Quotes I Love, Volume 1

Quotes I Love, Volume 1 150 150 Jason Lauritsen

I am  not a collector.  Just don’t have the wiring for it.  But, as with everything, there is always an exception.  The closest I come to being a collector is that I have historically saved quotes.  These little sound bites matter to me.  In each I find a spark or insight that sticks with me.  And the magic of a great quote is that you can return to it years later and it will spark the same insight.  So, if you love quotes, I’m going to share with you some of my favorites here.  If quotes annoy you, you can bail out on this post now.

Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing. – Oscar Wilde 

Out of difficulties grow miracles. – Jean de La Bruyère 

Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings. – Samuel Johnson 

The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it. – Lou Holtz 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. – Winston Churchill 

Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. – Vincent Van Gogh 

The value of an idea lies in the using of it. – Thomas Edison 

Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers. – Voltaire

Quotes are powerful.  Perhaps these have spoken to you in the way they spoke to me.  Please share your favorites in the comments here if you are so moved.  I will add them to my collection.  

Have a great day!
