Words of Inspiration and Wisdom.

I'm tidying my room, and throwing lotsa old notebooks out. One of them is one which has an inspirational quote as a footer. I love the quotes, so I'll type 'em up, so I always have them.


If you don't have clear goals in life, you are destined to work for someone who does.

Many people are like a wheelbarrow - they go no further than they are pushed.

A winner says, "It may be difficult, but it's possible." A loser says, "It may be possible, but it's too difficult."

If you don't enjoy what you have now, how can you be happier with more?


The mind is like a parachute, it works best when it is open.

Forget injuries, never forget kindness.

Bad habits are like a comfortable bed... easy to get into, but hard to get out of.

A sign of greatness is to be able to laugh at yourself with others - and enjoy it as much as they do.

Even a fool is wise if he keeps silent.


A true friend is one who thinks you're a good egg even though you're half-cracked.

It doesn't matter what you can do, what matters is what you will do.

Don't throw away the old bucket until you know whether the new one holds water.

Don't speak unless you can improve on the silence.

Failures are divided into two categories-- those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.

Children are a poor man's wealth.

Better to light the candle than to curse the darkness.

Don't worry about growing slowly, worry only about standing still.

A hundred mistakes are an education if you learn something from each one.

Ask about the neighbours, then buy the house.


If life gives you lemons, just make it into lemonade!

Give some people an inch and they think they are rulers.

If you cannot get what you like, why not like what you get?

Do not think you are necessarily on the right road just because it is a well-beaten path.

Our strength is shown in the things we stand for, our weakness is shown in the things we fall for.

The main difference between the wise man and a fool is that a fool's mistakes never teach him anything.

Oh and er, here's a Mad Men-style me:
