In the memorable words of actress Marlene Dietrich:
“I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognised wiser than oneself.”
To fill our mind with the brightest pearls of wisdom from the greatest men and women of letters is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
Herein below are some quotable quotes:
Great men are like eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude. Arthur Schopenhauer
The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves… self-discipline with all of them came first. Harry S Truman
I think self-discipline is something, it’s like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. Daniel Goldstein
Why the human brain has evolved to look so far into the future is so that we can take actions in the present that will bring us to a better future rather than a worse one. Daniel GoldsteinWe all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort. Jesse OwensIn the final analysis, attainment comes about as a result of conceiving, believing & achieving in whatever endeavour.
