Quotes to Live by in 2014

A good quote can guide our thoughts and intentions as we progress in life. These are a few of my favorites.

Soren Kierkegaard
“Life can be understood backwards-but it must be lived forwards.”
                                                    SOREN KIERKEGAARD


Maya Angelou
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
                                                   MAYA ANGELOU


Henry David Thoreau
“I’ve learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.  He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws will be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings…If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
                                            HENRY DAVID THOREAU


Oliver Wendell Holmes
“I find that the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it—but we must sail and not drift, nor lie in anchor.”
                                         OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES


John Wayne
“Talk low, talk slow, and don’t say too much.”
                                                 JOHN WAYNE


George Bernard Shaw
“I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder the work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations.”
                                          GEORGE BERNARD SHAW


Dick Gentry, Wesco Fabrics
“Live in the present. Leave a good impression wherever you go. Pursue your dreams and build those castles in the air as long as you put a foundation under them.  Get up and get it done. Listen more and talk less. Give 2014 everything you’ve got!”
