Over the years, I’ve accumulated the following motivational quotes that I read occasionally, together with a short course in human relations.

Hope you enjoy them:


• The man who believes he can do something is probably right, and so is the man who believes he can’t.

• I would rather attempt to do something great and fail, then attempt to do nothing and succeed.

• The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work.

• You can do a lot with a little that is totally dedicated.

• What you do with your problem is far more important than what your problem does to you.

• Great discipline generates enormous strength.

• Great people are ordinary people with an extraordinary amount of determination.

• Character is not an inheritance; each person must build it for himself.

• The self-motivated man is one who has developed more of the God-Given Potential all of us Possess!

• A SUCCESSFUL player is one who decided to SUCCEED and WORKED. A FAILURE is one who decided to succeed and WISHED. A decided failure is one who FAILED to DECIDE and WAITED.

• The temptation to laziness never grows old.
