Good to see Joss Whedon in the quotes :)

I just can't stop thinking how true the first one is.

My favorite quote has nothing to do with inspiration or anything useful. I just like to remind people: Always remember to party like a rock star.

Always good to remind ourselves of this. Have a great week!

I loved your quotes, especially the one of Joss Whedon.

All the quotes are great, but love the first one best.

I needed to read "The moment you are ready to give up..."

That one really hits home! Thanks for the nudge.....

Great quotes! I love being reminded of positive thinking! I don't recall seeing the one from King before!

Jeff Chapman said...

My favorite is the one from King. Most everything worth achieving in life involves a lot of hard work.

Jay Noel said...

Stephen King is right on. My favorite writer's quote is from Robert Cormier.

“The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, a brain surgeon.”

Stephen Hayes said...

One of my favorite quotes is from John Ruskin: When God created artists he made critics from the scraps that were left over.

Kim Lajevardi said...

Great quotes, Lex. My favorite is: "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

Lady Lilith said...

I am with you. Do not give up. Also do not listen to other who tell you to give up.
If I stopped every time someone told me I would fail, I would not be where I am today.

messymimi said...

Too many good ones to narrow it to one, and i'm going to have to add that first one to my list.

Kimberly said...

I love all of those. I like this one a lot too. :)

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. Brian Littrell.

Ava Quinn said...

"Never squat in your spurs."

Cathy Keaton said...

I think all these quotes are amazing! But, the Joss Whedon one speaks to me the most. I think I do the same thing.

Great post this month! ;)

Heather Holden said...

So many fantastic quotes! I really hope the one about quitting is true. I've been really struggling against the urge to quit lately...

Rhonda Albom said...

I love your quotes. My personal favorite is from Mark Twain “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.”

Winter Moon said...

Wonderful, inspiring quotes :)

These graphics are wonderful. I find quotes to be pick-me-ups.
