Saturday Snapshots

Saturday, February 16, 2013

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

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes.
In order to be free, we must learn how to let go.
Release the hurt. Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain your old pain.
The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.
What is it you would let go of today? 
-Mary Manin Morrissey

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Motivation is what gets you started.
Habit is what keeps you going. 

Only those who dare to fail greatly
can ever achieve greatly.
-Robert F Kennedy

It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.

It doesn’t matter if you try and try and try again, and fail.
It does matter if you try and fail,
and fail to try again.
-Charles Franklin Kettering
People often say that motivation doesn’t last.
Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.
-Zig Ziglar

When you know what you want,
and you want it badly enough,
you’ll find a way to get it
-Jim Rohn

Desire is the starting point of all achievement,
not a hope, not a wish,
but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
-Napoleon Hill

Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end.
It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing,
it’s when you’ve had everything to do
and you’ve done it!
-Margaret Thatcher

Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing. 
-Harriet Braiker

To be beautiful is to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You just need to accept yourself.

    Beautiful blog and great quotations. Love the pictures that you found to go with them. I'm thinking of buying a pretty journal and keeping special quotes that have to do with music and spirituality.
