soul. Preoccupation, fears, doubts, and despair are dust before death. You will remain young as long as you are open to what is beautiful, good, great and receptive to the messages of other men and women and nature and of God. If one day you should become bitter, pessimistic, and gnawed by despair, may God have mercy on your old man's soul.

                    Your children are not your children.
                    They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
                    They come through you but not from you,
                    And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

                    You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
                    For they have their own thoughts.
                    You may house their bodies but not their souls,
                    For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
                    which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
                    You may strive to be like them,
                    but seek not to make them like you.
                    For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

      "There is no such thing as failure. You either get the desired outcome, or your learn. No matter what the result, you win. The past does not equal the future. Every time we face a challenge we have a choice to make. Will we get bitter or better? Decide to get better. Face the challenge it's there to make you stronger. You will need that strength further down the road when you'll be facing even bigger challenges. The difference between people is there are those who are interested and those who are committed. The key to success in life is going from being interested to being committed. Once you are committed you will produce results. At the point of commitment, you mentally burn all bridges and you do whatever it takes to make it happen. That's when you become unstoppable."

    I've always loved the exchange between Alice and Chesire Cat in Wonderland.
    .................................................. .............

    `Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?' asked Alice

    `That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said Chesire Cat.

    `I don't much care where--' said Alice.

    `Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.

    `--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.

    `Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'"
    .................................................. ....

    If you don't know where you are heading, any direction will do. And if you walk long enough you will be sure to get somewhere.

    From My late uncle Bob something he said to me many years ago when he was teaching me to oil paint:

    " don't give up in whatever you do, because the minute you give up, you will never be able to take back those words, 'I give up' it plants a seed that can grow and lie dormant, and spring back to bite you in your ass.
    if you feel that you are not doing well step back and look at what you have done. take a break and do something else, because in time you will figure out what went wrong, you can always repaint your canvas and start over, but the minute you throw your canvas away, it is gone forever"

    When faced with a charging bull, the choice is not whether you grab the bull by the horns but whether or not you kiss it on the lips.

    "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

    Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

    Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

    Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

    Persistence and determination are omnipotent."

    U.S. President Calvin Coolidge

    Let's just make sure the goal is achievable!

    Hope This Helps!!
