Daily Motivating Quotes: Number 397

 
 

“I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze
than it should be stifled by dry rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor,
every atom of me in magnificent glow,
than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.”

 

Jack London

Daily Motivating Quotes: Number 395

 
 

“To be effective as a leader or parent,
you need to maintain a level of consistency.
If you’re not consistent in your actions,
people may be guarded around you
and misunderstand your communication.
Others may assume a defensive position.
Your self-control can help you be consistent and better understood.”

Daily Motivating Quotes: Number 394

 
 

“All things are mirrors in which you see yourself reflected,

and the gloom which you perceive in your work

is but a reflection of that mental state which you bring to it.

Bring a right, an unselfish, state of heart to the thing,

and lo! It is at once transformed,

and becomes a means of strength and blessedness,

reflecting back that which you have brought to it.”

 

James Allen (Byways To Blessedness)

Daily Motivating Quotes: Number 393

Daily Motivating Quotes: Number 391

 
 

“It would be impossible to love another person
without first feeling love for yourself,
because how could you give away something that you don’t have?
It is important to develop the deep-down,
inside-the-skin feeling of deserving the abundance.
Self-esteem is felt even though you may not have done anything yet,
but just feel the capacity for it.”

Daily Motivating Quotes: Number 390

 
 

“In the world’s broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.

Let us then, be up, and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labour, and to wait.”

 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (A Psalm Of Life)
