Quotation Saturday

YOU ARE UNIQUE

"All I would tell people is to hold onto what was individual about themselves, not to allow their ambition for success to cause them to try to imitate the success of others. You've got to find it on your own terms."
- Harrison Ford

"Style is being yourself, but on purpose."
-Patricia Fripp

"The same God who created Rembrandt created you, and you are as precious in God’s sight as Rembrandt or anyone else."
-Zig Ziglar

RESOLVE

"Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind."
-Leonardo da Vinci

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing."
-Abraham Lincoln

"There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul."
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

PURPOSE

“No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.”
-- Denis Waitley

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
-- Martin Luther King, Jr.

“A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve.”
-- Oliver Wendell Holmes

CHOICES
 

You have got to stir up that dream inside of yourself. Your dreams and your destiny aren’t determined by “CHANCE” but by “CHOICE”!
- Gary Eby

Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
-Bible, John 8:32
 

The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear. --Herbert Agar
 

Truth is more of a stranger than fiction.
-MarkTwain (1835 - 1910)
