My favorite quote here is ‘ I have always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Great quotes, I have take. More than one of this quote to heart. Great job

  • Dave Sweney

    Inspirational quotes that add a bit of humor are my preferences when it comes to quotes from famous people. They manage to get the point across while adding a bit of fun too. These are some really good ones you have selected! I have bookmarked the page to come back again when I need a boost (this happens!)…

    It must have been a hard task pulling all these in to publish them here. The one I like best is from Reba McEntire… “To succeed in life you need three things: A wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.” This is so true. Life will throw you for a loop regularly, and you have to deal with it, but you can still laugh while getting thrown!

    One other one that really stood out and rang true for me was from Lane Kirkland: “If hard work were such a wonderful thing, surely the rich would have kept it all to themselves!” That also rings true, and all the groupspeak that you hear about hard work is sometimes misleading (but there is nothing wrong with hard work)…

    I enjoyed this post! I will be coming back, no doubt. You are building a recharging station of sorts here, and I like it!

    • Etah

      Wow, nice selection, Dave.

      I love those quotes too.

      There 3 types of bones are key to maintaining a positive mindset as we work towards our goals.

      Great idea, saving the link to revisit later, we all need a regular those of motivation.

      I am glad you found this helpful.

  • Kehinde Segun

    Hi there 

    This is really wonderful. Seriously, they are sometimes that one will needs quote like these for sanity in our souls. The one that really got me is the quote from Joel Osteen that says “You cannot soar with the Eagles as long as you hang out with the turkeys.” which practically means you need to sacrifice comfort to achieve some level of success. I like the one from Willy Rodgers which simply means you need to work more harder when you are at the top. These quotes are motivating 

    • Etah

      I am glad you found them motivating.

      You are so right we all need daily motivations to keep things going even when we feel like giving up.

      I like your quote selection, we need to hang out more with people who challenge us to be better

      not with people who make us comfortable with no growth.

      Best regards to you.
