Weekend Quotes To Keep You Going


As we enjoy our weekend, lets not forget that which drives us most, ourselves. These quotes should help with inspiration to come Monday morning! I know I need all the inspiration I can get by then :-)

Michelangelo on hard work: “If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.”

Margaret Young on motivation: “Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.”

Teddy Roosevelt on living: “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

William Jennings Bryan on destiny: “Destiny is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice: it is not to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”

Nikos Kazantzakis on believing: “By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”

Buddha on work ethic: “Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.”

Pablo Picasso on success: “My mother said to me, “If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general, if you become a monk you’ll end up as the pope.” Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”
