I like to read these quotes especially on days when just about everything goes wrong (like yesterday). I feel better after reading motivational or perserverance quotes and they get me focused and in a positive thinking mode.
"The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck."
"In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins- not through strength but by perseverance."
~H. Jackson Brown~
"Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn."
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do."
"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."
"People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success."
~ Norman Vincent Peale ~
"Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
~ Mark Twain ~
"If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed."
~ David Viscott ~
