Inspiring Quotes

For those seeking some inspiration and motivation…

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”
A student in Warren G. Tracy’s class, entrepreneur

“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”
– Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Enterprises

“Failure defeats losers, failure inspires winners.”
Robert T. Kiyosaki, author, entrepreneur, investor

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”
– Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s

“As long as you’re going to be thinking anyway, think big.”
– Donald Trump

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”
Mark Twain, author

Here’s something I recently came across, but it really struck a chord with me:

The master in the art of living
draws no sharp distinction between
his labor and his leisure,
his mind and his body,
his work and his play,
his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence
through whatever he is doing
and leaves others to determine
whether his is working or playing.
To himself, he is always doing both.
– James A. Michener

Are there any quotes you’d add to the list? Post below and I’ll put them in!
