"There never was night that had no morn.”

"Everything that is done in the world is done by hope."

Adorns and cheers our way;
And still, as darker grows the night,
Emits a brighter ray.

"An unwritten want is a wish, a dream, a never-happen. The day you put your goal in writing is the day it becomes a commitment that will change your life. Are you ready?" -Tom Hopkins

"Goal-setting illuminates the road to success just as runway lights illuminate the landing field for an incoming aircraft." -Nido Qubein

"The establishment of a clear central purpose or goal in life is the starting point of all success." -Brian Tracy

We find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve. --

"When death, the great reconciler, has come, it is never our tenderness that we repent of, but our severity."
--T.S. Eliot

"We should every night call ourselves to an account: What infirmity have I mastered today? What passions opposed! What temptation resisted? What virtue acquired?"

"Look at your past. Your past has determined where you are at this moment. What you do today will determine where you are tomorrow. Are you moving forward or standing still?"
--Tom Hopkins

"We should learn, by reflection on the misfortunes of others, that there is nothing singular in those which befall ourselves."
--Thomas Fitzosborne

It is defeat that turns bone to flint; it is defeat that turns gristle to muscle; it is defeat that makes men invincible. Do not then be afraid of defeat. You are never so near to victory as when defeated in a good cause.
--Henry Ward Beecher

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.

Try not to become a man of success, but rather a man of value.
--Albert Einstein

SO many great quotes. How can I pick one or two?

I love keeping quotes around for motivation. Some days I search for one just for that day. Something that inspires me at the moment.

When I read the quotes you pick each week, Joni, you become my inspiration.
