    Default Inspirational Quotations

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

    A little less poetic, but true nonetheless:

    "Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it"

    Be not astonished at new ideas; for it is well known to you that a thing does not therefore cease to be true because it is not accepted by many. -Spinoza.


    That's from the real Spinoza not me

    Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstances -- it was somebody's name, or he happened to be there at the time, or it was so then, and another day would have been otherwise. Strong men believe in cause and effect. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Yesterday is but a Dream, and To-morrow is only a Vision; but To-day well lived makes every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, and every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well therefore to this Day!

    A collection of my alltime favourites

    It's not what happens to you, but how you react to what happens that seperates the winners from the losers.

    If you tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe, he'll believe you. But if you tell him a park bench has just been painted, he has to touch it to be sure.

    A man may make many mistakes, but is not a failure until he starts blaming someone else for them.

    Don't speak unless you can improve on the silence

    The man who is too big for a small job, is too small for a big job.

    The best way to predict your future is to create it.

    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares?... He's a mile away and you have his shoes.

    Try to live in a place you like. Marry somebody you like. Try to do a job you like.

    -Billy Connolly

    The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps - We must step up the stairs.

    Its THAT quote that keeps me going in the early (lonely and cold) hours. It keeps me going at the gym when I am swimming.

    You just know that a job well done has enormous rewards for yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

    Oh yes, one more thing, that quote is something of a mantra but my basic philosophy (for what its worth) is "Do unto others as you would have done unto you".
    Have a wonderful day
