I have so many really good quotes for inspiration this month, it was hard for me to find one to highlight. However, I think the one from Walter Winchell says so much; A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. Winchell was a controversial newspaperman and powerful gossip columnist, he died in 1972.
We eat to please ourselves, but dress to please others.
It has been my experience that those with no vices have very few virtues.
Celebrate for a nanosecond. Then move on.
Goodwill is the one and only asset that competition cannot undersell and destroy.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
—John Quincy Adams
Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be.
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.
Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.
Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes”; They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”
Hone your skills for work and family and you hone them for living life to the fullest
