  1. This is great! I can imagine all sorts of inspirational motivations that has been put up! Excellent! I will use them always as they inspire me, my family, friends, people I work with, the nation and the whole world. Many thanks.

  2. Great quotes, great site and i’m glad i found it. here’s another quote:

    “The only person that stops YOU from living your dreams life is YOU!!”

  3. What about your past would you change and why ?….. And this was my answer…….
    Nothing…without failure…there is no success…Every aspect of life has molded me into a successful person.. Thankful for all the lessons learned… without the past there is no future…..

  4. “Divorce the past to marry the present and be blessed with a lovely child of future.” ~ Anuj Somany

    “Never judge any person by his answers or questions but by his nature of character solely.”

    “Efforts depend on individuals, but results rely on mere conditions.”

  5. The Rissen

    As night befalls me and the dark devours my hopes, I sway my mind in opposition towards the demon that has erased my future and is ready-ing my past. There is no road towards my destination. My path continues unwillingly and uncertain. I see the light. This battle has begun only when i thought it has ended.

  6. Anyone can do anything if they try. No matter how hard a task, if you just your try best, and believe in yourself anything is possible. WE live in the America, the land of freedom. “Although the poorest of people can do great things here, it’s the believers who become the best.” My grandfather once told me. There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren’t the way you had hoped they would be. That’s when you have to tell yourself that things will get better. The challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you.

  7. The first quotation on your website attributed to Marianne Williamson is actually from Nelson Mandela’s 1994 Inaugural Speech. She has used both direct quotes and paraphrasing. I think Mandela should be cited. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.”

    1. Hi Betty,

      Thanks for comment. I researched this years ago since I saw the quote being attributed to both people which is why I credited the quote to Marianne Williamson. The quote is from her book, “A Return to Love“, which I have. It was written in 1992.

      I looked up the sources again after seeing your comment. Nelson Mandela made two inaugural speeches in 1994. You can find the transcript here and here. You could also watch the video of the speech here. I hope that clears things up.

  8. What a great repository of quotes…I have visited weekly for about the past year…thanks, Kevin! You can visit my collection, “On Topic”, at ralewis.tumblr.com. “Just once daily for vitality!”

  9. “what you become is what you choose to become. if some one say you cant do it prove them wrong, if you never believed you had a chance prove your self wrong never leave your self wondering what could have happened and find out what will happen.”

  10. What an awesome collection of quotes!! I particularly love this one:

    “Too many people are thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, when they ought to just water the grass they are standing on.”

    - Amar Dave

    keep it up!

  11. “I don’t regret the things I’ve done, I regret the things I didn’t do when I had the chance.”

  12. I saw a quote you made about someone having a calling. I’ed like to put it in a book I am writing about Benjamin Lundy. He had a calling. Can you tell me who wrote it or how I can quote you??

  13. Beautiful collection!!!!!!!!! Thanks for posting …….
    The one i liked the most was – If you argue for your limitations, sure enough they are yours.
