Thus Quoth...

... Nope, not the Raven, but a whole bunch of other people! LOL... Today, I thought I'd share some of my favorite quotes. They're about persistence, creativity, motivation... all the things we need to keep on keeping on.

I hope you enjoy them.

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

— W. W. Ziege

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek."

— Mario Andretti

"The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas."

— Dr. Linus Pauling

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

— Mark Twain

"We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit."

— Aristotle

Feel like writing now? I know I do!!!
