Quotes for Inspiration July/August (06)

Euripides said The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man. I'm sure that means women too.

On intelligence

The sign of intelligent people is their ability to control emotions by the application of reason.
—Marya Mannes

On balance

The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.
—Euripides

So divinely is the world organized that every one of us, in our place and time, is in balance with everything else.
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

On having time

Avoiding the phrase "I don’t have time..." will soon help you to realize that you do have the time needed for just about anything you choose to accomplish in life.
—Bo Bennett

On recognition

Recognition is the greatest motivator.
—Gerard C. Eakedale

On motivation

Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people, but you can’t be two people. Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people.
—Lee Iacocca

On confidence

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
—Eleanor Roosevelt

On purpose

I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
—Leo Rosten

On satisfaction

Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you had everything to do, and you’ve done it.
—Margaret Thatcher

On mistakes

When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
—Hugh White
