Today I thought I would share a few more of my all-time favorites.
These have encouraged me, and I hope they will encourage you. I made it a bit more special because you are. And, I do mean YOU. So, if you would like a beautiful copy to hang close by, just click on the download at the bottom. My little gift to you 🙂 because you’re worth it.
Sidenote: Quotes can be taken from a body of work (book, speech, newspapers, etc.) and often times they are.
For ex: The ‘quote’ from John Greenleaf Whittier is a line taken from the poem “Maud Muller”.
It just may turn out that the famous quote you love so much may never have been spoken by the quoted.
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
~ Calvin Coolidge
“Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.”

“Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.”
~ Thomas Jefferson – Especially for Christian!
“Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.”
~ C. S. Lewis

~ Jim Rohn
If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it.
Go out and get busy.”
~ Dale Carnegie
“Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.”
~ Eileen Caddy
“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
