I love motivational quotes – the simplicity and elegance of a powerful quote sets off an internal spark like few other things in life can. I find it to be great for motivation and goal setting to have them everywhere. I have posters and images all over my office with some of my favorite quotes. When I’m feeling down or lacking vision, sometimes a quick glance is all it takes to get my act together.
32. "People tell me, 'You're such an optimist.' Am I an optimist? An optimist says the glass is half full. A pessimist says the glass is half empty. A survivalist is practical. He says, 'Call it what you want, but just fill the glass.' I believe in filling the glass." Louis Zamperini, Don't Give Up, Don't Give In: Lessons from an Extraordinary Life
While many of these funny quotes are attributed to famous people, don’t overlook the anonymous and unknown entries. They can provide just as much laughter, even though nobody took credit for them. For example, who doesn’t love: “When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did, in his sleep—not screaming, like the passengers in his car.”
A moat can be a pretty good thing. It can be lovely. It keeps rodents away from the castle. It can have fish in it. Even fish that talk. … If you give people access, they take advantage. My phone would ring 75 times in a row. Finally, I would pick it up and say, ‘Who the hell is this?’ ‘Oh, hi! I’m calling from so-and-so’s office…’ What kind of person would ever, ever let the phone ring 75 times? And I guess that’s when I started thinking: I can do without these people. Bill Murray
I love this quote "I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness." its it soooo true. We keep forgetting that we're truly in charge of how we feel every single day. Getting you up you get to decide how whether you want to be happy or not. The decision is truly yours! Wake up with a smile everyday, enjoy little things, life is about journey not destination!
Eventually you will have to decide whether you focus your attention on the problem, or possible ways to rise above it. This decision will either make or break your success. Only those who cultivate the willingness to rise above everything that tries to drag them down will advance in life. Whining and complaining about misfortunes will not lead you anywhere.
In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm! -Sean Morey
38. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
Every single person in this world has a friend. For some of us it’s someone from a close circle of people or a family member, for other it can be a pet, there are also people who can call every living creature their friends. The chances are you’ve already read these famous quotes on friendship before, but they are so great that it won’t do any harm to read them one more time. Enjoy!
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
