Awesome Quotes about Work and Motivation

Endure. Push on.
Endure. Push on.

Welcome back to Awesome Quotes! As the title announces, the topic for this Friday’s Awesome Quotes is work. And motivation. We all gotta do the former and for that we all need the latter in varying degrees. Sometimes a little motivation gets us by while other times you gotta dump it by the kilo.

So today, I’ve got ya’ll a collection of some of the finest, most motivating, uplifting and (hopefully) rejuvenating quotes to push you on to complete that assignment or that brief or go through that pile of files. I’m in need of some myself, in light of my upcoming exams and journal submissions and whatnot.

Enjoy, get motivated, take a good look at the pile of stuff you got to do, and then don’t look away, turn away from the screen and get down to work. And finish it. Preferably, listen to some Hans Zimmer or Jablonsky soundtracks while you’re at it, because that’s what a soundtrack – loving idiot like me would do.

“Whatever you are, be a good one.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – R. Collier

Aaand that’s all the motivation I could muster up for you guys today. But if you really look, you’ll see that motivation’s sprinkled everywhere. You just have to find it.

“People say motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Good bye folks, wishing you a very motivated weekend and feel free to have a second glance at these quotes before you head out for another dreary Monday!

Don’t forget to come back for the first, very special, Awesome Quotes of 2015 next Friday!

Awesome Quotes: Quotes That Just Are True

Awesome Quotes is back! (Yay!). Sorry for the little delay but I had a bit of an internet connection-related snafu.

So, today’s (well, actually yesterday’s) theme for Awesome Quotes is quotes that are undeniably true and totally apply to life. They just convey the truths of life in the best way possible. You may just crack up at how uncanny the resemblance with your life is, or at how it may feel that the author of the quote can read your mind or has secret cameras that record your life. Or the quote may push you into a state of thinking where you contemplate a lot of things, only to realise your food’s burning on the stove. Either way, they move you. So have fun, and those that are thinkers, make sure you’re not cooking while reading this.

Also, quick update: this feature’s name has been altered to simply ‘Awesome Quotes’ (from ‘Awesome Quotes I Came By’) for the sake of brevity.

“The only normal people are the ones you don’t know very well.” – Alfred Adler

If you’ve made a really good friend over time, you’ll understand this.

“If you don’t want anyone to find out, don’t do it.” – Chinese Proverb

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Acceptance is bliss.

“Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is more painful than being stuck where you don’t belong.” – Mandy Hale

“Some people will never ‘get you’. Do not spend eternity asking why. People will see you differently, just cherish those who lift your soul.” – Dodinsky’s Garden of Thoughts

Again, acceptance, and letting go.

“Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?” – Danielle LaPorte

That’s who really matters.

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” – Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones)

Aaand that’s it for this edition of Awesome Quotes! Usually I would say, “Come back next Friday for the next edition of Awesome Quotes!” but I’m going to be out of town holidaying away the Christmas so Awesome Quotes will return on the 26th of December. Sit tight, and happy holidays to ya’ll!
