10 inspirational quotes, part 16

Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday.
Tomorrow is still beyond your reach.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

First we form habits, then they form us.
Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you.
Rob Gilbert

There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy.
And its only reward is that it’s easy.
Unknown

Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and
unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real
challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as
well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for
celebration. You are not here to fritter away your
precious hours when you have the ability to
accomplish so much by making a slight
change in your routine. No more busy
work. No more hiding from success.
Leave time, leave space, to grow.
Now. Now! Not tomorrow!
Og Mandino

Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.
Aldous Huxley

There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying things which are beyond the power of our will.
Epictetus

Every artist was first an amateur.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The soul of conversation is sympathy.
Thomas Campbell

When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.
Soren Kierkegaard

    I just happened to have been looking for quotes earlier on the same day that you posted this, so I thought I’d share what I found:

    “If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” -Thomas Edison

    “Nothing is predestined: The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.” -Ralph Blum

    “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” -Henry David Thoreau
