Motivational quotes special ones

Motivational quotes that I shared in 2007 .  I’m pasting them here now because they’re some of the better ones…or ones that I liked more than average.  Enjoy.
“You can have anything you want–if you want it badly enough.
You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to
accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.”
-William Adams

“He who stops being better stops being good.” -Oliver Cromwell
“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting
for our wits to grow sharper.” -Eden Phillips

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how
close they were to success when they gave up.” -Thomas Edison

“If you’re bored with life — or you don’t get up every morning
with a burning desire to do things — you don’t have enough
goals.”  -Lou Holtz

“ALL rewards come from doing, not from knowing.” -unknown
“Nothing more completely baffles one who is full of tricks
and duplicity than straightforward and simple integrity in
another.” -Charles Caleb Colton

“That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly.  It
is dearness only which gives everything its value.  Heaven knows
how to put a proper price on its goods.”  -Thomas Paine

“Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he
is reaching out and striving for his goals.”  -Aristotle

“When one door closes another door opens; but we often look
so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not
see the ones which open for us.”  -Alexander Graham Bell

“…the unpardonable sin is to be an unpleasant person.”
-Galen Starr Ross

“Be stirring as the time, be fire with fire, threaten the threatener,
and outface the brow of bragging horror; so shall inferior eyes,
that borrow their behaviours from the great, grow great by your
example and put on the dauntless spirit of resolution.” -Shakespeare

“Do a little more than average and from that point on our
progress multiplies itself out of all proportion to the effort
put in.”  -Paul J. Meyer

“Sorrow is the mere rust of the soul. Activity will cleanse
and brighten it.”  -Samuel Johnson

“Down deep in every soul has a hidden longing, impulse, and
ambition to do something fine and enduring…If you are willing,
great things are possible to you.”  -Grenville Kleiser

“If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair.
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works
are performed not by strength, but perseverance.” -Samuel

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste
a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed.
The fact is, most putts don’t drop. Most beef is tough. Most
children grow up to be just people. Most successful marriages
require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are more
often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old-time rail
journey–delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts,
interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and
thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for
letting you have the ride.” -Jenkins Lloyd Jones

“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to
begin - real life.  But there was always some obstacle in the
way.  Something to be got through first, some unfinished business,
time still to be served, a debt to be paid.  Then life would
begin.  At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my
life.”  -Fr. Alfred D’Souza

“One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes, another for 30 days,
but it is the man who has it for 30 years who makes a success
of his life.” -Edward B. Butler

“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be
perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less
than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each
step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and
more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more
successful.”  -Mark Victor Hansen
