Top 10 motivational quotes

1. Four steps to achievement:
Plan purposefully.
Prepare prayerfully.
Proceed positively.
Pursue persistently.
William Arthur Ward

2. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more
common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a
proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and
determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "Press on" has solved and always will solve
the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge

3. If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all
humanity, it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life. Look it squarely in the
eye, and say, "I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me."
Ann Landers

4. Let us live so that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
Mark Twain

5. To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life. Foolish people are
idle, wise people are diligent.

6. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
Lao Tzu

7. I never knew an early-rising, hard-working, prudent man, careful of his earnings, and
strictly honest who complained of bad luck.
Henry Ward Beecher

8. Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.
Napoleon Bonaparte

9. Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.
Tryon Edwards

10. A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to
getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even
more rewarding.
Walt Disney
