Some new quotes to inspire on a monday!

Pick one…

Abraham Lincoln:

The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act, as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of the word liberty; and precisely the same difference prevails today among human creatures.

Alice Walker:

This is how change happens, though. It is a relay race, and we’re very conscious of that, that our job really is to do our part of the race, and then we pass it on, and then someone picks it up, and it keeps going. And that is how it is. And we can do this, as a planet, with the consciousness that we may not get it, you know, today, but there’s always a tomorrow. (interview broadcast on Nov. 11, 2008)

Scott Alexander:

All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.

Michael Jordan:

I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.

Martin Lowenthal:

Compassion is a foundation for sharing our aliveness and building a more humane world.

Anne Frank:

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

Douglas Adams:

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Fred Brooks:

How does a project get to be a year behind schedule? One day at a time.

John Andrew Holmes:

Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both.
