10 inspirational quotes, part 13

by Henrik Edberg

I gotta say, I really like the quote by Kirsten Zambucka. Hope you had a fun weekend.

When we argue for our limitations, we get to keep them.
Peter Mcwilliams

If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?
Oscar Hammerstein

I became an optimist when I discovered that I wasn’t going to win
any more games by being anything else.
Earl Weaver

To do two things at once is to do neither.
Publilius Syrus

We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing.
Action always generates inspiration.
Inspiration seldom generates action.
Frank Tibolt

Remove the word “problem” from your vocabulary and replace it
with “challenge”. Life will suddenly become a lot more
interesting and enjoyable.
Donna Watson

Though I might travel afar, I will meet only what I carry with me, for every
man is a mirror. We see only ourselves reflected in those around us.
Their attitudes and actions are only a reflection of our own.
The whole world and its condition has its counter parts within us all.
Turn the gaze inward. Correct yourself and your world will change.
Kirsten Zambucka

Watch your thoughts; they become your words.
Watch your words; they become your actions.
Watch your actions; they become your habits.
Watch your habits; they become your character.
Watch your character for it will become your destiny.
Unknown

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things
you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over
small things, but not you. Let others cry over small
hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future
in someone else’s hands, but not you.
Jim Rohn

Isn’t this #13? :)

I’m enjoying the series… thank you. I too especially like the Zambucka quote.

The quote by the Unknown I find really good. It reminds us that we are so much in control, but this control is veru subtle.

As a creative professional, I find the quote by Frank Tibolt really usefull. Often great ideas stay ideas, but when you’re just actively starting on any idea, usually its form will emerge out of the blue, and it will be really nice.

About the blog: Keep up the good work, it is important.

I just found this but I thought I’d let you know that this quote:

“Watch your thoughts; they become your words.
Watch your words; they become your actions.
Watch your actions; they become your habits.
Watch your habits; they become your character.
Watch your character for it will become your destiny.”

is from John Outlaw.
