    I really love quotes. I find that they contain so much wisdom, can help me to ask myself great questions, lead me to great answers, inspire me, make me smile or laugh.

    What is your favorite quote or saying? Why?

    I have so many favorites, so I will pick one:

    "Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" -Ralph Waldo Emerson
    SEMrush
    I actually used this in a speech I once gave. I like this quote b/c I believe that each person's definition of success is slightly different, but that each person's version can serve to make the world a better place:)

    I look forward to hearing what quotes stand out for you guys:)

    My fav

    Men need only three things: food, sex, silence. Feed me, fuck me, shut the fuck up

    My son is now an 'entrepreneur'. That's what you're called when you don't have a job.

    I had to make my own living and my own opportunity! But I made it! Don't sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them!
    ...
    Find your passion… then it is no longer work!

    The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is to not try.

    Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration.

    Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival, but that's exactly what it is.

    Life is really simple as far as I’m concerned. There is no luck, you work hard and study things intently. If you do that for long and hard enough you’re successful.

    A friendship founded on business is a good deal better than a business founded on friendship

    High expectations are the key to everything.

    Yeah, I agree with this. Even if we have good reason, holding onto anger is really just poisoning us. Let it go:) Easier said than done, but worth it, I think.

    Hmm, is this part of a quote, or the whole quote? I think maybe your post got cut off. Thanks for posting though:)

    My favourites are:

    If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

    Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
