10 inspirational quotes, part 8

by Henrik Edberg

that they are wiser than they, and before the young had discovered
what nonsense this was they were old too, and it
profited them to carry on the imposture.
W. Somerset Maugham

An age is called Dark, not because the light fails to shine,
but because people refuse to see it.
James Michener

Arnold Palmer

When you come right down to it all you have is yourself.
The sun is a thousand rays in your belly. All the rest is nothing.
Pablo Picasso

A good idea will keep you awake during the morning,
but a great idea will keep you awake during the night.
Marilyn Vos Savant

To find in ourselves what makes life worth living is risky business,
for it means that once we know we must seek it.
It also means that without it, life will be valueless.
Marsha Sinetar

Remember you dreams are only schemes so keep on pushing
Curtis Mayfield – Move on Up

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience
in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do
the thing which you think you cannot do.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
Some guys come home from work and wash up,
And go racin´ in the streets
Bruce Springsteen – Racing in the Streets

People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success
because they don’t know when to quit.
Most men succeed because
they are determined to.
George Allen
