Recently Collected Quotes

My mind’s distracted by work and projects. I need to write them all down and get them out of my head. Prioritize and tackle the list. First on the list is writing, and in writing I’m tackling another distraction: I’ve noticed my quote collection piling up again, which means I’m not sharing enough of them. I save quotes for blogs, for inspiration, for reflection… or simply to remind myself that others thought deeply before my attempts to do so, so get out of your head and do something. I was raised to share, so here are some favorite recent acquisitions to the collection:

“Don’t do things that you know are morally wrong. Not because someone is watching, but because you are. Self-esteem is just the reputation that you have with yourself. You’ll always know.” – Naval

“Wild success requires aggressive elimination. You can’t be great at everything.” – James Clear

“Every great thing is done in a quiet, humble, simple way; to plow the land, to build houses, to breed cattle, even to think—you cannot do such things when there are thunder and lightning around you. Great and true things are always simple and humble.” – Leo Tolstoy

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” – Marcus Aurelius

“Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.” – Mortimer J. Adler

“Write in recollection and amazement for yourself.” – Jack Kerouac

“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” – Henry David Thoreau

“Nothing is so certain as that the evils of idleness can be shaken off by hard work.” —Seneca

Until tomorrow then…
