Quotation Saturday

PASSION

You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you're doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle."
-- George Lucas

"Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, ‘This is the real me,’ and when you have found that attitude, follow it."
-- William James

"The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions."
-- Alfred Lord Tennyson

"Passion, though a bad regulator, is a powerful spring."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

PARENTING/FAMILY

"Young people's values are a reflection of significant adult role models."
-- Denis Waitley

"It is better to earn the trust and respect of one child than to gain notoriety and the adulation of the masses."

 -- Stephen R. Covey

"Children have never been very good at listening to adults but they have never failed to imitate them."
-- James Baldwyn

MOTIVATION/INSPIRATION

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing that's why we recommend it daily."
-- Zig Ziglar

"The greatest composer does not sit down to work because he is inspired, but becomes inspired because he is working."
-- Ernest Newman

"A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one."
-- Mary Kay Ash

"When a goal matters enough to a person, that person will find a way to accomplish what at first seemed impossible."
-- Nido Qubein
FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
--Pamela Vaull Starr
 
The end of wisdom is to dream high enough not to lose the dream in the seeking of it.
--William Faulkner
 
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
--Patrick Henry
 
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
--Lanston Hughes
